ALOFT PERTH 27 Rowe Av­enue, River­vale, WA; aloft­ Ver­dict: A big new ho­tel with mod­ern, youth­ful flour­ishes and a good in-house restaurant. Sur­rounded by lit­tle you’d want to walk to, it fits snugly into the tran­sit­ing, overnight-stay cat­e­gory. Score: ★★★☆☆

We rated: The spa­cious room and huge, glazed win­dows grant­ing 180-de­gree el­e­vated views across as­pects of Perth, plus the bub­bly ser­vice. We’d change: What the near­air­port lo­ca­tion of­fers to short-stay trav­ellers will not serve pedes­trian-ori­ented vis­i­tors want­ing the city on their doorstep. Notes: We opted for a ‘breezy’ room with river views and scored a $209 win­ter spe­cial, which in­cluded a cock­tail at the bar, buffet break­fast and a leisurely 12 noon check-out.
