ADELAIDE - A US$1 million refurbishment of the top floor function and events space at the Pullman Adelaide Hotel has been given the go ahead, with works set to commence in December this year.

As part of the 5-star repositioning of the property, this major upgrade of this top floor space will mark an important milestone for the hotel since transitioning to Accor's Pullman Hotels & Resorts brand, from Crowne Plaza, late in 2017.

Owner, Hines Property, engaged global design studio, Woods Bagot, for the project and appointed Shape as lead contractor.

THE MAKEOVER

The 15th floor will receive a complete makeover, including new wall coverings, extensive use of stone, custom flooring, specialist lighting and state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment.

The main ballroom, capable of hosting functions for up to 400 attendees, and divisible into up to four smaller rooms, will be upgraded, as well as the unique corner boardroom. The rooms will benefit from the latest audio-visual technology and lighting controls.

The main ballroom can host up to 400 guests.

The pre-function space will feature a refurbished bar facility and bi-fold doors to a balcony overlooking Hindmarsh Square.

Following its upgrade, the top floor will provide a premier function and events space for Adelaide, benefitting from the 5-star service and contemporary food and beverage offering of Pullman Hotels & Resorts.

WHAT THEY SAY 

Pullman Adelaide's general manager Llewellyn Wyeth said that the soon-to-be enhanced conferencing space will reflect the hotel's repositioning as a luxury hotel and will be a unique conferencing and event space in the Adelaide market given the outlook from the function spaces to Hindmarsh Square and beyond.

"The unique aspect from our top floor function space is the amazing views across Hindmarsh Square, now that the meeting rooms will benefit from this aspect via the new glazed façade, the space will be perfectly suited to business events and meetings, whilst capturing the ambience and design qualities suitable for personable functions such as weddings and celebrations," he added.

"We are excited to be embarking on this new project with our hotel owner, Hines Property, and we are looking forward to welcoming new business to enjoy our brand-new seamless conferencing facilities from early 2020."
