The future Crowne will feature 326 rooms with check-in on level 10.
The Crowne is expected to draw easy business from growing tourism numbers, according to Adelaide’s Lord Mayor Martin Haese.
“With record numbers of interstate and international visitors, the City of Adelaide will benefit from more internationally-recognised hotel brands, like Crowne Plaza, to cater for increased demand.”

“We are confident that Crowne Plaza Adelaide will capitalise on strong corporate, conference and leisure demand,” IHG senior development director Abhijay Sandilya said.
The Crowne will reportedly share the hotel spotlight in Adelaide with the Sofitel brand, who recently signed with Accor to manage a $140 million hotel that will be developed by Adelaide-based Palumbo group.
Similar to Crowne, the Sofitel will also feature private residential apartments to accompany its 257 hotel rooms, which are due for construction in May this year.
The hotel is expected to be open for business by 2020.
