If you like a bit of luxury when you travel, and you are headed to Adelaide in South Australia, there are three great hotels I can recommend that are all in the Adelaide CBD - so offer a great location - and will provide that little bit extra to make your stay comfortable with a few unique touches.
They are the Mayfair Hotel, Adelaide Oval Hotel and EOS - here is a bit about each.
The Mayfair Hotel is an excellent choice if you don't have a car on your visit. There is no parking garage on location to this very central city hotel - but it is located in the best location to walk the city and utilise the pubic transport. Located on the corner of King William Road and Hindley Street you are also on the intersection to the start of Rundle Mall - a pedestrian shopping mall in the city centre.
The main reason I rate this hotel in my top three luxury hotels in Adelaide is because the beds are amazing! They are the most comfortable bed I have every slept on and the linens are second to none. If you are after a great night's sleep you will get it at the Mayfair.
At the moment they also have an inclusive mini bar which sweetens the stay. Stocked with a few drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, along with some snacks and sweets this is a nice touch to enhance your stay.
The hotel opened it's doors in Adelaide in 2015 so is modern, clean and still relatively new.
Oval Hotel Adelaide
The Oval Hotel Adelaide not only is a luxury hotel but it is also a unique place to stay. The hotel forms part of the Adelaide Oval complex so for a sporting fan wanting to be close to the hallowed grounds of many sporting greats - this is the place to stay.
The bar at reception that offers a welcome drink upon arrival is a great touch to start your visit as you sip champagne whilst overlooking the grounds surrounding the oval and the beautiful Adelaide Cathedral.
The room is luxurious and welcoming and offers all the touches you would expect. The special part of this stay is a visit to the Bespoke Wine Bar and Kitchen for sundowners overlooking the stadium, the heritage score board and the hallowed turf.
The hotel opened in September 2020 in the height of the pandemic.
The newest of the three listed, EOS by Skycity opened it's doors in 2021 with 120 rooms of luxury as well as a rooftop bar and restaurant.
When you walk into a room and you are greeted with a majestic tub you know you are in for a good stay. There is something about a bathroom with a free standing tub, soft robes and fluffy slippers that says luxury.
Added to this the complimentary glass bottled water and locally sourced complimentary snacks in the mini bar there is no need to leave your room.
However if you do venture out you are within the Sky City casino complex and will find excellent dining options including ITL and SOL rooftop restaurant and bar.
