Crown Perth accommodation
There are two accommodation options at Crown Perth – the Crown Metropol and Crown Promenade. The Metropol is the more upper scale and pricier of the two hotels, offering luxury accommodation in a distinct contemporary style.
Guests can choose to stay in anything from a twin deluxe room to a private infinity pool suite, which is the most opulent accommodation option you’ll find in Perth. There are multiple luxury pools to unwind at between poker games including a large main pool, relaxation pool, family pool with waterslides and many daybeds and cabanas.
The Crown Promenade is more focused towards business travellers, with easy access to the CBD and multiple meeting rooms. It’s also the more budget friendly option for holiday makers with superior twin rooms starting from around $220 per night.
There’s also a third addition to the Crown Perth hotel group, Crown Towers, set to open in 2016. Crown Towers will be Perth’s first six star resort, offering 500 luxury rooms as well as multiple bars, restaurants and convention facilities. The project is estimated to cost around $568 million.
Gambling in Western Australia
Crown Perth is the monopoly casino operator in the state and is the only place you’ll find electronic gaming machines in Perth as WA doesn’t allow pokies to be offered in pubs or clubs. If you’re looking to wager a few dollars outside of the casino, Perth is home to two of Australia’s finest horse racing tracks, Ascot Racecourse and Belmont Park.
Gambling in Western Australia was only legalised in 1974 when the government decided legislation would increase tourism and state revenue while also shutting down illegal casino operations that were being run by criminal groups. The casino industry in WA is now overseen by the Office of Racing, Gaming and Liquor, a group responsible for auditing games for fairness and ensuring responsible gambling practices are in place. Despite the world class casino facilities offered at Crown Perth, WA has the lowest tax dependence on gaming – at only 4%.
