World’s second-best hotel is right on your doorstep

PERTH’S COMO the Treasury has just been named the world’s second-best hotel, in Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

Housed in the city’s 140-year-old State Buildings, it’s part of a $580 million redevelopment.

There are 48 elegant guest rooms and suites with original features, as well as two restaurants, a bar, a lounge and a library. Rooms start from $595 per night, including breakfast.

“Perth may not have as much clout as Sydney or Melbourne, but this sleek COMO outpost — the brand’s first hotel Down Under — might just help set a change in motion,” Traveler said.

“Jed Gerrard’s Wildflower, the hotel’s glassed-in rooftop restaurant, offers more than just an impressive experience — when you taste the kangaroo, delicately smoked over jarrah ambers and served with grilled blueberry dressing, you’ll get what we mean.”

Facilities also include a gym, 20m indoor pool, and a range of holistic therapies.

The Treasury was only outranked by Ballyfin, a stately Georgian home north of Dublin. Hotel Matilda in Mexico, Umaid Bhawan Palace in India, and Summer Lodge Country House Hotel in England rounded out the top five.

No other Australian hotels featured on the list.
