InterContinental Adelaide will undergo a $32 million transformation starting late 2021.
The extensive refurbishment will be the first time the luxury hotel has received a facelift since opening under the InterContiental Hotels & Resorts brands in 2009.
The transformative refurbishment will include a redesign of all 367 guestrooms and suites; upgrades to meeting and event spaces; a refreshed restaurant and bar; enhancements to the hotel’s Japanese teppanyaki restaurant and a new InterContinental Club Lounge space and experience.
The hotel’s entrance, lobby, hallways and lifts will also be upgraded. New services and amenities including refined culinary experiences, event spaces, and expansive technology-enabled facilities are also planned.
South Australian Premier Steven Marshall welcomed the news, saying the refurbishment would add a valuable option for South Australia’s tourism, events and business sectors.
“It is a terrific vote of confidence in South Australia – and in our tourism and business credentials. We’ve already seen record occupancy in regional SA, and the highest occupancy in the CBD since the pandemic began, so today’s announcement adds further weight to the importance of continuing to evolve and innovate,” he said.
“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’s complete,” said Leanne Harwood, Managing Director for Australasia and Japan.
“We have no doubt that InterContinental Adelaide will continue to define itself as one of Adelaide’s most iconic luxury hotels”.
A project manager and an interior designer are yet to be selected for the enhancement.
The hotel will remain open throughout the renovation, which is expected to be completed in early 2023.
