IHG and TCC Land International have announced that the 1988-built hotel, which rebranded as InterContinental Adelaide in 2009, will undergo an extensive renovation from late 2021.

The landmark hotel will remain open throughout the transformation period – the first major renovation in its history.

Reinventing one of Australia’s finest hotels

Hotel operator IHG and asset management company TCC Land International have together outlined plans for an AUS$32 million investment into the 367-room InterContinental Adelaide.

Michael Gaedtke, general manager of InterContinental Adelaide, said: “InterContinental Adelaide has been one of the city’s most-loved and iconic luxury hotels for many years, hosting travellers from around the world.

“We know that South Aussies have a great pride in our iconic, vibrant hotel with its riverbank location and views directly over the Torrens and Adelaide Oval, and we recognise the responsibility that comes with that. This renovation affirms our commitment to South Australian tourism, and demonstrates support for the government’s focus on growing the state’s share of high-yielding domestic and international visitors.”

Leanne Harwood, managing director for Australasia and Japan at IHG, added: “InterContinental Adelaide is consistently ranked as one of IHG’s top hotels from a guest satisfaction perspective, and we know that travellers will be excited to see the new product once it’s complete.

“We are so pleased that TCC Land International is investing in the future of this great property, the hotel industry, and South Australian tourism. We have no doubt that InterContinental Adelaide will continue to define itself as one of Adelaide’s most iconic luxury hotels.”

Upgraded facilities and new services

The major refurbishment will include the redesign of the property’s 367 guestrooms and suites, along with upgrades to the event space, a refreshed restaurant and bar, a new InterContinental Club Lounge space and enhancements to teppanyaki restaurant Shiki. The entrance, lobby, hallways and lifts will also benefit from a facelift, while new services and amenities will include refined culinary experiences, an impressive event offering and technology-enabled facilities for both business and leisure.

The property is known for hosting some of the world’s biggest names, with notable past guests including The Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Hillary Clinton and the Australian and Indian cricket teams. First built in 1988, the hotel rebranded to become InterContinental Adelaide in 2009.

Following the announcement of this project, the team is now looking to appoint a project manager and interior designer. The scheme is expected to complete in early 2023.
