Sofitel Adelaide hotel to open in 2018

By Chris Chamberlin, April 21 2015

Adelaide will gain a new Accor hotel in 2018 with the opening of the Sofitel Adelaide on Currie Street in the city’s CBD.

Residing in part of a 32-storey mixed-use tower to become the tallest residential development in South Australia, the hotel will offer 250 rooms and suites over 24 floors, underneath eight floors of 80 private sale apartments.

Guests at the Sofitel can unwind at four different bars, the in-house restaurant, or can hit the swimming pool or fitness centre for their daily workout.

Add to that a ballroom, meeting and conference rooms and a signature Sofitel Club Lounge, making the hotel suitable to both business and leisure travellers, including business travellers with a little spare time to relax.

“The new-build Sofitel will open shortly after the stage two completion of the Convention Centre’s East Building and the proposed Adelaide Airport expansion,” said Accor Pacific COO Simon McGrath.

“This a significant win for the economic development of Adelaide.”

Construction begins in 2017, with members of the Le Club Accorhotels loyalty program able to earn and redeem Le Club points at the hotel once opened, and can enjoy their usual benefits including free in-room Internet and room upgrades, as applicable.

Is there demand for much taller buildings in Adelaide? 

Given that much of the city is still far lower-rise than whatever the maximal height constraints imposed by the airport are, I suspect that there just isn't. 

That said, if I had a lot of money I'd be buying up cheap real estate in the Adelaide CBD with a view to developing it in thirty years. Surely Adelaide has got to catch up with the other big five cities eventually. Adelaide is an ideal destination for young Melburnites who don't feel like paying a million bucks for a three-bedroom house.
