Perth has been crowned with its first and only Forbes Five Star hotel…

Forbes Travel Guide is the originator of the prestigious Five-Star Rating system and has provided the travel industry’s most comprehensive ratings and reviews of hotels, restaurants and spas since 1958. Forbes Travel Guide has a team of expert inspectors who anonymously evaluate properties based on 900 rigorous and objective standards across 50 countries. Forbes Travel Guide is the most prestigious standard for luxury hospitality worldwide. 

In February 2020 Crown Towers Perth was awarded a global gold standard by becoming Western Australia’s first and only Forbes Five-Star hotel in history.

As one of only three Australian hotels to have achieved the coveted award, this latest accolade reinforces Crown Towers as one of the leading premium brands and one of Australia’s most prestigious destinations in luxury accommodation. The award distinguishes those who achieve the Five-Star rating as ‘outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities’.

Executive General Manager for Crown Perth Hotels, Andrew Cairns says he is delighted to see the hotel recognised by the global authority in luxury hospitality.

“We are honoured to see Crown Towers Perth awarded the first Forbes Five-Star Rating in Western Australia. The award is a credit to our incredible facilities, but more importantly our staff who continue to create incredible memories for our guests through attention to detail in everything they do. As a team, we love pushing the limits to deliver exceptional service at Crown Towers Perth and this award recognises the work that goes into creating a luxurious experience that is well and truly above all else for our guests. This award not only showcases Crown Towers among the world’s greatest resorts, but it also puts our State on the map as a unique luxury destination for global and local travellers alike,” says Cairns.

Last year alone Crown Perth attracted over 10 million visitors to its Perth complex.

After opening three years ago, Crown Towers Perth has set a new benchmark in the state for luxury accommodation, which has enabled it to maintain occupancy rates well above the state benchmark due to its world-class service and facilities.

Tourism Minister Paul Papalia commended Crown Towers Perth for being the first hotel in the State to achieve this prestigious honour.

“This five star rating highlights the top-quality experience that is on offer to the hotel’s visitors and will help promote Perth nationally and internationally as a must-visit destination,” he said.

“Overlooking the magnificent Swan River, with views of Optus Stadium and the city skyline, this hotel showcases some of the stunning scenery Perth is known for. This win also shines a light on Perth’s transformation; we offer visitors a range of new accommodation options as well as restaurants, bars, cafes and exciting event and entertainment experiences.” 

A Crown Towers hotel is unparalleled in every way, and over the last two decades has become renowned for its superior service and guest experience, as well as its extraordinary design which has resulted in both properties achieving what is widely regarded as the highest accolade in luxury accommodation. The industry is keenly awaiting the launch of its first Sydney property at Barangaroo, due to open later this year.
