COMO The Treasury is not just a boutique hotel but a showcase for the finest Western Australian food and wine. The hotel is housed in Perth’s 140-year-old State Buildings on the corner of St George's Terrace and Barrack Street.
One of the most significant heritage precincts in Western Australia, this property was recently refurnished by leading architect Kerry Hill and is only a short walk from the new Elizabeth Quay riverfront development.
There are 48 spacious guest rooms and suites that feature the original high ceilings and cornicing, but sleek, contemporary design, a refined, understated air, and in some, private balconies.
Both the hotel’s own Wildflower restaurant on the top floor, which boasts panoramic city views, and Long Chim, the latest David Thompson Asian concept restaurant in a courtyard basement, are extremely popular and reservations are essential well in advance. A craft beer bar, lounge and library provide a social hub for city workers as well as for guests.
The hotel’s Shambhala spa has earnt a state-wide reputation for the quality of its treatments, while there is a glass-enclosed swimming pool and large gymnasium on the top floor.
Crisp whites, pale woods and large windows that bathe the rooms in light give the deceptively simple rooms at COMO The Treasury a very serene character. Due to the historic nature of the building, all the rooms are slightly different but surprisingly spacious. Each has high ceilings and original detailing, woven carpets, and heated, travertine floors in the large bathrooms with their freestanding bathtubs. Wi-Fi is complimentary, as is the minibar which is stocked with local draft beers and soft drinks.
Set in the heart of Perth in the city’s rejuvenated historic quarter, COMO The Treasury offers easy access to the city sights, shopping, restaurants and bars. The hotel is a couple of minutes’ walk from the central train station, five minutes’ walk from Elizabeth Quay, and ten minutes on foot from the Art Gallery of Western Australia. Cottesloe Beach is a 20-minute drive away.
Food and Drink
Buffet and à la carte breakfasts are served in the Post restaurant which functions as a casual, osteria later in the day with classic Italian dishes, and a selection of organic, health-conscious choices from the COMO Shambhala Cuisine menu. Wildflower is a more formal, fine-dining option serving a modern Australian menu that revolves around the best Western Australian produce. It’s set on the 4th floor and offers sweeping city views. The intimate Treasury Lounge and Bar serves a classic afternoon tea, while the basement Long Chim Perth is a buzzing Thai restaurant serving classic street food to convivial crowds.
