Sofitel Adelaide gears up for November opening

The new Sofitel Adelaide is gearing up to open on November 4, marking the city’s first internationally recognised five-star hotel to be built in 30 years.

“It’s almost show time, and we couldn’t be more excited as we countdown to welcome our first guests next month,” said Sofitel Adelaide’s 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.”

Located on Currie Street, the $150 million hotel will offer 251 guest rooms and suites. Sofitel will also open a new Champagne bar, Déjà Vu, and Garçon Bleu – a French re-imagined restaurant with an open kitchen, an extensive wine wall, and an up-lit oyster and raw seafood bar

Art will also play an important role at the Sofitel with the hotel currently installing artwork from more than ten local and international artists, including photographers Emmaline Zanelli and Drew Lenman; painter and ceramicist Michael Carney and glassblower Nick Mount– who all hail from South Australia.

“These details are important in our ambition to become Adelaide’s official hotel for the arts, and will hopefully provide talking points for guests, inspiring them to explore and discover something new and interesting on every visit,” said Harman.
