MELBOURNE: With the recent announcement that Quincy Hotels will debut in Melbourne early next year, TFE (Toga Far East) Hotels is preparing for a string of new hotel openings across the city.
Globally renowned as Australia’s capital of culture and cool and earning the world’s ‘most liveable’ tag ten times over, TFE Hotels remains confident in Melbourne’s tourism revival and is expecting a strong resurgence in intra- and interstate leisure market as restrictions started to ease.
Hot on the heels of the opening of the city’s newest urban lifestyle hotel, the 206-room Vibe Hotel Melbourne, comes the 220-room Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne Southbank – Australia’s first cross-laminated timber high-rise hotel, which will open in late October. In November, doors will open on the 99-room Adina Apartment Hotel West Melbourne in the city’s up-and-coming trendy ‘West End’ precinct. This opening activity culminates with the introduction of the quirky and colourful Quincy brand into Australia with the opening of the 241-room Quincy Hotel Melbourne in early 2021.
TFE Hotels’ Chief Executive Officer, Antony Ritch says these four new hotel openings were a positive step forward for Victoria’s tourism industry after a very challenging year.
“Melbourne is one of the world’s great cities and we’re excited about its future,” he said.
Ritch said TFE would continue to make investments, like these four new hotels, because they believed in the strength and resilience of the Australian market in the long term.
"When it comes to our development pipeline, we’re immensely proud to create showpiece properties that continue to evolve our brands into experiences where our guests are fully immersed in the local neighbourhood,” he said. “And we look forward to seeing more Australians travel as it is safe to do so."
