Perth welcomes Pan Pacific Hotel

Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts is a leading brand in Asia and the Pacific Rim and is part of the Pan Pacific Hotels Group, which has its headquarters in Singapore.

The group has just opened the Pan Pacific Perth in Western Australia’s capital, which is the first of the hotels of that brand to open in Australia.

Occupying the same building as the Sheraton Hotel, which no longer has a presence in Perth, the new hotel was officially opened by the Deputy Premier of Western Australia Dr. Kim Hames, who revealed that the hotel had special memories for him as he had spent his honeymoon night there.

The 486-room hotel, which is situated in the Central Business District, hopes to inject some much-needed revitalisation of the Perth hospitality industry.  The Pan Pacific Perth has great views of Perth and its majestic Swan River.

General Manager Grant Raubenheimer revealed at the official opening that the transformation from Sheraton to Pan Pacific had gone very smoothly, and that many of the Sheraton’s long term staff members had stayed on to become part of the new brand.

Although the Pan Pacific is the first of that name to open in Australia, the Pan Pacific Group has already opened two of its Parkroyal branded properties is Sydney.  One at Sydney’s Darling Harbour and the other at Parramatta, which is a significant business and retail centre just west of Sydney and is part of the Sydney Metropolitan Area.

Already refurbishment has started in the Pan Pacific’s ballroom and function area.  The Pan Pacific will also have floors devoted to its Pacific Club members, for which they can enjoy exclusive privileges and benefits such as complimentary daily breakfast, evening cocktails and canapés, all day refreshments, priority check-in and check-out, complimentary internet access and pressing services.

The Sheraton had a long and illustrious history in Perth, and if the Pan Pacific Perth can replicate some of the former hotel’s golden years then it will indeed become a popular focus for visitors and Perth residents alike.
