IHG Hotels & Resorts have plans for a fifth hotel in Adelaide with the signing of Holiday Inn & Suites Mawson Lakes.

IHG’s agreement with Pelligra Group for the new-build hotel was announced on the eve of the Australia’s Australasian Hotel Industry Conference and Exhibition, which is also being held in Adelaide for the second consecutive year.

Slated to open in 2024, the 130-room hotel will feature all the Holiday Inn brand hallmarks, including an Open Lobby, as well as all-day dining restaurant and lobby bar, conferencing facilities and gymnasium.

The Mawson Lakes project was officially unveiled at a ground-breaking ceremony in Adelaide, attended by SA Premier Peter Malinauskas, City of Salisbury Mayor Gillian Aldridge, hotel owner Ross Pelligra, IHG CEO EMEAA Kenneth Macpherson, and SVP Managing Director – Japan, Australasia and Pacific Leanne Harwood.

The hotel will be located adjacent to the University of South Australia Mawson Lakes campus, Mawson Central Shopping Centre and the Parafield Airport and within close proximity to the Edinburgh RAAF Base, Lyell McEwin Hospital, several major manufacturing and logistics centres.

“We have a shared vision of creating world-class, cutting-edge hotels and the Pelligra Group clearly has an affinity for our brands, and we would love to grow that together,” said Leanne Harwood, SVP Managing Director Japan, Australasia and Pacific.

“What’s also incredibly pleasing is to be here in Adelaide, building on the stellar hotel portfolio IHG already has in this fantastic city. Holiday Inn & Suites Mawson Lakes will perfectly complement our existing hotels, InterContinental Adelaide, Crowne Plaza Adelaide, Hotel Indigo Adelaide and Holiday Inn Express Adelaide City Centre.”
