Adelaide has been chosen as Australia’s debut for the international Treehouse hotel brand at the $400 million Market Square development at Adelaide Central Market.
SH Hotels & Resorts opened its first Treehouse Hotel in London last year with openings in Manchester, California and Florida set to follow.
The hotel will offer 248 guest rooms and suites, more than 500sqm of indoor and outdoor event space, and restaurant and bar with outdoor seating.
“We were drawn to the history and the energy of the Adelaide Central Market precinct and we are thrilled to be part of its exciting future,” SH Hotels & Resorts CEO Raul Leal said.
“Treehouse Hotel at Market Square will creatively capture the carefree comfort, freedom and nostalgia of childhood that appeals to all of us.”
Adelaide City Council is putting in $32 million towards the multi-use development by developer ICD Property.
“Treehouse Hotel will create a one-of-a-kind hotel experience for Adelaide that blends seamlessly with the lively atmosphere of Market Square,” ICD deputy managing director Sal Quah said.
“Treehouse Hotel seamlessly harmonises with the diverse offerings of Market Square, creating a dynamic and convenient experience – guests can enjoy easy access to a vibrant retail scene, ensuring that everything they need is within reach, while visitors to the precinct will be able to enjoy the hotel’s restaurant and bar.”
Adelaide Lord Mayor Jane Lomax-Smith said the hotel would support the growth of the city.
“This new 248-room hotel will not only attract tourists from near and far but will also contribute to the economic vitality of the city, positioning Adelaide as the ultimate destination in Australia,” she said.
The development will be delivered in stages with the expected completion of the commercial component in 2025, the retail area in 2026, and the residences across 2025 and 2026.
