The world’s largest high-rise modular hotel, the ibis Styles East Perth, officially opened today with a ceremonial ribbon cutting led by the Honourable Paul Papalia, Western Australia’s Minister for Tourism and Simon McGrath Chief Operating Officer Accor Pacific.
Accor, the largest operator of hotels and resorts in Australia, together with Rehawk Property Group, teamed up to build the new-build ibis Styles East Perth which spans 18 floors and adds 252 guest rooms to East Perth’s hotel supply - specifically geared towards the economy travel market.
“New, modern hotels such as the ibis Styles East Perth are an important part of Perth’s transformation, which has taken place over the past few years,” said Tourism Minister Mr Papalia who congratulated Accor on the launch of ibis Styles East Perth and thanked the company for its ongoing commitment to Western Australia.
“This hotel is in a great location for visitors, offering easy access to Langley Park with views of the stunning Swan River.
“It is also perfectly situated for people attending events at Optus Stadium and the WACA Ground, including the exciting Men’s and Women’s T20 World Cup International matches next year.”
Accor Pacific’s Chief Operating Officer, Simon McGrath, said, “We are very excited to join with Rehawk Property Group and the Minister to open the new ibis Styles East Perth, and lead the charge on a new generation of design-led economy hotels in Australia, in key locations.
“The past five years has seen the economy accommodation sector shift dramatically, both in terms of product and guest expectations. Quality, comfort, great aesthetics and genuinely warm service. These are all at the top of the wish list for budget-conscious travellers, and what ibis Styles East Perth delivers - at an affordable price.
“Perth has enjoyed a surge of domestic travellers over the past 12 months, which is encouraging, and we’re confident that affordable, fresh hotel product like ibis Styles - alongside Accor’s new Tribe Perth and upcoming Art Series Hotel, The Adnate, will work to continue interest in the city for interstate holidaymakers.”
Accor has a strong foothold in Western Australia, offering 22 hotels and resorts including 14 in Perth and its surrounds. Ibis Styles East Perth is the 29th Ibis Styles hotel in Australia, joining the global Ibis Styles network of more than 260 hotels.
Unusual, delightful yet highly functional, every room in at the ibis Styles East Perth has a uniquely styled entrance, with splashes of vibrancy highlighted throughout the build, complementing the hotel’s fresh, innovative and fun-loving brand. Families will love ibis Styles East Perth’s inter-connecting rooms available with bunk beds - designed with children in mind.
Each room also includes free Wi-Fi, Chrome Cast, USB and HDMI connectivity and USB charging facilities. Co-working spaces at the hotel are available for on-the-go business travellers.
The hotel’s Eastside Social Bar and Restaurant offers a ‘super food’ geared menu, coupled with elegant comfort hotel favourites. Other hotel amenities include a 24-hour state-of-the-art gymnasium, high-tech Urban Offices and an effervescent co-working space for guests and locals.
