Australasia has welcomed its first Hilton Garden Inn hotel, with a property located in Western Australia’s Albany.

The newly developed Hilton Garden Inn Albany occupies five storeys and overlooks Albany Waterfront Marina. It is located next to the Albany Entertainment Centre, and within walking distance of the city centre.

Albany’s bus station is also nearby, which connects travellers to destinations throughout Western Australia such as Perth, and the hotel is located a 20-minute drive from Albany airport.

The hotel offers 108 rooms including six deluxe rooms with panoramic ocean views. Rooms include Suite Dreams by Serta beds, complimentary wifi, a 55-inch HD TV and a work desk with an ergonomic chair. The hotel also has a 24-hour fitness centre and self-service laundry.

Dining venues include a ground floor restaurant with an open kitchen, which offers a hot buffet breakfast and dinner daily; a ground floor bar offering bites, handcrafted cocktails, locally sourced craft beers and Western Australian wines; and a 24-hour shop with a grab-and-go menu.

There is 160 sqm of events space and three separate meeting rooms, which can also be used as one space, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the grassed frontage and waterfront.

To celebrate the hotel’s opening, Hilton Honors members will earn an additional 1,000 points per night for bookings on Sunday to Thursday until May 2, 2022.

Heidi Kunkel, vice president, operations, Australasia, Hilton, commented:

“We are thrilled to partner with Foreshore Management to open our first Hilton Garden Inn in Australasia in the thriving regional cultural, commercial and coastal hub of Albany, Western Australia.

“The hotel marks Hilton’s fourth hotel in the state and joins sister properties Hilton Parmelia Perth, DoubleTree by Hilton Perth Northbridge and DoubleTree by Hilton Perth Waterfront.  Its opening demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the state and our first foray into regional Western Australia. We look forward to further growing the Hilton Garden Inn brand in regional centres, as this hotel will be joined by Hilton Garden Inn Busselton in 2023.”

The hotel is owned by Foreshore Management and managed by Hilton.

Hilton Garden Inn has 50 operating hotels and 110 properties in the pipeline in the Asia Pacific region. The group recently confirmed plans to debut the brand in Sydney in 2023:
