French hospitality chain Accor will debut the Sofitel brand in South Australia when Sofitel Adelaide opens its doors in September.
This is also the first internationally recognised five-star hotel to be built in Adelaide in 30 years.
Sitting in the city's heart on Currie Street, the 251-key hotel offers rooms and suites designed with French and vintage influences, and views overlooking the Adelaide skyline.
When it launches, Sofitel Adelaide will sit within part of a 32-storey mixed-use tower, where the first 24 floors will go to the hotel's leisure and business facilities, including an indoor pool, gym, two bars, Sofitel Club Lounge, two meeting rooms, and Garcon Bleu serving up French plates with locally sourced produce.
Quintessential Adelaide themes, such as churches and wine, are reflected in local art pieces such as the lobby centrepiece, as well as modern homage to churches appearing in floor tiles and mosaic windows — a nod to cathedrals in both Adelaide and France.
Sofitel Adelaide will join a growing portfolio of five Sofitel hotels and resorts in Australia, and more than 120 globally.
