The Playford Adelaide - MGallery
The Playford MGallery is a boutique hotel in the heart of Adelaide which offers the perfect blend of classical style and contemporary luxury. Located only 9km from Adelaide International Airport, this hotel has a stunning Art Nouveau ambience and features 182 beautifully appointed guestrooms and suites, luxurious amenities and exquisite cuisine. Ideally located opposite The Convention Centre, Casino, Adelaide Oval and within close walking proximity to central business district.
The site of The Playford hotel was once home to Rupert Murdoch and his Adelaide newspaper ‘The News’. The original building was demolished in 1997 after a devastating fire. From these ashes rose the vision to create Australia’s first genuine Arts hotel and upon completion The Playford quickly took pride of place as the jewel of Adelaide.
When the hotel opened its doors in 1998, the Sparr family paid tribute to Adelaide’s progressive history by sharing its name with the state’s former premier, Sir Thomas Playford. During his term as premier between 1938 and 1965, Sir Playford oversaw major population and economic gains that helped shape the city of Adelaide into what it is today.
The Playford now stands on one of Adelaide’s most beautiful and cultural tree-lined boulevards. It is within walking distance of major tourist attractions including Adelaide Oval, Adelaide Convention Centre, Art Gallery, the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and leading educational institutions. Its location is ideal to explore all that the city has to offer including Adelaide’s booming nearby small bar and dining scene.
