Australia: Quest Apartment Hotels will open five properties in the Melbourne metro area in the next seven months.

Melbourne is Quest's heartland, with founder and chairman Paul Constantinou establishing the first Quest property in 1988, Quest Royal Gardens in Fitzroy. The city has remained a priority region within Quest's growth strategy.

In addition to Quest Maribyrnong and Quest Epping, which opened in late June and July, Quest will be opening properties in Notting Hill, St Kilda Road and NewQuay, creating approximately 125 jobs. The addition of these hotels will bring Quest's total number of Melbourne properties to 47, offering 3,169 rooms across the city.

STR, the source for benchmarking, analytics and marketplace insights for the hospitality industry, believes Quest's activity in the Melbourne market is unmatched: "In the past decade, no other single brand has opened so many properties in one year in one market," said Matthew Burke, STR regional manager Pacific.

Quest general manager - growth James Shields said: "Melbourne has long been recognised as the most liveable city in the world, and is attracting more and more residents and investment. This growth, paired with the continued urbanisation of the metro area presents a huge opportunity for new Quest properties. Our growing number of corporate guests need to move around the city for their work and Quest will be there to meet their accommodation requirements. Major projects such as Melbourne Metro, Level Crossing removal project and the West Gate Tunnel demonstrate the investment and interest in the state and have been major drivers for many new Quest properties."
