Perth has a chic new waterside hotel

Perth has a new hotel with the opening this week of the Quay Perth by Singapore-based hotel management and building solutions company Louis T Collection.



Quay Perth is a new 80-room boutique hotel on the site of the former New Esplanade hotel and the newest addition to the Elizabeth Quay development.

The latest hotel to join Louis T Collection’s hotel portfolio is steps away from the city’s central business district and overlooks Elizabeth Quay and the Swan River. 


Quay Perth’s multi-million-dollar redevelopment is a top-to-bottom transformation of the former hotel, which includes all guest rooms and public areas, the addition of an all-day sidewalk eatery, rooftop bar and kitchen, and co-working spaces with views of Elizabeth Quay and the Swan River.

“We believe Quay Perth will play an important role in the lifestyle of this exciting city,” said Adam Simkins, managing director of Louis T Collection. 

“Our intent was to create a hotel with an independent, boutique character that would capture the essence of the city in a new space designed for co-living, co-working and co-playing.”

Quay Perth has an earthy colour palette that uses natural local materials, such as Victorian ash wood. 

The design was a collaboration between industry-leading architects and designers including renowned Western Australian residential interior designer Malvina Stone, architects Nicola Gibson and Daniel Bailey, and Perth-based architectural firm Alda Consultants. 

The original building has been stripped back to its bare bones, allowing the designers to create a space that is described as "modern, stylish, and distinctly Australian".


“We wanted to honour the original building as best as we could whilst pushing the boundaries in terms of style and design,” said Stone.

Bedrooms feature coffee and tea facilities, in-room safes, Smart TVs, bar fridge and complimentary wifi. 

Each room has a queen- or king-size bed, with twin beds optional in studio rooms. 

Quay Perth’s top floor is home to HQ Bar & Kitchen, with a modern Chinese-inspired menu while Community at Quay connects the riverfront Esplanade and its century-old Plane trees with the hotel’s lobby.
