The hotel underwent an extensive multi-million dollar refurbishment which reached completion in 2012, presenting a modernised five-star luxury property to the marketplace.

The aim of the refurbishment was to redefine the hotel resort experience in WA and set a new benchmark for true five-star international luxury in Perth, and the project involved the complete redesign of all guest rooms and floor foyers, reception, pool area and day spa.

Crown Perth Chief Operating Officer – Hotels and Entertainment Andrew Hill said, “Crown Metropol Perth is tremendously proud to be officially recognised as an accommodation leader on this national platform. The 2014 AHA National Awards for Excellence are fantastic accolades and Crown congratulates the entire team for their ongoing commitment and efforts which have resulted in this important acknowledgement and put the spotlight on tourism in WA.”

Crown Perth announces Croupiers and Inspector of the Year! - 13 August 2014
The very best of Crown Perth’s Croupiers and Inspectors were honoured at a prestigious Awards Ceremony at Eve nightclub last night. 
Show Details

Wednesday, 13 August 2014- The very best of Crown Perth’s Croupiers and Inspectors were honoured at a prestigious Awards Ceremony at Eve nightclub last night, with MC Tod Johnston announcing this year’s winners of the annual Crown Perth Croupier and Inspector Championships.

At Crown’s very own version of the Oscars, the Croupiers and Inspectors swapped their uniforms for a red-carpet style night of glitz and glamour to recognise and celebrate the talent within the team.

The finalists were selected from hundreds of competitors, and last month faced off in a series of challenge events where technical ability, customer service, communication and style were judged.

Being a Croupier is no easy task and with the calibre of competition this year, being a judge proved to be even tougher, with an outstanding display of ability and technique amongst the finalists.

After an excellent effort by all, Sam Leyton and Claudia Corinaldesi took out the title of Crown Perth Croupiers of The Year 2014 – congratulations ladies! Both our Croupier champions have been invited to compete in the Annual Australasian Croupier Championships to be held in Queensland next month. The lucky winners will enjoy an all expenses paid trip to the Gold Coast to represent Crown Perth and showcase their skills.

Three individual winners were also honoured for their technical skills in Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat. Congratulations to the winner for Blackjack, Travis Arnold, for Baccarat, Jonathon Tran and for Roulette, Darcy Glynn.

An award for the top Crown Perth Inspector was also presented on the night. This award is judged on gaming knowledge, customer service, communication, coaching, development and the ability to work well under pressure – all qualities demonstrated by Eamonn Gray, Crown Perth Inspector of The Year 2014.

Crown Perth Chief Operating Officer Lonnie Bossi acknowledged the commitment of the Croupiers and Inspectors in the lead up to the championships and all year round.

“The Crown Perth Croupier and Inspector Championships is the pinnacle of the year for Table Games staff and it’s a fantastic opportunity to recognise and reward our staff for their hard work and dedication over the past year. We are very proud of the talent within our Croupier and Inspector team and the high standard of skills displayed at this event is testament to the support network and training provided.

Congratulations to all the deserving winners and we wish Sam and Claudia the best of luck as they travel to Queensland next month to represent Crown Perth at the Australasian Championships,” said Mr Bossi.

Crown resorts foundation announces $1 million donation to help bring ‘the giants’ to Perth - 24 July 2014
The Premier, Colin Barnett, announced today that French street theatre company Royal De Luxe will bring ‘The Giants’ to Perth. 
Show Details

Perth, Australia. Thursday 24 July 2014 - The Premier, Colin Barnett, announced today that French street theatre company Royal De Luxe will bring ‘The Giants’ to Perth for the 2015 Perth International Arts Festival made possible by the collaboration of Crown Resorts Foundation and the State Government. The first of its WA arts donations, Crown Resorts Foundation will ensure that the story of the Breaksea Island Lighthouse and Fay Howe will be recreated to ignite the imaginations of young and old during Perth Festival 2015, which at one stage was in doubt due to a lack of funding.

Barry Felstead, CEO Crown Resorts said:

“I am delighted that Crown Resorts Foundation has chosen this project as its first WA arts partnership. The spectacle that is The Giants needed additional vital funding in order to secure its inclusion in the Perth Festival program and we are extremely excited that Crown’s newly announced National Philanthropic Fund has been able to help secure the event.”

The $200 million National Philanthropic Fund will be administered jointly by the Crown Resorts Foundation Board, chaired by The Hon. Helen Coonan, and the Packer Family Foundation Board, chaired by Ms Gretel Packer. Both Boards offer extensive philanthropic experience with other members including Mrs Roslyn Packer AO, Mr Harold Mitchell AC and Mrs Lucy Turnbull AO.

The Crown Resorts Foundation Board is further supported by an Advisory Board which provides recommendations on the merits of eligible projects.
