Adelaide's grand new hotel opens its doors

The doors have officially opened at Sofitel Adelaide, which is being promoted as "Australia's most anticipated hotel launch for 2021".

Located in the true heart of the city on Currie Street, the $150 million flagship hotel offers guests a selection of 251 luxurious guest rooms and suites (superior, deluxe, luxury, luxury club, prestige and opera suites), with a selection of city and Adelaide Hills views.

Bathrooms feature free-standing bathtubs and there are Balmain Paris bathroom amenities 

“We are truly excited to open Sofitel Adelaide, which not only marks Sofitel's debut in South Australia, but also represents Adelaide's first internationally recognised five-star address to be built in 30 years," said general manager Rachael Harman. 

“Each Sofitel draws inspiration from local culture while celebrating innovation and imparting a French sense of hospitality, and Sofitel Adelaide will proudly continue this tradition. We aim to deliver a one-of-a-kind, luxurious hotel experience, but with a distinct Adelaide feel.”

The pièce de resistance is the palatial Presidential Suite, with its own dining room and open living room concept, walk-in wardrobe, private study and a grand bedroom with an additional en suite bathroom.

All Luxury Club rooms and suites at Sofitel Adelaide provide guests with access to additional complementary facilities and services as part of Club Millésime

Situated on level 10, Club Millésime features a private lounge serving complimentary à la carte breakfast, afternoon tea and evening drinks and canapés, as well as offering personalised check-in and check out.

The marble used throughout the Sofitel was sourced personally by the hotel owner, Daniel Palumbo, and his family direct from Carrera in Italy. 

“Most of the features in this hotel, from the art and furnishings to the flooring, have been selected and overseen by members of the Palumbo family,” Harman said. 

“This attention to detail was maintained during the installation phase, evidenced by features such as the book leaf cut used to join the veins of marble together in the lobby.”

Hotel facilities include a fitness centre and pool. 

Every Sofitel around the world is culturally linked with a city or region in France that shares similar attributes in terms of culture, landscape and design, and Sofitel Adelaide is culturally linked with Bordeaux. 

Coinciding with the hotel's official debut is the opening of Garçon Bleu - a French restaurant. 

With elevated city views from its location on level nine of the new Sofitel Adelaide, Garçon Bleu's 90-seat dining room boasts an open kitchen, an extensive wine wall, and an up-lit oyster and raw seafood bar. 

The hotel has also opened a street-level Champagne bar, Déjà Vu, inspired by the romantic sidewalk cafes of Paris, which will offer beverages, lighter meals and casual eats seven days a week.

Rates at Sofitel Adelaide start from $320 per room per night.
