The Grand Hotel Melbourne has been officially rebranded as a Quest property today (May 3).

Located in Melbourne’s CBD at 33 Spencer Street, the property offers business and leisure travellers 95 spacious studio, one and two bedroom apartment style accommodation options infused with 4.5 star comfort befitting one of the city’s landmark hotels.

Quest CEO, Zed Sanjana was delighted to formally announce this 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,” he said. “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.

“The building was acquired in the early 1990s and converted into a luxury hotel. Quest is proud to be a part of the next chapter of one of Melbourne’s most treasured possessions.

“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.

“The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Crown Entertainment Complex, Docklands and Melbourne’s legal and finance precincts are all in close proximity,” Sanjana said.

Guest facilities at Quest Grand Hotel Melbourne include an on-site restaurant and bar, valet parking, indoor swimming pool, spa, gym, outdoor BBQ and garden area, and a meeting room facility for up to 50 delegates.

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