Pullman now Australia’s largest five-star hotel brand

With the rebranding of the Quay Grand Suites Sydney to Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour, Accor’s Pullman brand has become the largest five-star hotel brand in Australia.

Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour joins two other Pullmans in Sydney – Pullman Sydney Olympic Park and Pullman Sydney Hyde Park (currently completing an upgrade following its re-branding from Sydney Marriott in May 2012). It also joins Pullman Reef Casino in Cairns and the recently rebadged Pullman Resort Bunker Bay in Western Australia’s Margaret River region.

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, putting Pullman on track to becoming Australia’s largest five-star network, with the brand expected to grow to up to 15 hotels by the end of 2013.

Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour is set on the eastern shore of Circular Quay and overlooking Sydney Harbour and 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 the Circular Quay.

The hotel boasts 67 one- and two-bedroom suites, all of which come with balconies, separate lounge and dining rooms, gourmet kitchens and deluxe bathrooms, and offer views either of Sydney Harbour or the Botanical Gardens. Work desks and wireless Internet are available in all suites.

The hotel offers fine dining in Quadrant Restaurant, while the glass-encased ECQ Bar was re-launched in 2011. Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour has three function rooms, some with harbor views. The function space can cater for up to 140 guests.
