For dining, the property has Wildflower on the hotel’s rooftop, offering views across the Swan River; and Post on the ground floor.

The hotel is on Cathedral Avenue in Perth’s Central Business District. This revamped heritage site contains a group of buildings — known locally as the State Buildings — that played roles in the city’s history for the past 140 years, serving as town hall, post office, land-titles office, and treasury. Before construction began in 2012, the buildings sat unused for nearly 20 years.
Ninety-five percent of the original heritage building was returned to its 19th-century origins, including re-installed dormer windows, rooftop copper trimmings and a stripped back façade showing off the original surface.
