In its first 12 months of operation, Crown Towers has won over 10 awards at several of Australia’s best hospitality and tourism awards.According to executive general manager Crown Perth Hotels, Andrew Cairns, the installation was a fun, quirky way to bring to life what sets Crown Towers apart as a hotel brand – its unparalleled luxury and experiences.“Crown Towers is known the world over as the pinnacle of luxury. We’ve had a great first year here in Perth and have been amazed at how much the city has embraced and fallen in love with it,” Cairns said. “Crown Towers Perth has truly redefined the standard for high-end accommodation in market and what better way to celebrate that than by bringing to life some of those experiences in a fun way.”Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more
