Intercontinental Adelaide has announced an extensive refurbishment, commencing in late 2021. The hotel’s asset management company, TCC Land International along with hotel operator, IHG Hotels & Resorts, has outlined plans for a $32 million investment.

The refurbishment will include redesigning of all 367 guestrooms and suites;  meeting and event spaces upgrades; a refreshed restaurant and bar; enhancements to the hotel’s popular Japanese teppanyaki restaurant, Shiki; and a new Intercontinental Club Lounge space and experience. The hotel’s entrance, lobby, and hallways will also get a facelift.

As a part of the project, guests will be able to enjoy more refined culinary experiences, impressive spaces to host gatherings, and expansive technology-driven facilities for business and leisure.

South Australian Premier Steven Marshall said:

“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.

“I want to acknowledge IHG for their investment in Adelaide. It is extremely positive that they see both economic and strategic value in committing to our state moving forward.”

Leanne Harwood, the brand’s 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’s complete.

“We are so pleased that TCC Land International is investing in the future of this great property, the hotel industry, and South Australian tourism. We have no doubt that Intercontinental Adelaide will continue to define itself as one of Adelaide’s most iconic luxury hotels”.

The hotel will remain open, with the project expected to be completed in early 2023.
