Holiday Inn West Perth set to join IHG’s rapidly-growing Australian network

by James Wilkinson

IHG Hotels and Resorts has signed a deal to convert the Sage Hotel West Perth to a Holiday Inn, with the property set to join the global chain’s network on November 1, 2021.

IHG Director of Development for Australasia & Pacific, Jael Fischer, said with West Perth fast becoming a vibrant, bustling hub, just out of Perth’s CBD, the hotel promises to take advantage of its locale and deliver on a warm and welcoming experience for guests staying for business or pleasure.

“With construction beginning on the new parliamentary precinct in West Perth and with many businesses and retail along busy Hay and Collins Street, there is a hive of activity in the area which Holiday Inn will be able to capitalise on,” she said.

“Given the hotel’s prime location, close to Kings Park, one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner-city parks, Holiday Inn West Perth will be warmly embraced by IHG Rewards loyalty members. We look forward to welcoming guests from November 1 .”

Located within walking distance to Kings Park and the Botanical Gardens, Holiday Inn West Perth will be IHG’s first Perth property outside of the city centre, and will perfectly complement its CBD hotels including InterContinental Perth City Centre, Crowne Plaza Perth and Holiday Inn Perth City Centre.

Fischer said part of the hotel’s charm is the former 1902 Walsh Family residence which sits at the front of the property and a destination restaurant is slated to be a hallmark of Holiday Inn West Perth, as will the two character-filled boardrooms that currently occupy the space.

When the hotel opens under the Holiday Inn banner in November, she said all 101 guestrooms will receive a soft refurbishment to bring it in line with Holiday Inn’s standard and the lobby will also be transformed.

Holiday Inn West Perth will join the 42 open or pipeline Holiday Inn brand family hotels in Australasia & Pacific and more than 4,100 across the globe.
