This swish, five-star boutique hotel has become the preferred choice of visiting rock stars and celebrities since opening in 2015, and it's not hard to see why: the place just oozes bespoke luxury. The 170 stylish rooms feature custom made “Mayfair Signature” mattresses (which you can buy, natch) and Apelles Apothecary toiletries, while the much lauded Mayflower restaurant and two bars serve up Wedgwood crockery and Riedel and Waterford marque crystal glassware. The hotel even smells luxurious - it has a custom made “signature scent” inspired by Chanel perfume. Located in the centre of the CBD where shopping strip Rundle Mall meets bar and dining strip Hindley Street, and just a short walk from Adelaide's cultural boulevard North Terrace, it's perfectly situated for exploring the city on foot. That's if you ever want to leave.
Time Out tip: Head to the Hennessy rooftop bar (named for the original architect of the 1930s heritage listed building, not the cognac beloved by hip-hop stars) and try a Honey Trap Cocktail – it's made with honey collected from the hotel's own rooftop hives of Ligurian bees.
