When new hotels open it’s always an exciting time, especially if they’re chain hotels that are opening in a country that lacks hotels. In Australia, we have a lack of chain hotels but that is gradually improving and we will have 10 more Starwood properties that will be opening hopefully by next year but the times aren’t guaranteed.

The latest Starwood property to open in Australia opened in Western Australia at the end of last week. The Aloft Perth is special because it’s also the first ever Aloft brand to open in Australia.
