Ibis Adelaide hotel opens its doors

By Chris Chamberlin, July 29 2014

Opening its doors today is the Ibis Adelaide hotel – the first new-build Ibis in Australia since 2008.

With an overtly modern feel given off by the funky and ‘chic’ lighting and in-room technology, the hotel suits both leisure guests and budget-conscious business travellers.

All 311 rooms come with slim Samsung Smart Hub 690 Series TVs, which the chain claims to be the most compact screen to “ever be implemented in a hotel in Australia” at just 19mm depth.

Guests can browse the room service menus through the smart TVs, while gymnasium facilities come with the latest ‘Technogym’ exercise equipment with Bluetooth support.

After a hard day's work, there's restaurant for a nice meal, and of course a bar to sink a few quiet ones...

Rooms boast subtle and specially-commissioned works by street graffiti artist ‘Ghostpatrol’, who has collections at the National Gallery of Australia and Artbank:

Even as an “economy hotel”, this centrally-located property packs in the expected ‘Sweet Bed by ibis’ for a good night’s sleep and also a business area in the lobby for getting things done:

Members of Le Club Accorhotels can earn and redeem Le Club points for stays at the Ibis Adelaide.

A $200 folio would net roughly 175 Le Club points for a Classic member, 217 points for a Silver, 259 for a Gold and 308 for a Platinum, based on today’s AUD-EUR exchange rate.

While now open to travellers, Ibis Adelaide’s official opening ceremony will take place on August 14.

It was fascinating to see it under construction as I passed it every day on my to work, and now I am sure it will serve as a proud addition to our city as Adelaide grows to welcome more tourists and more big events.
