Look to Parmelia Hilton for a luxurious Perth stay

Parmelia Hilton Hotel Entrance

Australia…one of the countries I’ve always wanted to visit, and not only because of the accent but the surroundings, the atmosphere and of course the kangaroos (along with plenty other animals).

When it comes to accommodation in Perth, you’ll want to make sure you’re situated in the right area, with easy access to the local shops, top-notch restaurants and bars, along with the must-see attractions. Parmelia Hilton Perth celebrating its 50th year for the first luxury hotel in Perth is a fantastic choice, especially for those who love luxurious travelling and accommodation.

With 284 guestrooms, including 22 spacious suites,  steaks and seafood at Adelphi Grill along with incredibly tasty breakfast available every morning, a fitness centre and outdoor pool you really can’t go wrong.

Hotel Name: Parmelia Hilton Hotel Perth
Star Rating: ****
Location: 14 MILL STREET, PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, 6000, AUSTRALIA
Rooms:  284 guestrooms, including 22 spacious suites
Top Tip: Consider getting breakfast delivered to the room, it’s well worth it. Also, book your trips with Scott Hulme, the head concierge – you’ll get discounts via booking with Hilton.

With the incredible success, this hotel has had alone, they’re currently opening two more hotels also situated in Perth. DoubleTree by Hilton which is located on the waterfront and will include Panoramic Views of Swan River & City Skyline.

Being a frequent Hilton Hotel guest, I knew what to expect when arriving at the hotel. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and all had smiles on their face happy to help. The check-in was very quick and before I knew it, I was in the beautifully designed lift taking me to the sixth floor, for room 629 – King Hilton Deluxe.

Location

The location of this hotel is perfect. Situated just a 5 minute walk away from Elizabeth Quay on the Swan River, His Majesty’s Theater, top quality restaurants and bars and the Perth Arena complex all within short walking distance, you can’t go wrong. Local transport is available along with Ubers and Taxis, but if I’m honest, you’re able to walk to majority of the attractions. You even have the option to hire bicycles at a nearby shop.

You will require transport to visit the beach, however, that works out cheap when using an Uber or public transport, so not much of a problem.

King Hilton Deluxe

For my visit to Australia, I stayed in the King Hilton Deluxe room at Parmelia Hilton Hotel Perth. The spacious 46 sqm room accommodates up to two people and is a fantastic choice for business travellers, a romantic couples retreat and perfect for luxury solo travellers.

The room had it all, from a super comfy king bed to a stunning large bathroom, seating area and 37-inch TV with complimentary cable channels, you’ll feel like there is nothing else needed to make your stay unforgettable.

The safe was very spacious and suitable to store iPads, Mac’s and many large gadgets. The WiFi was extremely fast and I never had an issue with loading a page on any device.

I’m happy to report the room was very comfortable, clean, beautifully designed and worth looking into if you decide to book a special luxury Australian getaway.
