The property opens in the heart of the city centre following a year-long £10m transformation converting and adding to the top three floors of the 1980s commercial office building.
The new apartment hotel complex, which will serve the local and international business community comprises 100 serviced apartments, reception, conference room, gym and back-of-house facilities.
Established by entrepreneur Paul Constantinou 30 years ago in Melbourne, the 170 strong Quest Apartment Hotels portfolio has made its name by offering a ‘home away from home’ to extended stay business travellers in key cities, regional towns and suburban locations across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.
With 29 properties currently in the pipeline and 14 under construction in its home markets – the brand plans to apply its successful model to open 10 properties across the UK in the next five years, with Liverpool marking the first.
Andrew Weisz, general manager – UK and Europe growth at Quest Apartment Hotels said: “The Northern Powerhouse Minister called Liverpool one of the most forward-thinking cities in the UK – and we couldn’t agree more.
“Liverpool is home to many expanding British and international businesses and, supported by the city’s fantastic transport network, those businesses need accommodation providers who truly understand their requirements.”
He added: “While the implications of a Brexit deal remain uncertain, one thing we know for sure is that Liverpool will remain a dynamic business hub that will continue to thrive.
“With an unrivalled location putting us at the heart of the thriving business community, we are confident Quest Liverpool City Centre will be the start of an exciting journey for Quest as we grow our presence and the apartment hotel proposition in the UK.”
