Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets

IHG’s boutique lifestyle brand has made a splash down under with the introduction of a stylish 145-room property next to Adelaide Central Market.

A trendy neighbourhood in Adelaide bears the distinction of welcoming the first Hotel Indigo-branded property in Australia. Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets is one of the most highly anticipated hospitality projects to hit the city in years.

Finding a home at Adelaide Market

The new Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets is the first hotel under IHG’s boutique lifestyle brand to open anywhere in Australia; this design-heavy boutique lifestyle property delivers a vibrant environment where local culture and history is married with contemporary flair and style. The scheme channels the site’s former life as a textile factory, and mixes heritage with modern architecture to create a truly unique hospitality venue, which is right by one of the city’s most important commercial centres, Adelaide Central Market.

Thomas Zinn, general manager of Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets, said: “Hotel Indigo has paved its way across the globe as a truly fascinating brand designed to draw inspiration and spark curiosity from the roots of its surrounding neighbourhoods. With our ideal location right next door to the iconic Adelaide Central Market and near the newly renovated Her Majesty’s Theatre, Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets is the perfect escape for visitors and locals looking for a new way to connect with Adelaide.”

Raw and Refined

Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets has a ‘Raw and Refined’ design ethos, which manifests itself in both the interiors and service offering.

Exposed brick in the common areas echoes the construction of the market buildings. Meanwhile, all 145 of the oversized guestrooms boast carefully curated posters and eye-catching headboards celebrating the renowned Adelaide Festival, along with copper fixtures and statement carpets complete with the tessellating tile pattern often seen on floors in the city’s houses.

The hotel, which includes 25 suites, also boasts Adelaide’s highest rooftop bar Merrymaker, allowing guests to look down on the city below and take in all the action as they enjoy locally produced wine or craft beer, and signature raw food made with fresh regional produce. Elsewhere, Market & Meander is an all-day dining venue on the ground floor, where guests can sample cuisine from around the world, as well as local fare.

In addition, there’s a 24-hour fitness centre, a 13-metre outdoor infinity pool and two boardrooms for meetings, while events can be held on either the mezzanine level or the rooftop.
