Choice Hotels welcomes new properties in Melbourne and Adelaide

International hotel franchise group Choice Hotels Asia-Pac has announced the addition of new properties in both Melbourne and Adelaide.

Comfort Apartments Royal Gardens is the latest addition to Choice’s Melbourne network, situated in the heart of Fitzroy.

Formerly a Quest-branded property, the Comfort Apartments Royal Gardens boasts separate living and dining spaces, with fully equipped kitchens and dining areas to enjoy meals from the comfort of the guest’s own space.

The onsite swimming pool, BBQ area and one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments with private balconies overlooking the garden or a courtyard make the property ideal for families, large groups or corporates looking for a home away from home.

Comfort Apartments Royal Gardens general manager Anthony Murphy brings a wealth of knowledge in strategic franchising and diverse industry experience.

In North Adelaide, Choice has welcomed Econo Lodge North Adelaide and Comfort Hotel Adelaide Meridien – a dual-branded property operated by 1834 Hotels.

The new additions further solidify Choice’s relationship with the management company, which also operate the Quality Apartments Adelaide Central, which joined the group earlier in 2021.

Econo Lodge North Adelaide and Comfort Hotel Adelaide Meridien comprise one- and two-bedroom apartments with an onsite gym and outdoor pool. The hotel is located within walking distance of North Adelaide’s hospitality district.

Trent Fraser, CEO of Choice Hotels Asia-Pac, said: “I’m thrilled to be welcoming such strong additions into our network in Melbourne and Adelaide, especially during a time when we’re firmly focused on supporting our franchisee’s recovery.

“I commend each of our hoteliers for their perseverance during these challenging times while we continue to navigate and bounce back from rolling lockdowns around the country.”
