TRYP by Wyndham Melbourne will be the brand’s maiden location in Victoria.

Melbourne’s inner-city suburb of Carlton will become home to the city’s first TRYP by Wyndham after the company confirmed it had signed a management deal for a newbuild hotel to be developed across from the University of Melbourne.

To be managed by the urban lifestyle brand, TRYP by Wyndham Melbourne will be a 173-room property a few minutes’ from the restaurants, boutiques and nightlife of Lygon Street. It will become the fifth TRYP in Australia, with three in Brisbane and the Gold Coast and development underway on the brand’s first property in Adelaide.

Construction by TRYP by Wyndham Melbourne will be led by Manors Gate Group, which has outlined plans for art-inspired interior spaces and an attention-grabbing exterior reflective of Melbourne’s energy and vibrancy. Hotel facilities will include a café-style restaurant, rooftop bar, fitness centre, meeting and event spaces and a cooperative business zone with co-working spaces.

Wyndham Hotels and Resorts President and Managing Director, South East Asia and Pacific Rim, Joon Aun Ooi, said Carlton was the ideal location for a TRYP by Wyndham.

“With its intuitive amenities and smart social spaces, this stylish hotel will ensure that business and leisure travellers are kept fully connected throughout their stay in this fantastic city.”

TRYP by Wyndham Melbourne is on track to open in the first quarter of 2021.
