Now Open Quest Canberra City Walk
This week, ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr MLA joined Quest General Manager – Franchise Operations, David Ridgeway, to officially open Quest Canberra City Walk.
ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr presented the franchisee, Fahim Malik, with an official plaque which is now installed in the hotel foyer alongside artwork by internationally acclaimed Canberra-based artist, Kylie Fogarty.
Developed by Sandran Property Group, the property features 84 serviced apartments and is located in the heart of Canberra’s CBD, positioned between Canberra’s City Centre, Glebe Park and the National Convention Centre.
Tourism Research Australia’s latest research found that the ACT had experienced a 9.4 per cent increase in international visitors and a 3.1 per cent increase in
Australians staying overnight, attracted by the capital’s variety of tourism experiences and growing education, cultural and business hubs.
“The opening of Quest’s second property is a further signal of the confidence investors have in our city. The convenient central city location will no doubt have wide appeal to both the business and leisure traveller coming to Canberra,” Chief Minister Barr said.
Quest Canberra City Walk franchisee Fahim Malik thanked the Chief Minister and the local community for their support since he purchased his first franchise, Quest Canberra, more than two years ago.
“It’s an honour to receive the support of the ACT Government and the local community. We’re excited to work with our corporate clients in Canberra and the tourism industry to provide a premium home away from home experience for business and leisure travellers in Canberra,” Mr Malik said.
Quest Canberra City Walk features 84 serviced apartments including studio, one and two bedroom apartments. Located at 240 City Walk the property features conference facilities, car parking, high-speed unlimited WiFi and a business centre.
