Quest rebrand initiates next chapter for historic Hotel

The historical Grand Hotel Melbourne has officially been rebranded as a Quest property.

Located in Melbourne’s CBD at 33 Spencer Street, the 4.5 Star property offers 95 apartment style accommodation options.

Quest CEO, Zed Sanjana was delighted to announce the addition to the Quest Apartment Hotels group, highlighting the property’s strong appeal to Quest’s core target customer, the extended stay business traveller.

“Quest Grand Hotel Melbourne is a great asset to the Quest network. This heritage listed property is a Melbourne icon that has been cleverly transformed, and caters to the accommodation needs of short or long stay business travellers. Beyond its majestic façade, the building offers top quality amenities, a unique spaciousness and an ambience of grandeur attributable to the Victorian era.”

The building has a rich history, originally built in the 1880s as the Victorian Railways Administration offices, due to the land’s proximity to Spencer Street and Flinders Street Stations. It was acquired in the early 1990s and converted into a luxury hotel.

The prime location on the corner of Spencer and Flinders Streets positions Quest Grand Hotel Melbourne very favourably for business travellers to Melbourne’s CBD.

Quest Grand Hotel Melbourne is Quest’s eighth property in Melbourne’s CBD and the 54th Quest property in Victoria.
