If you are planning a family-friendly staycation in Perth City then make sure you add Aloft Perth to your shortlist! Part of the Marriott chain and the first Aloft Hotel in Australia, Aloft Perth opened in 2017 and is located a short stroll from the banks of the Swan River in Rivervale.
Families will enjoy making use of the 18 metre heated outdoor splash pool which is connected to the hotel’s W XYZ Bar meaning you can supervise the kids in the pool from the comfort of your sun lounger with one of their signature cocktails in hand. Don’t worry you can work off those cocktails later at the large fully equipped gym located on the mezzanine floor.
W XYZ Bar is located in lobby area and provides a comfortable spot to enjoy an evening drink with live music on weekends.
However, if you wish to enjoy your drink without your children disturbing the other guests you can choose to sit in comfort in the adjoining Re:mix lounge while the kids are occupied with a game of Foosball or ping-pong.
The modern, well-appointed rooms offer families a comfortable base to explore Perth City. We stayed in a twin room which featured two double beds.
Request a room on one of the higher floors, there are 18 in total, and you’ll be greeted with fabulous views of the Swan River or Perth City from the floor to ceiling windows.
The bathroom is sleek and roomy, featuring a rain shower (no bath), ample storage, full-length mirrors and great lighting.
The hotel features art from local artists which extends into the guest rooms. Who needs to go exploring the laneways of Perth City to get an Insta-perfect photo when you can create it in the hallway of your room?
When staying at Aloft Perth make sure you sample the delights on offer at the in house restaurant Springs Kitchen – you won’t be disappointed! Located on the ground floor of the hotel, Springs Kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 6am – 8.30pm each day offering a variety of modern Australian dishes.
We were very impressed with the food! We shared the antipasto platter to start ($24)
For our main course we enjoyed the Slow Cooked Pork Belly ($37) consisting of house pickles, creamed potato, apple chutney, pork crackle dust and the Scotch Fillet ($44) which came with duck fat kipfler potatoes, broccolini & pepper sauce. The food was divine and the service attentive.
Springs Kitchen offers an excellent kids menu with the meals being of high quality and accompanied by a healthy portion of side salad. Miss 9 declared her mash potato the best she had ever eaten!
The kids also indulged in the mini chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream ($8)
Breakfast is served each morning in Springs Kitchen until 11am. During our stay only a la carte breakfast dining was available due to COVID restrictions but there is usually a breakfast buffet on offer too.
You may be lucky enough to find free roadside parking close to the hotel but if security and convenience are high on your list then there is a Wilson car park next to the hotel which offers easy access straight into the hotel lobby. Guests can request a discounted parking ticket upon check-in. Monday – Thursday overnight parking is $15 and Friday – Sunday $10.
Aloft Perth offers the perfect location for a busy family staycation exploring Perth City. Take a stroll along the Swan River and explore the Chevon Parkland Playground, or take a tour of Optus Stadium. If you are a family of daredevils you might even want to try your hand at indoor skydiving at Ifly which located just along the road from the hotel.
