Quest East Perth Property Opening

By Quest Apartment Hotels, 8 November, 2016


Last night, the Premier of Western Australia Colin Barnett and Paralympic Gold medalist, Curtis McGrath joined Quest CEO, Zed Sanjana to officially open the newest addition to the Quest Apartment Hotels network, Quest East Perth, at 176 Adelaide Terrace, increasing Quest’s offering in Western Australia by 130 rooms.
 
Last night’s opening in the Perth CBD is a continuation of Quest’s assertive growth strategy in
WA. The leading apartment hotel operator will add seven brand new properties to the WA market over the next two years to meet continually expanding accommodation demands. The new property, which opened on 31st October, is Quest’s third in the Perth CBD, providing yet another premium apartment hotel offering for both the corporate and leisure traveller. It comes during an exciting period of expansion taking place in Perth, reflecting the city’s growing global significance.
 
To mark last night’s opening event, Quest East Perth donated $5,000 to Soldier On, an organisation which supports Australian soldiers by focusing on their physical and mental health, their community and their future. This donation highlights Quest’s ongoing commitment to the communities in which they operate. Solider On WA/NT State Manager, Ray Wilson was at Quest East Perth to accept the donation and expressed his sincere gratitude. “Soldier On is delighted and privileged to receive this $5,000 donation from Quest East Perth. Without the support of businesses like Quest Apartment Hotels, organisations such as Soldier On would not be able to provide ongoing support and assistance to our wounded servicemen and women. On behalf of Soldier On, I would like to thank Quest East Perth Franchisee Byron McDonald for his generosity,” Mr Wilson said.
 
Quest CEO, Zed Sanjana is confident about the future of tourism in WA, with more than 97,000 people in the state being employed directly or indirectly by the tourism industry. According to Tourism Research Australia, since 2010 the number of international visitors to WA has increased by 25%, from 710,400 to 888,000 visitors. “Perth’s geographical position is a key advantage for global businesses, meaning it is home to the Australian headquarters of many global companies. It is positioned to become an increasingly significant global city over the next decade as major industries strengthen and diversify, thereby expanding the workforce in the CBD,” said Mr Sanjana.
“The state of Western Australia is privileged to have world-­class reserves of natural mineral and energy resources, and in turn the city has become home to a highly educated, skilled and productive workforce. Today’s opening exemplifies Quest’s commitment to WA, with over 700 rooms to be added to the local market over the next two years,” he concluded.
 
Premier and Tourism Minister Colin Barnett welcomed Quest’s investment in Western Australia and said it was an endorsement of the State’s growing tourism industry. “Western Australia’s visitor economy was worth $9.6 billion in 2015-­16. The State Government has a strategy to grow that figure to $12 billion by 2020,” the Premier said.
“Offering a range of quality accommodation will play an important role in reaching our 2020 goal.” The potential demand from East Perth is extremely positive with over 90 infrastructure projects linked to the location, a strong proportion of which are confirmed, or likely to go ahead. Perth has recently seen several projects completed or near completion, including Elizabeth Quay, Riverside Project and Kings Square. Quest East Perth Franchisee, Byron McDonald expressed his excitement about being a part of the highly regarded Quest network and his eagerness to welcome his first guests to the stunning new property. “I feel privileged to be part of such a prestigious organisation. Quest’s reputation, paired with its extensive internal support systems, have really set me up for success in the future,” Mr McDonald said.
 
“Quest East Perth is one of only a few brand new hotels to be built on Adelaide Terrace in the last 15 years. Its unique location means it is able to service businesses not only in East Perth but those located along Adelaide Terrace in the CBD too. It is also positioned to capitalise on exciting developments and progress occurring in East Perth and Burswood. The new construction of the footbridge connecting East Perth to Burswood will give our guests direct access to the new stadium due for completion in 2018.”
 
“I am very confident in the endurance of the Perth market. The mining industry has slowed, however Perth is proving to be an extremely diverse economy, with other industries evolving and performing with strength. Perth is one of the most livable cities in the world and current developments will see Perth continue to evolve and become an even more popular tourist destination in the future,” he concluded. A highlight of the event was the spectacular catering that was prepared on-­site by Chef Chris Taylor and his team from Fraser’s Restaurant. The brand new property features 130 studio, one and two bedroom apartments. Guests of Quest East Perth have access to free Wi-­Fi, Foxtel, onsite car parking, gymnasium, local restaurant chargeback, pantry shopping, dry cleaning and business administration services.
 
The coming year sees an extensive pipeline of new property openings for Quest across Australia, opening in 10 new locations. In addition to East Perth, this includes: Fremantle, Midland and Innaloo (WA);; Griffith, Macquarie Park and Newcastle West (NSW);; Port Adelaide (SA); Dandenong Central (VIC);; and Eight Mile Plains (QLD).
