According to the firm, The Westin Perth Hotel was the largest single hotel asset transaction in Australia last year, and also the largest ever hotel transaction in Perth.

For lead partner Roy Melick, “the logistics of running two significant deals at the same time involving two hotels together with an office building and a retail food precinct was challenging but very interesting”.
