IHG Hotels & Resorts’ boutique lifestyle brand, Hotel Indigo, has made its Australian debut with the opening of Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets on 1st March.

Located next to the lively Adelaide Central Market, and housed on the site of a former textile factory, this highly anticipated 145-key hotel boasts intriguing design features, and an exemplary F&B offering.

The property adopts a “Raw and Refined” design ethos that celebrates the neighbourhood’s commercial past with an exciting blend of heritage-listed and modern architecture, as well as eye-catching contemporary design features.

Its public spaces feature striking brick archways mimicking those in Adelaide Central Market, colourful street art-inspired murals by acclaimed Australian collage artists including Tristan Kerr, and an exposed terracotta brick feature wall etched with intriguing neighbourhood references such as “Six o’clock Swill” and “Mad March” – the name given to Festival month in the city.

The hotel champions local producers in its two restaurants, Market & Meander Eatery and Bar, as well as rooftop raw food bar, Merrymaker, which stands as the highest rooftop bar in Adelaide.

“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," comments Thomas Zinn, General Manager, Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets. "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.”

In addition to a well-equipped 24/7 fitness centre, the hotel features a 13 metre outdoor infinity pool, two boardroom-style meeting rooms and the option to hold events on the mezzanine level and rooftop.
