Not necessary. You can use the $object->property syntax from inside
double quotes as well, as stated in the PHP documentation [1]:

"Similarly, you can also have an array index OR AN OBJECT PROPERTY parsed."

Emphasis mine. An example is also given:

// Works
echo "This square is $square->width meters broad.";
