REVIEW: Aloft Hotel Perth

Perth has changed a lot in the last few years, with several new hotels popping up. Aloft Perth is part of the SPG group and sits under the W brand, it opened in May 2017 and is located just up the road from Crown Casino.

The Room

We were staying in a standard room and overall I was impressed with the room. It was situated on the corner of the building with floor to ceiling windows on two sides of the room.

The standard room had a small entry passageway leading to the main room area with a bathroom off to the side.



Overall the room was a great size for a non-suite





I liked the layout with a sofa and table rather than a desk, it made for a nice spot to relax.


The bathroom was huge in the scheme of hotel bathrooms although only had a shower and not a bath.


Hotel Facilities

The lobby of the hotel was spacious with a bar off to one side and restaurant off to the other. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to sample the restaurant whilst staying here, but the menu looked good.



Rather than having a mini bar in the rooms, Aloft had an interesting system with a takeaway area in the hotel lobby with drinks and snacks that you could purchase and take back to your room


The bar was great with plenty of seating as well as powerpoints and table available if you wanted to plug in and get some work done while grabbing a drink


Behind the bar area were a sort of chill-out area with ping-pong, foosball and lounge seating.





Overall impression

Overall I was impressed with Aloft, it had great facilities and was well laid out. I would stay there again if visiting Perth. The only downside was the location, whilst close to the casino it was a $25 cab ride into the CBD.



I have always had a love of travel, I believe that we work hard so that we can enjoy the precious time off we have for holidays and so it is important to make the most of them.
