SOME of Perth’s most exclusive hotels are offering everything from cheaper rooms to free teddy bears in a bid to attract more guests over winter.
Winter is usually a quiet time for local hotels and the recent arrival of new hotels across Perth has only added to an already competitive market.
Australian Hotels Association (WA) chief executive Bradley Woods said Perth’s hotel market was the most competitive it had been in years.
He said the new hotels and fewer-than-expected interstate and international guests had fuelled competition.
“As a result, there are some real bargains currently being offered,” he said.
COMO The Treasury is offering room-rate discounts of up to 30 per cent for guests who stay for more than one night.
