Fodor's Expert Review The Playford Adelaide
120 North Terr., Adelaide, South Australia, 5000, Australia Fodor's Choice
MGallery Hotels are always a bit special and the Playford proves the rule with showy chandeliers that illuminate a movie-set-like celebration of art nouveau in the lobby of this luxury hotel. Check your reflection in a huge gilt mirror before relaxing in a club lounge or around the grand piano in the bar, where the tables have statue bases and marble tops. Room decorations are a subtler nod to the art nouveau era. In the unusual loft suites, wrought-iron stairs climb to a king-size bed on the mezzanine floor and offer great value for the price. The colonnaded indoor hotel pool feels like a Roman bathhouse.
