Bottom Line

The 236-unit Fraser Suites Perth is an upscale property situated on the edge of Perth's Central Business District and overlooking the Swan River. Although it's a bit removed from the center of town, it's within walking distance of a supermarket, restaurants, the river, the Perth Mint, and the Queens Gardens. Suites are modern and sophisticated, and all have kitchenettes plus free Wi-Fi. Some have one or two bedrooms. The restaurant is highly regarded for its fresh, seasonal fare, and the lobby lounge is a hip place for drinks and light fare. The heated indoor pool is lovely for a swim, and the fitness center has a wide array of modern equipment. It can be pricey, so travelers looking for less expensive apartment-style rooms might consider Verandah Apartments Perth.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Modern, sophisticated long-stay property suitable for business and leisure guests

Fraser Suites offers sleek, elegant decor throughout, starting with the entrance, where lush plants, a modern sculpture, and a water feature set the tone for what's to come inside. The large, airy lobby is a striking space, with floor-to-ceiling windows, oversized modern light fixtures, and plush carpeting atop gleaming tile flooring. Sofas and chairs provide places where guests can gather for social or business chats, and there's an adjacent lounge for drinks and snacks. The property is ideally suited for business guests who need to stay in town for a while, though it also draws athletes, musicians, politicians, and TV celebrities. It doesn't quite hit the luxury mark, though, with its lack of butlers, slightly tired bathrooms, and missing spa, but the level of polish here is high. The property is also suitable for families, couples, and groups looking for a spacious place with extras such as kitchenettes and en-suite laundry facilities.  

Location

On the edge of Central Business District, close to the river and Queens Gardens

This hotel is situated on the edge of the Central Business District in East Perth, overlooking the Swan River. A supermarket is within a short walk of the hotel, as is a spa (next door), restaurants, the Queens Gardens, and the Perth Mint. Kings Park and Botanic Garden is a seven-minute drive from the hotel, or about 15 minutes by public transportation, and the Crown Entertainment Complex, with a casino, is about a six-minute drive, or 12 minutes by public transportation. Free bus service is provided within the Central Business District. The Perth City Train Station is about a 10-minute drive from the hotel, and the East Perth Train Station is about eight minutes away by car. Plan on 20 minutes to reach Perth Airport by car, or 45 minutes by public transportation. 

Rooms

Studios and one- or two-bedroom suites with kitchenettes, some with balconies and river views

Suites are available as studios, or with one or two bedrooms. All have kitchenettes, some with dishwashers, and many have washers and dryers. Decor is elegant and classic contemporary, with modern dark wood furniture, touches of velvet, and supple leather details. Color schemes are sophisticated shades of black, taupe, and gray, accented by understated abstract artwork. All suites are equipped with 40-inch flat-screen TVs, Sealy mattresses, air-conditioning, electric kettles, digital music players, work desks, and minibars. Wi-Fi is free, but we'd have loved to see proper espresso machines or maybe even butler service for this hotel to live up to its luxury claims. The one- and two-bedroom units have nice separate sitting areas and dining areas. Modern bathrooms feature tiled shower/tub combos or separate tubs and showers, plus L'Occitane toiletries, hairdryers, and scales. They're a little dated looking. Robes and slippers are provided. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out to the Swan River, the city, or cricket grounds and the Queens Gardens. Some units have furnished balconies -- views can be spectacular. 

Features

Restaurant, lounge, indoor pool with sauna, fitness center, events spaces, and free Wi-Fi

This hotel offers a full array of features. Heirloom restaurant serves all meals with a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients. For breakfast, guests can select from the buffet or order a la carte, though basic rates don't include it. The space is chic and sophisticated, with leather-covered chairs and large red lighting fixtures that set a dramatic mood. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the street, and there are a few tables outside for alfresco dining. There's also a lounge in the lobby open all day for light fare and drinks, and room service is available 24/7. 

The heated indoor pool is long enough for swimming laps, and there's a whirlpool next to it. Cushioned lounge chairs are lined up along one side, and floor-to-ceiling windows behind them provide natural light. Potted palm trees add a bit of ambiance. Towels are provided. The adjacent fitness center is spacious and modern, with cardio and weight training equipment, plus free weights and exercise balls. Large windows allow in plenty of natural light, and water and towels are provided. There's also a sauna.

The hotel's conference space consists of a boardroom and four meeting rooms, plus outdoor space. Rooms can be combined to create a ballroom that can accommodate up to 300 people. Support services are available, and Wi-Fi is free throughout the property. A computer is set up in the lobby for guests to use. On-site parking is available for a fee, but spaces are limited.
