Ibis Hotel opens in Adelaide
The economy hotel sector in Australia continues to be revitalised with the launch of the most innovative economy hotel to be built in Australia – Hines Property’s $70m Ibis Adelaide Hotel.
The ‘affordable chic’ Ibis product features a radically different lobby and public area design, advanced levels of technology, high quality bedding and in-room facilities and a prime central business district location – all at an affordable rate.
A stand out technology feature is the Samsung Smarthub 690 Series in every room which, as its name suggests, is the smartest one-stop-shop for accessing everything from the restaurant’s menu and on demand entertainment to internet enabled TV apps, while gym facilities feature the latest Technogym exercise equipment with Bluetooth capabilities.
In another Australian first for Ibis Adelaide, rooms feature artworks by street graffiti artist Ghostpatrol, who was specially commissioned for the project. Ghostpatrol has had a number of solo exhibitions as well as collections at the National Gallery of Australia and Artbank.
Beds offer guests the ultimate in affordable comfort with the inventive ‘Sweet Bed by ibis’ bedding concept, a standard of bedding normally reserved for 5 star hotels.
Located in the heart of the Adelaide CBD, Ibis Adelaide is the ultimate hotel for business and leisure travel. The hotel features 311 guest rooms, a bar, restaurant and conference facilities, WiFi throughout the hotel, guest laundry and an on-site gym. Ibis Adelaide is adjacent to the city's shopping and dining precincts, Rundle Mall and Rundle Street. The Adelaide Oval, Casino, Convention Centre, Botanic Gardens, National Wine Centre and Royal Adelaide Hospital are also within walking distance.
