The new Novotel Perth Murray Street has officially opened its doors.
The hotel opening commenced with a traditional indigenous smoking ceremony, didgeridoo performance and Welcome to Country by local Whadjuk Elder Uncle Ben Taylor, followed by an official ribbon-cutting by Fragrance Group CEO James Koh, Accor Asia-Pacific chairman and CEO Michael Issenberg, and Accor Pacific chief operating officer Simon McGrath.
With a central location on bustling Murray St, right next to Shafto Lane’s buzzy restaurants and bars, the Novotel features one of Perth’s best fitness and spa facilities including a state-of-the-art gym, pool, steam room and sauna. There will also be four meeting rooms and a conference room for up to 120 people.
As the hotel’s own restaurants and bars are not yet open, guests will be able to take advantage of several Accor dining outlets nearby including Hyde Kitchen + Cocktails at the Art Series Adnate hotel; Peppers Kings Square; Mantra on Murray; and ibis Perth’s Rubix Bar and Murray St Grill – all of which are just a short stroll away.
“Novotel Perth Murray Street will set new benchmarks for the brand in Australia and we are excited to give visitors and locals a taste of what is to come by opening part of the hotel today,” Issenberg said.
“We are confident the hotel will be a huge success as tourism to Perth continues to grow.”
Koh said: “We are very pleased to deliver such a quality hotel to the city of Perth, and we can’t wait to see the reactions of our first guests.
“This is our second hotel with Accor in Australia and we are proud to support tourism infrastructure growth in the country.”
