Stayed at the Esplanade for two nights on business (fully booked so good thing I made a reservation the month previous). Received a lovely upgrade upon check-in to a room that was huge - patio, large bathroom, and sitting room/lounge with couch and TV. The room appeared to have been renovated and it was comfortable and clean. I must admit, I got lost a couple of times trying to navigate the hallways (my room was tucked away in the back). Not an easy task after a few cocktails. Bring your GPS.
The breakfast buffet was quite average with a few hot items....cold (including the eggs). No restaurant option if you wanted something lighter, like a continental breakfast. I guess that would be in-room dining.
The staff were lovely and friendly.
I found the nightly rate on the high side but the location is good. Fremantle has a good 'walkable' core and I would recommend a visit. About 40 minutes by taxi to the Perth airport.
