King William Street in Adelaide’s Central Business District,
becoming a new icon for the city.

skyscraper is being developed by Equinox Property and will
comprise some 347 rooms and suites.

investment, with new infrastructure projects such as the expansion
of Adelaide Airport, the revamp of the Adelaide Oval, and now, the
creation of one of the city’s tallest hotels,” said Joon Aun Ooi,
President, Asia Pacific, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “We are excited
to be part of this prestigious project. Wyndham Grand is known for
its iconic locations, so I can think of no better way to introduce
the brand to Australia.”
The Wyndham Grand Adelaide will feature an infinity
pool with a sun deck and bar, a
day spa with sauna and treatment rooms, a fitness center, and a
wide range of F&B outlets,
Development of Wyndham Grand
