Fodor's Expert Review Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough

The Esplanade, Perth, Western Australia, 6019, Australia

If all you want to do is swim and surf, and a 20-minute drive into the city doesn't bother you, this multistory beach-front hotel may be the ticket. Gazing at the Indian Ocean, most rooms have views and private balconies and are decorated in contemporary styles. The top three floors get access to the Plaza Club Lounge, with complimentary canapés and drinks at sunset. Straits Cafe ($$) serves buffet breakfast for guests only, while dinner and lunch is à la carte. Stay cool in the lagoon-style heated pool, or work up a sweat in the fitness center—on the floodlighted tennis courts or in the steam room. An infrequent shuttle-bus service operates to the city center (20 minutes), as well as Karrinyup and Innaloo shopping centers.
