Mantra Group have rebranded two new hotel acquisitions in Melbourne and Brisbane.
Mantra St Kilda Road Melbourne and Mantra on the Quay Brisbane – both formerly managed by Mint Hotels and Apartments – offer apartment style accommodation. This takes Mantra’s Melbourne property count to seven and its Brisbane properties to three.
Mantra Group CEO, Bob East, said, “In Melbourne it is great to have a hotel in this part of town complementing the strong network we have in Melbourne CBD and at Tullamarine.
“Sustained increases in demand continue to outpace growth in supply in the Melbourne market, creating an environment for rate driven RevPar growth.
“Demand is always strong in our current Brisbane hotels – Mantra South Bank and Mantra on Queen – so to bring further inventory of such a high quality into the group for our growing corporate client base is a very positive outcome.
“Brisbane continues to be a buoyant market – albeit not at the same heights of two or three years ago – but we predict a period of moderate but sustained growth post G20 Summit.”
