The first images have been released by Event Hospitality showcasing the second of three new properties joining the company’s Independent Collection in Adelaide as part of its management agreement with 208 South Terrace Pty Ltd.
Following an extensive redesign and renovation by Studio Nine Architects, Event Hospitality has unveiled ‘HotelMotel, under which it says it is aiming to redefine motel accommodation in Australia. Located opposite Adelaide Park, the new HotelMotel features 61 rooms which have received an entirely new look, with bright orange doors and matted navy and black finishes.
Inside, guests will have access to a Smart TV, minibar, free WiFi, espresso machine with coffee pods, bathroom amenities and a hairdryer. Check-in can be completed using the HotelMotel smartphone app, which also allows guests to order share plates and dishes for room service. The new property will be led by Sam Farrington as General Manager, who was appointed earlier this year to oversee the three properties in a cluster role.
The arrival of HotelMotel follows the introduction earlier this year of The Terrace Hotel Adelaide – the first of the three new additions to the Independent Collection under the new management deal which saw a total of 208 rooms added to the burgeoning stable. In partnership with hotel owners, Event Hospitality embarked on an AUD$15 million renovation project which has seen new operating brands rolled out now to two of the three new-look properties.
Event Hospitality Director of Hotels and Resorts, Norman Arundel, said the latest addition to The Independent Collection offers unbelievable value for guests.
“HotelMotel shares the same passion for hospitality, service and quality that the Independent Collection in renowned for, whilst showcasing individuality and providing a unique guest experience,” Arundel said.
Event Hospitality is expected to unveil the final piece in the puzzle in the coming months as renovations at The Chifley Hotel reach a conclusion. Once complete, guests staying at any of the three South Terrace properties will be able to access integrated services and facilities across the trio.
