We have stayed at the Crown Metropol Perth (formerly Intercontinental Burswood) on many occasions. This time around we booked a king luxe view room interconnecting with a twin luxe view room (for our two kids). This gave us the extra space we really needed given our children are getting that little bit older. Our rooms had views reaching over the Swan River to the city skyline and also across the swimming pools.
The rooms are beautifully appointed with everything you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. The bathrooms are luxurious featuring a bath and separate full shower (with hand held shower head and rain shower head).
Check in process was adequate (although quite a bit slower than most), however there was no bellboy available to help me with the luggage and given I had travelled alone with the kids I really needed the assistance. It took about 10 minutes for someone to come and help with the bags once the valet took our vehicle.
We ate breakfast in the Atrium buffet every morning - it has so many options, but I must say I did prefer it when the Intercontinental ran the restaurant (more options, including fresh juices). It felt as though everything had been parred back a little bit from our last stay. Good news was they were running a special promotion where kids ate free (one child per paying adult).
The pool area is absolutely gorgeous. Multiple areas in which to lounge and relax plus a special area for the kids complete with two slides. We hired one of the day beds in front of the slides ($50 per day) so we could relax and enjoy the experience without the risk of sunburn.
Would have loved to try the new spa but it's excessively expensive! I'll wait until I get home and go to my usual day spa. The addition of the new indoor kids' zone is a welcome addition.
Overall, a great stay, a lovely hotel. You won't be disappointed.
