We stayed at the Adelphi for our one year wedding anniversary and were thoroughly impressed. The hotel is in the perfect location, within walking distance to many restaurants, shops and federation square. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive, they recommended some great restaurants to try and also booked us dinner, the concierge service was excellent.
The hotel is tasteful and modern, the decor is great and the room we stayed in was large, clean and beautiful. The free minbar and complimentary sweet treats were a great touch. The bed was insanely comfortable. There was also a large selection of movies to view free of charge, the room was so great that it made it hard to leave!
We did also try the dessert bar downstairs, and although it was a nice experience the desserts were a bit overpriced. Having a cocktail there before heading to our room was a nice way to end our night, the bar is open late and is very lively, also with great decor and atmosphere. They do make a pretty good coffee too.
As it was rather cold when we visited, September, we didn't use the pool, but we visited the pool deck and it was a great spot.
The only draw back is the sound proofing in rooms, we could hear when the room next door to us opened their blinds in the morning. One of the nights we were there (we stayed on a long weekend) there was some sort of party happening in a building located down the alleyway that our room faced, the noise from party goers was quiet loud up til about 4am. I am not sure if this is a regular occurrence or just a once off private party, at other times it was very quiet.
Overall I would not hesitate to stay at the Adelphi again, it really made our first anniversary a memorable experience.
