FOUR NEW TFE HOTELS FOR MELBOURNE

We love an good hotel opening, so you can imagine how we feel about a flurry of four of them in Melbourne.

With the recent announcement that Quincy Hotels will debut in Melbourne early next year, TFE (Toga Far East) Hotels is busy with a string of new hotel openings across the city.

TFE Hotels’ Chief Executive Officer, Antony Ritch says its 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.

MEET THE HOTELS

VIBE MELBOURNE

First off the block, Vibe Melbourne opened its doors on one of the world’s most celebrated CBD blocks, on the corner of Flinders and Queen Street. The hotel is perfectly positioned within walking distance of everything Melbourne is famous for – art, culture, coffee, shopping, food, festivals and sport.

Opened: April 2020

ADINA MELBOURNE SOUTHBANK

Adina Melbourne Southbankis already making headlines for its uber ‘green’ credentials. The apartment hotel is also wrapped in a head-turning curved ‘glass curtain’ façade, including rooms with floor-to-ceiling views across the Yarra River, to Melbourne’s CBD in the north, or Port Philip Bay to the south.

Opened: 9 November 2020

ADINA WEST MELBOURNE

Adina West Melbourne will deliver a Zen-style urban experience as part of a $350 million luxury mixed-use precinct in Melbourne’s blossoming inner-city fringe. West End features 2,000sqm of Zen gardens, an on-site supermarket, 24/7 gym, coffee roastery, 10 eclectic eateries and a private outdoor retreat complete with a 25m lap pool, plunge pool and spa pool.

Opened: 4 December 2020

QUINCY MELBOURNE

Finally, the debut of Australia’s most exciting new hotel brand straight out of Singapore, will see Quincy Melbourne open on Flinders Lane. The hotel itself features distinctive interior design, three signature food experiences, a rooftop pool with views of Melbourne CBD, and exclusive club levels and lounge access. Sensory experiences and an innovative approach to room service are just some of the finer things that guests can expect to see when the brand-new hotel Quincy Melbourne opens.

Opening: First quarter 2021

Ritch said TFE would continue to make investments like these, because they believe 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,’ said Ritch.

“And we look forward to seeing more Australians travel as it is safe to do so,” he added.

QANTAS Announces San Francisco as next Dreamliner Destination

From early December 2019, Qantas passengers flying between Sydney and San Francisco will experience the airline’s next generation Economy, Premium Economy and Business cabins aboard the 787 Dreamliner.

The change coincides with the phased delivery of Qantas’ six additional Dreamliners, as the more efficient aircraft gradually replaces the Boeing 747 aircraft on the airlines’ international network by the end of 2020.

“As much as we’re sad to see Qantas’ fleet of 747s being retired, the deployment of these new aircraft and their brilliant in-flight offering bring new levels of quality on popular routes for our business and leisure clients”, said The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.

“We look forward to experiencing it for ourselves”, added Hosper.

The Sydney-San Francisco Dreamliner service will operate daily, complementing Qantas’ existing four-times-per-week Dreamliner service from Melbourne.

The popular Californian city is one of five international destinations currently served by the Qantas Dreamliner, along with Los Angeles, New York, London and Hong Kong.

Qantas International Acting CEO Naren Kumar said the ongoing roll-out of the Dreamliner was good news for more passengers across the airline’s network.

“Our Dreamliner is the most comfortable aircraft we have ever flown. Customer feedback on the cabin environment, from the seats to the anti-jetlag measures, continues to exceed our expectations,” said Mr Kumar.

“We’ll also soon begin upgrading the cabins of our A380 aircraft which means the inflight experience for our customers travelling to the United States will have never been better”, he added.

The new aircraft will bring Qantas’ total fleet of Dreamliners to 14 in the second half of 2020.

Qantas’ Dreamliner carries 236 passengers across three cabins. It features the latest version of the airline’s Business Suite, as well as a next generation Premium Economy seat and a significantly improved Economy seat with extra storage compartments and more legroom.
