REVIEW: DoubleTree Northbridge Perth City, Twin Guest Room

Perth, as the only major city on the western shores of Australia, suffer more so given it’s relatively low population base. Hotels in Perth are pretty sparse, with many of the bigger names, including Crowne Plaza and Hilton, built more than two decades ago and hardly refurbished. As such, it was pretty refreshing to see a new infusion of hotels into the city, including DoubleTree by Hilton and Westin as part of Tourism Western Australia’s push to revitalise the state as a preferred destination. The hotel I stayed in this time round is the DoubleTree Northbridge in Perth. Those familiar with the DoubleTree brand will know it’s by Hilton and have been popping up rapidly around the world in the last half decade or so.

At the time of the opening, the DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok was touted as Hilton’s 100th property in Asia Pacific, as well as the first DoubleTree by Hilton property in Bangkok. The hotel is a 7-minute walk from Phrom Phong BTS station, and that also means a short walk from EmQuartier and the Emporium.
