PERTH Airport has revealed it is on the search for a partner to operate a 250-room hotel to be built next to the new Airport Central station.
The hotel, which will be located within walking distance from the terminals, has been apart of the airport masterplan for years, according to Perth Airport Chief Property Officer Dan Sweet.
“A hotel located within walking distance of terminal infrastructure means that international and interstate visitors have a convenient place to stay as they wait for their regional connection to one of our wonderful tourism destinations,” he said.
“Consolidation will make it easier for all passengers to seamlessly connect between regional, domestic and international destinations.
“The new hotel will be a world-class facility with safe and convenient vehicle access and will offer a mix of around 250 rooms and suites.”
CBRE is assisting the airport to find an operator for the hotel, while DKO has been chosen as the architect.
“Our design will reflect Western Australia’s unique beauty with materials and forms inspired by its landscapes, providing a memorable and warm welcome to visitors from all over the world,” DKO Perth Studio Director Dennis Chew said.
