Leading international hotel franchise group Choice Hotels Asia-Pac continues to grow its Quality portfolio, welcoming two new properties to the well-recognised brand. Quality Apartments Adelaide Central in Adelaide, South Australia and across the Tasman, Quality Suites Central Square in Palmerston North, New Zealand.
The two properties join the global hotel group at an exciting time for the tourism industry at large, as it looks forward to the anticipated leisure travel boom across the domestic market.
Both formerly Quest branded properties, the new additions to Choice Hotels Asia-Pac demonstrate the strong value a global brand can bring to independent hotels, as the accommodation sector looks to recover post COVID-19.
Quality Apartments Adelaide Central, located in the Adelaide CBD, is a recently refurbished property comprising of stylish one and two-bedroom apartments. The property is located inside the historic T&G building, once Adelaide’s first skyscraper hotel with a long-standing reputation as one of Adelaide’s most iconic high-rise buildings, built in the early 20th century.
The property is the first in a partnership with 1834 Hotels, a white-label management solution for investors, freehold owners and lease hold owners.
