Massive upgrade for landmark Adelaide hotel


The InterContinental Adelaide, one of Adelaide's landmark luxury hotels, has announced a major renovation project.

The hotel's asset management company, TCC Land International, based in Thailand, together with hotel operator, IHG Hotels & Resorts, has outlined plans for an extensive $32 million investment into the iconic 367-room hotel, which will commence in late 2021.

The refurbishment will include a re-design of all 367 guestrooms and suites; upgrades to meeting and event spaces; a refreshed restaurant and bar; enhancements to the hotel's award-winning Japanese teppanyaki restaurant, Shiki; and a new InterContinental Club Lounge space and experience.

It will also mean a facelift for the hotel's entrance, lobby, hallways and lifts.

“InterContinental Adelaide has been one of the city's most-loved and iconic luxury hotels for many years, hosting travellers from around the world," said general manager Michael Gaedtke.

"We know that South Aussies have a great pride in our iconic, vibrant hotel with its riverbank location and views directly over the Torrens and Adelaide Oval, and we recognise the responsibility that comes with that. This renovation affirms our commitment to South Australian tourism, and demonstrates support for the Government's focus on growing the state's share of high-yielding domestic and international visitors.”

Leanne Harwood, IHG managing director for Australasia and Japan, added: “InterContinental Adelaide is consistently ranked as one of IHG's top hotels from a guest satisfaction perspective, and we know that travellers will be excited to see the new product once it is complete."

Notable past guests at the hotel have included the Rolling Stones, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, the Australian and Indian cricket teams, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The hotel will remain open throughout the renovation, which is expected to be completed in early 2023.

IHG currently has 60 hotels operating under six brands in Australasia, including a big presence in South Australia with Crowne Plaza Adelaide, Holiday Inn Express Adelaide, and the new Hotel IndigoAdelaide, which opened on March 1.
