Oval Hotel will wrap around the stadium structure and offer 138 guest rooms.

Adelaide Oval will self-manage a 138-room premium boutique hotel currently under construction around its eastern façade, with an opening date scheduled for September 2020 in time for that year’s season of cricket and summer events.

To be known simply as Oval Hotel, the hotel has been designed to hug the outside edge of the stadium’s existing structure. A collection of renderings released this week reveal rooms will be generous in size, with a calming grey colour scheme and brightly lit through floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the surrounding parklands.

Rooms and public facilities will be designed to showcase South Australia’s food and wine scene, with General Manager Bodelle Francis saying the hotel’s look reflected its distinctive offering.

“We have chosen a name that is simple and strong and that we believe will establish Oval Hotel as a travel destination for South Australia and for Australia.

“Adelaide Oval is a world-famous stadium nestled inside nationally heritage-listed park lands, where the view looking out is just as inspiring as the view looking in,” Francis added.

Bookings at Oval Hotel will be opened from March 2020 ahead of its September opening.
