Singapore-based hotel management and building company Louis T Collection has opened the Quay Perth hotel, a new boutique hotel on the site of the former New Esplanade hotel in Western Australia's capital.

The multimillion-dollar redevelopment is a full renovation of the former hotel, including all guestrooms and public areas, the addition of a sidewalk eatery, a rooftop bar and kitchen, and co-working spaces.

“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, Quay Perth’s hotel management and building solutions company. “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.”

The hotel has 80 guestrooms. Public spaces include a rooftop restaurant, a sidewalk restaurant and the Level Nine 24/7 co-working space. Level Nine includes two meeting rooms, 10 offices, eight window desks and a communal workstation designed as dedicated desks. Private phone booths, printing, scanning and other business services are available. 

The hotel was revamped by interior designer Malvina Stone, architects Nicola Gibson and Daniel Bailey, and Perth-based architectural firm Alda Consultants, led by Andrew Lian. Robert Batrick, director of project services for Louis T Collection, was the lead on the redevelopment project.

The hotel is close to the city’s central business district and overlooks Elizabeth Quay and the Swan River.
