The Rezidor Hotel Group continues its dominant roll-out on the African continent with the announcement that the 120-room Park Inn Cape Town Foreshore is scheduled to open in the last quarter of 2011. Park Inn by Radisson is Rezidor’s young and dynamic mid market brand – “and we are excited to bring it to Cape Town now on the back of the Sandton property which opened in Johannesburg earlier this year,” said Andrew McLachlan, Rezidor’s South African based vice-president for Business Development for Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands.
The new hotel – the conversion of an existing office building – will be situated on Heerengracht Street in the Foreshore precinct of Cape Town’s central business district, with excellent accessibility to key locations such as South Africa’s number one tourist drawcard, the Victoria & Albert Waterfront, and the Cape Town International Convention Centre which is less 250 meters from the hotel. Cape Town’s international airport can be reached conveniently in 20 minutes.
With 120 modern and colourful rooms, the Park Inn Cape Town Foreshore will feature the signature grill restaurant “RBG Restaurant & Bar”, a gym, a business centre, two rooftop conference rooms, four small breakaway rooms, an impressive rooftop terrace, bar and swimming pool providing spectacular views from Table Mountain across the Helderberg Mountain Range to Cape Town Harbour.
The hotel will carry the fresh and energetic branding of Park Inn by Radisson, which prides itself on mastering the essentials better than the competition and on offering a comfortable, hassle free stay with excellent value for money. McLachlan sees continued growth in the South African market for Park Inn by Radisson. “We create an affordable hotel experience that’s warm and casual, easy to use, safe and fun.”
