Perth's Murdoch precinct to gain an international hotel

The fast-expanding Murdoch Health and Knowledge precinct in Perth will be home to a new-build Courtyard by Marriott hotel.

Marriott International has signed an agreement with local developers Hesperia to introduce the Courtyard by Marriott brand to one of Western Australia’s fastest growing commercial and residential catchments.

"We are thrilled to be working with Hesperia to bring the Courtyard by Marriott brand to Perth," said Richard Crawford, vice president for hotel development, Australia, New Zealand, and Pacific.

"Murdoch is a large-scale health and knowledge precinct and the signing of Courtyard by Marriott Perth, Murdoch further underscores Marriott International's continued effort in expanding into urban growth corridors outside of Australia's capital cities."

Located 10 minutes from Perth CBD and 25 minutes from Perth Airport, Courtyard by Marriott Perth Murdoch will offer proximity to existing institutional and corporate demand generators including Western Australia's largest tertiary hospitals, Murdoch University, the South Metro TAFE Campus and one of Perth's fastest growing districts.

"With two Courtyard by Marriott hotels already open in Australia, and five more in our pipeline, it is very satisfying to see the Courtyard brand gaining such momentum here," Crawford said.

Hesperia director Kyle Jeavons said the hotel will be a perfect alignment with the precinct.

"The Courtyard by Marriott will deliver an inviting experience that is suitable for the precinct and the broad range of users it will attract," Jeavons said. 

"When selecting the right mix of partners for a complex mixed-use project such as this, it is essential to align with groups that share our philosophy in customer service and hospitality and we're pleased to be bringing the Courtyard by Marriott brand to Perth."

The hotel is slated to feature 150 guest rooms, feature an all-day dining restaurant with a semi-open kitchen concept, a café and bar. Additional plans call for a well-equipped fitness centre and one meeting room, which will be equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and wireless internet.

Marriott International currently operates 35 hotels across Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific, with 26 hotels in Australia, and several expected to open by the end of 2021, including Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands and The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart.
