THE Parmelia Hilton Perth will undergo a $45 million refurbishment over the next 10 months.

It will include new bathrooms, air conditioning, flooring, furniture and improved in-room technology in guest rooms and the addition of 25 rooms and suites.

The lobby will be expanded, an executive lounge will be created and a walkway will connect the hotel to the Brookfield Place precinct.

Work is scheduled to start this month and be finished by September.

Parmelia Hilton Perth will remain open and operational throughout the refurbishment.

The hotel was built on the corner of St Georges Terrace and Mill Street in the late 1960s.

It was leased by Hilton in 1979, which kept management of the hotel when Hawaiian bought it in 1993.

Its last major redevelopment was in 1999.

ADCO Constructions has been engaged for the refurbishment.

Hawaiian CEO Russell Gibbs said the significant investment by the group reaffirmed Hawaiian’s commitment to delivering quality experiences to travellers to WA.

“Hotels and resorts are an important part of Hawaiian’s property portfolio, with Parmelia Hilton being the group’s first hospitality acquisition in 1993,” Mr Gibbs said.

“The hotel has been an icon of the Perth CBD for many years and the premier choice for business travellers to Perth due to its CBD location and business-focused amenities.

“The refurbishment will reflect the changing needs of the modern traveller, ensuring the Parmelia Hilton continues to offer visitors to Perth a comfortable and modern hotel in a convenient city location.”

Hilton area general manager WA David Constantine said it was exciting to be refurbishing a hotel that had made a significant contribution to the growth and development of Perth.
