Adelaide to welcome new Holiday Inn & Suites
The development of a Holiday Inn & Suites in Adelaide, Australia, was announced at the property’s ground-breaking ceremony.
Holiday Inn and Suites Mawson Lakes is the sixth hotel to have opened or been signed in a partnership between the IHG Hotels & Resorts and the Pelligra Group.
A growing partnership
IHG’s fifth hotel in Adelaide, Holiday Inn and Suites Mawson Lakes, is expected to open in 2024 as a part of the growing partnership between IHG and Pelligra Group.
The groundbreaking of this new-build hotel took place on the eve of Australasian Hotel Industry Conference and Exhibition (AHICE) in Adelaide. The hotel is owned by a joint venture between Pelligra Group and ONE7 Developments.
Ross Pelligra, CEO of Pelligra Group, said: “Today’s groundbreaking is proof that our industry is powering ahead and we have huge confidence in the future of hotels in Australia.”
“We are so proud to be growing with IHG Hotels & Resorts, in fact in just five years we signed six amazing hotels, with two already open. And I don’t see it stopping there, we would love to add another 20-30 hotels across IHG’s brand portfolio in the future, so I can only say: get ready for more to come.”
The Pelligra Group is now one of IHG’s largest partners in Australasia, with other collaborations including the 2021-opened Holiday Inn Werribee, the 2019-signed Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport and the forthcoming Holiday Inn Melbourne Richmond, Crowne Plaza Melbourne Carlton and Holiday Inn Dandenong, all opening by the end of 2023.
Catering to business and leisure travellers
The hotel will place guests within Adelaide’s northern suburbs, adjacent to the University of South Australia Mawson Lakes campus, Mawson Central Shopping Centre and the Parafield Airport, just 20 minutes from the CBD and close to the Edinburgh RAAF Base, Lyell McEwin Hospital and several major manufacturing and logistics centres.
This property designed for business and leisure travellers will house 130 guest rooms along with public areas including an open lobby, all-day dining restaurant and lobby bar, conference facilities and a gym.
Leanne Harwood, SVP Managing Director Japan, Australasia and Pacific, commented: “Being here today, announcing a state-of-the-art, new-build hotel with one of our great partners, Ross Pelligra, is incredible and a true testament to the trust and strength of our relationship.”
“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. It is an honour to be here today alongside Ross and his team and to be building on these foundations that we have built, together.”
“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.”
“We look forward to continuing to work with the local community and see the hotel take shape in the coming months.”
