A home away from home for business travellers
Docklands Apartments Grand Mercure continue to attract a large number of corporate guests travelling to Melbourne, particularly those planning to stay more than just a day or two.
Accounting firm Pitcher Partners certainly sees the value in using Docklands Apartments Grand Mercure for its International Secondment Program.
Sarah Lamb, HR Manager at Pitcher Partners, said that 10 to 15 secondees move to Melbourne each year as part of the program, requiring up to three months accommodation.
“We need accommodation that is a ‘home away from home’,” said Ms Lamb. “Guests need the convenience of a hotel with all the space and comforts of home, so a fully self contained apartment, allowing them to cook their own meals and do their own washing, is ideal.
“They love that they have the ability to entertain and cook meals for each other. They are close to The Victoria Market and can easily pick up fresh produce or if they don’t feel like cooking, they have so many dining options right on their doorstep.”
“Secondees are here for work but also enjoy being able to experience the best of what Melbourne has to offer – the apartments and location have the right balance between corporate and tourist.”
Docklands Apartments Grand Mercure is located on the waterfront at NewQuay and offers contemporary designed, fully self contained Studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, with fully equipped kitchen and laundry, private balcony, spectacular views and access to a meeting room, business centre, undercover car parking, pool, gym and countless dining and shopping opportunities.
Apartments are within walking distance of the CBD, Queen Victoria Market, Harbour Town Shopping Centre and Etihad Stadium.
