Adelaide will be home to a much-anticipated Acccor hotel by the end of the next quarter, with Sofitel Adelaide set to open its doors in September.
Originally set to make its debut in 2018, the launch comes three years behind schedule: but there's every indication it's been worth the wait.
Situated on Currie Street in the city's CBD, the property will offer 250 rooms and suites across 24 floors of a 32-storey mixed use tower, with the top eight floors home to 80 private sale apartments.
Hotel guests can unwind at two bars, the French-inspired in-house restaurant, or can hit the marble-clad swimming pool or fitness centre for their daily workout.
Add to that a ballroom, meeting and conference rooms, and a signature Sofitel Club Lounge, giving the hotel appeal with both business and leisure travellers.
"Sofitel Adelaide is one of our biggest hotel openings of 2021 and its level of luxury and onsite amenities will ensure it’s one of Adelaide’s most illustrious new destinations," said Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath.
"Distinguished by its bursting calendar of cultural events and flourishing passions for gastronomy, fine wine, music, fashion and design, Adelaide is an ideal destination for our Sofitel brand."
Greeting guests as they arrive is a flowing (and red wine-inspired) chandelier, charting a path into the lobby and the lounge bar.
Guestrooms come stylishly appointed with elements of cathedrals from both Adelaide – the City of Churches – and France, the Sofitel brand's native territory.
Suites offer even more space to stretch out, blending old world detailing with new world styling, in a nod to French colonial style.
Rates begin at $350/night, with members of Accor Live Limitless able to earn and spend points at the hotel, and enjoy their usual tier benefits such as free Internet access and room upgrades, as applicable.
