The choice of hotels for a business trip to Perth is huge. This guide gives you a quick way to create a shortlist, by focusing on the key points about each one.
Location is usually the top priority, closely followed by services and facilities. All of these hotels offer business travellers the comfort they need, flexible dining options, a space to work and free wifi. The serviced apart'hotels all have kitchen facilities. It then comes down to whether you're looking for a bolthole for one or a corporate hotel for a Perth based conference.
Lastly, many business travellers want a hotel that gives them more than a place to stay and work. The style of the accommodation and ways to relax during downtime are important too.
Our guide begins with two Perth CBD hotels ideal for business trips that have opened in the last two years. The rest are divided into hotels with a unique style, serviced apartments for those wanting more space and independence, and the classics that many return to for reliability and familiarity.
