I found an article dated 1/3/17 that mentioned 6 new Hiltons being planned for Australia, but no mention of time frame or location. Not sure if the 2 DTs in WA are included but would think so. Does anyone know where they may be going.

Strong rumour has it a Conrad is next for Melbourne.

If right it must be a ways off - I've done a pretty good search of Hilton, conrad and doubletree looking for 'upcoming' hotels, normally new hotels or developments are advertised on the mother website at least a year out, sometimes 18 months or so - for Australia, there is nothing on any of the sites for _any_ developments whatsoever.

This, despite:

Hilton Worldwide Announces Third Perth DoubleTree by Hilton to Open in Partnership with SKS Group| Hilton Global Media Center

&

DoubleTree by Hilton, Perth Waterfront - SKS Group


So the 'newsroom' is making news and the actual building developer is making noise - yet the management side of DT, HH, Conrad aren't saying anything ... anyone have an idea of what that might mean? Maybe theres a real life difference between developing a property and actually opening the doors as a proper working hotel????

Slightly OT, but I was trying to find out about the DT Northbridge also. I saw it under construction towards the end of 2015. But nothing out there about opening date. I was over in Perth last week but didn't get a chance to wander by.

Any Perth locals been by there recently?

Last I heard, it was looking like opening early 2018.

(Plenty of hotels across all chains get announced that never seem to see the light of day)

Trolling the net is bringing up some malarkey about 'council' related issues with the construction and its now apparently delayed until at least 2019.

Don't hold you breath coolumbla - they never like admitting that they are losing properties to manage (it's not good for business). Similar with delays (DT Perth for example). The silence is deafening
I walked past the DT Perth site a couple of weeks ago. A long way to go but it wasn't obvious if there was current activity or the whole project had stalled. A real shame as I'm looking for something different to the CP.
