TFE Hotels has announced it is now accepting reservations and will welcome guests at Vibe Hotel Melbourne from April 16 as final preparations continue on the newest addition to the brand.
Marking the reintroduction of the Vibe label in the Victorian capital, the 206-room property will sit on the corner of Queen and Flinders Street, across the street from the Yarra River and close to Southbank, Crown Casino, Federation Square, the Melbourne Convention Centre and the sporting complex of the MCG and Rod Laver Arena.
The hotel exterior of 24-storey reinforced glass will be fronted by the restored original 1873 Fletcher Jones façade, which itself will house the property’s all-day dining outlet – St Marks Co eatery. A transitional podium has been constructed between the modern hotel building and the historic frontage to facilitate access and abide by mandated construction and design requirements. Inside the hotel, guests will have access to a fitness centre and indoor swimming pool.
Described as a brand that embodies the Australian lifestyle, Vibe has been on a significant expansion trajectory in the past year, with new properties opening in North Sydney and Darling Harbour, while Hobart and Adelaide are still to come.
“Vibe is a homegrown brand and a true blend of Australian contemporary design and hospitality,” said TFE Hotels CEO Antony Ritch.
