Originally planned as a 130-room Holiday Inn & Suites, the property has undergone an upscaled transformation during development and will now be launched in the second half of 2024 as Crowne Plaza Mawson Lakes.
IHG Hotels & Resorts, Pelligra Group and ONE7 say the elevated positioning of the property is due to high demand from corporate, leisure and conference and events customers.
The hotel will feature 155 rooms, three meeting spaces across 442 square metres, a fitness centre, bar and restaurant.
“We are already proud to operate three amazing Holiday Inn hotels in Werribee, Dandenong and Melbourne Airport, with Crowne Plaza Carlton poised to open this year,” says Ross Pelligra, chairman of Pelligra Group.
“Now we’re excited to expand the IHG brand portfolio to include our second Crowne Plaza in Adelaide.”
Matt Tripolone, managing director for IHG Hotels & Resorts Australasia and Pacific, says he is excited for the future of the Crowne Plaza brand in the South Australian capital.
“IHG and Pelligra Group share a remarkable partnership, operating three hotels together with three more in the pipeline,” he says.
“We are delighted Ross and the Pelligra team envision such a positive outlook for the premium travel segment in Australia, leading them to invest in elevating this asset to the premium sector.
“This move brings exceptional iterations of the Crowne Plaza brand to Adelaide.”
