The renowned Quay Grand Suites Sydney rebranded to Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour, joining two other Pullmans in Sydney – Pullman Sydney Olympic Park and Pullman Sydney Hyde Park (currently completing a massive upgrading programme following its re-branding from Sydney Marriott in May 2012).
Set on the eastern shore of Circular Quay and overlooking Sydney Harbour, the Pullman is only steps away from the central business district and the city’s key attractions including the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Botanical Gardens and Circular Quay.
The Sebel Cairns, The Sebel King George Square Brisbane and The Sebel Albert Park Melbourne are all primed to take on Pullman branding within the next six months, which puts Pullman on track to becoming Australia’s largest 5-star network, with the brand expected to grow to up to 15 hotels by the end of 2013.
Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour is an outstanding addition to the network. Set on the eastern shore of Circular Quay and overlooking Sydney Harbour, the Pullman is only steps away from the central business district and the city’s key attractions including the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Botanical Gardens and all the bustle of Circular Quay.
The hotel boasts 67 contemporary one and two-bedroom suites, all of which come with balconies, separate lounge and dining rooms, gourmet kitchens and deluxe bathrooms, and offer spectacular views either of Sydney Harbour or the Botanical Gardens. Work desks and wireless internet are available in all suites, making the hotel a popular choice for business guests.
The hotel offers fine dining in Quadrant Restaurant, while the glass-encased ECQ Bar was re-launched in 2011 and is one of Sydney’s most popular venues for sunset drinks and pre-show dinners.
Pullman hotels are synonymous with providing quality meeting facilities, and Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour proves this to be the case, with three unique function rooms, some with spectacular harbour views. The function space can cater for up to 140 guests.
Chief Operating Officer of Accor Pacific, Simon McGrath, said growing the Pullman brand in Australia was a key priority for the group, with many of the former Mirvac hotels scheduled to be re-branded to Pullman over the next twelve months.
“The Pullman brand holds such a rich history and is highly regarded throughout Asia and Europe, and it makes sense for us to grow this brand in Australia where there is clear demand for quality internationally-branded hotels aimed at the corporate and upscale leisure markets.
“We see Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour as one of the brand’s flagship hotels in the region and it will be the venue for the Pullman Global Launch in December, as we celebrate the strength and growth of the Pullman brand.
“There is considerable investment being made in the Pullman network in both Australia and internationally, and the expansion of the brand in Australia comes at a time when the brand is launching signature hotels in other major centres around the world. Pullman is already a major brand in key source markets for Australia across Asia and Europe, and it is anticipated that there will be some 150 Pullman hotels and resorts by 2015.”
