Adelaide Oval’s new hotel to accept bookings from March 2020

Adelaide Oval’s new hotel to accept bookings from March 2020
October 14, 2019

With major works for the development of the Adelaide Oval Hotel having starting on-site at the end of last week, it has been revealed that the facility will start taking bookings from March 2020 ahead of its opening before the ICC T20 World Cup in September.

Commenting on the progress of the project, South Australian Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government, Stephan Knoll advised “the Adelaide Oval Hotel will help cement the Oval as a world-class stadium and improve South Australia’s tourism offerings.

“With major works beginning on-site today, after weeks of off-site and on-site activity, it is a clear sign that this project is full steam ahead.

“The foundational work we’re seeing today is a critical part of the build process and the hotel will now very quickly start to take shape.

“The Stadium Management Authority are building a team of talented people to run and manage the hotel.

“Bodelle Francis has been appointed Adelaide Oval Hotel’s General Manager and brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the role.”

The hotel is being built on two elevated pods that follow the external curves of the eastern façade of the venue so as not to encroach on the adjacent parklands or the plaza.

Minimising the impact of construction on patrons will remain a priority throughout the build and the schedule has been specifically designed to achieve this priority.
