It’s the middle of the year, the days are getting colder and the mid-year doldrums are really starting to set in at work… Which means it’s time to treat yourself to a little staycay to get away from it all.
There’s one luxury hotel perfectly positioned amidst the heritage-lined streets of the Perth CBD that’s ready to help you get away from it all with warm, welcoming arms – the InterContinental Perth City Centre.
Just walking into the hotel’s luxurious lobby is a treat unto itself, the walls lined with arresting artworks from only Western Australian artists (there are 300 bespoke pieces overall in the hotel), offering a distinctly WA flavour.
A true inner city sanctuary on the corner of King and Hay Street, not only are you across the road from the stunning Edwardian architecture of His Majesty’s Theatre, you’ve also got galleries, alfresco dining and ritzy retail right on your doorstep.
That’s if you can be tempted to venture outside, though. The InterContinental’s sleek, contemporary rooms have been thoughtfully designed by renowned architecture firm Woods Bagot, offering spectacular city skyline views, world class service, relaxing rain shower and bougie Byredo bathroom amenities.
And while there’s an array of fantastic dining options all within walking distance, it’s hard to go past the vibrant Spanish tapas-style dining of Heno & Rey. A vibrant and deliciously authentic dining experience, we’re talking Snapper Ceviche, Jamon Serrano, chorizo and their signature Rey Pollo to start with, along with an alluring array of cocktails, local craft beer selections and well-considered wine list.
To enhance the stay even further guests can book in for the Club InterContinental experience, offering free access to the Club Lounge on the 16th floor. There you’ll enjoy the heights of opulence with daily breakfast, all day refreshments, and a selection of canapes to enjoy with a beverage in the evening, preferably out on the Club Lounge al fresco area.
The hotel has just launched a month-long giveaway that will see one winner and their guest wine and dine at Heno & Rey with a complimentary cocktail, enjoying a stay in one of their sophisticated suites and start the next day with complimentary breakfast.
