IHG Hotels & Resorts and the Pelligra Group have announced their new partnership, Holiday Inn & Suites Mawson Lakes, slated to open in 2024. It will be IHG’s fifth hotel in Adelaide, Australia.
Located in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, just 20 minutes from the central business district, the 130-room hotel will feature all the Holiday Inn brand hallmarks, including an open lobby, as well as an all-day dining restaurant and lobby bar, conferencing facilities and gymnasium.
Nearby the hotel is the University of South Australia Mawson Lakes campus, with Mawson Central Shopping Centre, Parafield Airport, Edinburgh RAAF Base and Lyell McEwin Hospital all within close proximity.
The Pelligra Group is one of IHG’s largest partners in Australasia, with six hotels now open or signed – the brand-new Holiday Inn Werribee in 2021; the 2019 lease to refurbish Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport; and the upcoming Holiday Inn Melbourne Richmond, Crowne Plaza Melbourne Carlton and Holiday Inn Dandenong to open in 2023.
Ross Pelligra, CEO of Pelligra Group, stated the deal signing was just the start of a string of new hotel developments the Group plans to announce with IHG. “We are so proud to be growing with IHG Hotels & Resorts – in fact in just five years we signed six amazing hotels, with two already open. And I don’t see it stopping there. We would love to add another 20 to 30 hotels across IHG’s brand portfolio in the future, so I can only say: get ready for more to come.”
Leanne Harwood, IHG’s SVP managing director, Japan, Australasia and Pacific, commented: “Holiday Inn & Suites Mawson Lakes will perfectly complement our existing hotels: InterContinental Adelaide, Crowne Plaza Adelaide, Hotel Indigo Adelaide and Holiday Inn Express Adelaide City Centre. We look forward to continuing to work with the local community and see the hotel take shape in the coming months.”
