"The opening of lyf Collingwood signals the start of a phase of growth for The Ascott Limited in Australia, following the successful integration of the Quest Apartment Hotels brand into the business," said The Ascott Limited Managing Director – Australia, David Mansfield.
"We see great opportunity for expansion across key gateway cities in Australia, especially for our globally successful Citadines Apart'hotel and lyf brands and we are currently working with a number of interested parties on both management and franchise models."
lyf Collingwood Melbourne is intended to be a space where leisure and corporate travellers can mix – offering a networking lounge, free barista-made coffee for Ascott Star Rewards Members, high-speed Wi-Fi, a communal kitchen and a laundry space complete with old-school arcade-style game machines.
The lyf Residence Manager, Shermaine Chong mentioned, "Start-ups and technopreneurs don't just want a conference room — they want fun, creative spaces, and the opportunity to explore. They want to bond and network organically"
"Guests don't just want a room and a shower. They're looking to connect with like-minded people. They want a team who can help them really discover the fabric of a neighbourhood — the secret bar, the pop-up restaurant, the late-night comedy gig. Our guests want authenticity and community — they want somewhere to stay that is much more than somewhere to sleep."
The hotel – which includes a 24-hour reception staffed by 'lyf guards' – is also pet friendly with the 'CollingWOOF' package (https://www.discoverasr.com/
