InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has signed a management agreement with UNIR Hotels Pty Ltd. After 18 years of successful management, UNIR Hotels have decided to redevelop the Rydges Hotel for conversion into a luxurious 240-room InterContinental hotel in the capital city of the Western Australian state, following a comprehensive luxury refurbishment.
When the new hotel commences operations in early 2017, InterContinental Perth will be the sixth InterContinental property in Australia, bringing the brand's renowned luxury experience to another key Australian city. Situated in a prime location in Perth’s Central Business District, the hotel will be nestled amongst the city’s top business and leisure facilities, including Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre, His Majesty’s Theatre, an abundance of boutique shops and the city’s eclectic and vibrant dining scene.
Reflecting the timeless, contemporary style of InterContinental hotels and resorts worldwide, InterContinental Perth will embody a combination of residential luxury and business efficiency. As a hotel at the heart of the CBD, InterContinental Perth will feature executive function spaces, including a boardroom and a number of intimate meeting rooms. There will be a business centre for guests who require access to business facilities on the go; otherwise in-room technology and high-speed internet access throughout the hotel will give guests the option to work in the privacy of their room, or over a glass of wine in the Club Lounge.
To add to the thriving F&B scene, a bar-and-restaurant concept will be developed. It will pay homage to the great food and beverage options in Western Australia and be appropriate for InterContinental’s international clientele.
