Ask any visitor that has been to Adelaide and they would have been to check out the Adelaide Central Markets, they are situated right in the heart of the Adelaide CBD. The Adelaide Central Market is one of Australia’s largest fresh produce markets, with over 8 million visitors passing through the market precinct each year.
These iconic markets were built back in 1869 and are often referred to as being one of Adelaide’s best known landmarks. The Adelaide Central Markets have become the main focal point of one of the Intercontinental Hotel Groups (IHG) latest hotel developments. The brand new Hotel Indigo will open its doors in 2020 and will no doubt be a huge benefit to the market precinct.
The boutique sixteen story hotel will be a brand new build, with construction set to commence in the coming months. This will become the first Hotel Indigo property in South Australia and the sixth signing for the brand in Australia.
Hotel Indigo is a hotel brand which prides itself on drawing upon inspiration from the local area to incorporate into various styling aspects to the hotel, all to help guests feel at one with the destination. The Adelaide Central Markets are a huge hive of activity, culture and connectivity that combined with its vibrant atmosphere makes it the perfect destination for a Hotel Indigo property to fit right in and incorporate itself into one of South Australia’s most popular tourist attractions.
The hotel will offer guests a choice of 137 rooms with large meeting spaces, gym, pool and sundeck. Hotel Indigo will draw on the personality through architectural design that will flow right through the whole hotel. With the one of Australia’s fresh produce markets on its doorstep it would only be fair that local, fresh South Australian produce will become an integral part to the hotels café and rooftop bar areas.
“Australia loves the Adelaide Central Markets, and for good reason. It’s a local destination that has developed its own distinct identity and culture, so we know that visitors will love a hotel that can capture that essence and deliver a unique experience. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the signing of Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets, an upper upscale accommodation for the inspired traveller. Hotel Indigo will complement IHG’s existing Holiday Inn Express, InterContinental and soon-to-open Crowne Plaza, giving travellers options to cater to every stay.” Said Abhijay Sandilya, IHG’s Senior Director of Development – Australasia
This brand new property is situated in the perfect location right in the heart of the Adelaide CBD and offers easy access to various corporate and leisure demand generators such as Chinatown, restaurants and retail areas all within close proximity to the hotel. It will be a hotel that I will be checking out once its completed in 2020.
