We visit Adelaide several times a year for work and have stayed in most of the highly rated hotels around town. The Sebel is our preferred because of its location and characterful service. Marco the concierge, and all his charming team, welcomes guests with a unique exuberance and from then service is equally efficient and friendly throughout the hotel from check in to restaurant and housekeeping. It always feels like the staff are having a grand old time and want you to too.
The rooms are fairly standard hotel issue, without many frills or pillow menus but they are comfortable, quiet and clean. Breakfast is very good and the buffet is comprehensive, fresh and replenished often (I loathe buffets but this is better than most). Eggs etc are cooked to order. Coffee is not so good.
The location is in mid North Terrace so the business areas are within walking distance, as is the shopping mall. The "red light district" (pretty tame - more of an amber really) is around the corner, and so is the lovely Leigh Street - a delightful pedestrian mall full of interesting places to eat and drink (Coffee Branch is highly recommended for all your hipster coffee needs and Udaberri for tapas and wine). The convention centre is across the road as is the railway station if you need it.
All in all a top place to stay.
