Australia: Quest Apartment Hotels has opened its latest property, Quest St Kilda Road, weeks before the start of the Australian Grand Prix which takes place in Melbourne.

The property was developed by EBG Development and features 104 serviced apartments including studio, one- and two-bedroom units. The site forms part of the New Charsfield development, a mixed-use development integrating the heritage listed Charsfield Mansion in its foreground.

Located between Commercial and Toorak roads, the aparthotel is close to Albert Park Lake and provides easy access to Melbourne's central business district and the bay-side suburb of St Kilda.

Quest Apartment Hotels
general manager for growth, James Shields, said: "St Kilda Road is a key thoroughfare into Melbourne's Central Business District and hosts many major corporate and government headquarters. We believe the Melbourne Metro project will provide a further catalyst for the corridor, connecting businesses with the CBD through improved public transport accessibility. In addition, the amenities provided by Royal Botanical Gardens, Albert Park and Melbourne's world-class arts precinct will be greatly enjoyed by business travellers, families and larger groups alike. We are certainly happy to open Quest St Kilda Road in time for one of Australia's premier sporting events."

Catherine Mapperson, who started her career as a receptionist at Quest South Yarra Mews, was appointed franchisee by the aparthotel operator. Quest St Kilda Road is her third Quest franchise and she brings more than 20 years of aparthotel management experience to the role.

"We've generated a lot of interest from the business community, but we're also pleased to see large groups and families choosing Quest St Kilda Road as their extended stay accommodation of choice. The City of Melbourne, South Melbourne and Albert Park Lake contains some of Australia's most recognised landmarks and commercial centres, so we're very pleased with the unique service-offering this location allows," she said.

Quest St Kilda Road features complimentary WiFi, business lounge, a gymnasium and wheelchair accessibility. Additional services include room service powered by Deliveroo, on-site car parking, valet dry cleaning and concierge, housekeeping and business administration services.
