Marriott Hotels, part of Marriott International, has announced its debut in West Africa with the opening of Accra Marriott Hotel, owned by African Hospitality Limited.
With the charms of tropical paradise, historical heritage, cultural variety and abundant wildlife, the Republic of Ghana welcomes the modern offerings of Marriott International with the Accra Marriott Hotel.
Located just opposite the Kotoka International Airport, the new Accra Marriott Hotel promises to be a “Gateway to West Africa”. It’s set in the heart of Airport City, an urban development which houses the first ever commercial building in the area. The hotel is just a few miles outside of the central business district, providing easy access to major corporate businesses, government entities, and city landmarks.
“We are thrilled to open the Accra Marriott Hotel, a highly anticipated addition to our Africa portfolio and a significant milestone in our journey,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, the Middle East and Africa, Marriott International.
Accra Marriott Hotel has 208 rooms, 3 dining venues, an 800-square-metre meeting space, a pool and fully-equipped fitness centre. And to blend with its surrounding environment, it features a contemporary design fused with local design touches. The hotel represents a modern Ghana, with its amenity-filled guest rooms, progressive dining, cutting-edge technology, and flexible meeting facilities. It’s modern and sophisticated in its approach, keeping balance in mind.
It makes an interesting travel destination both for business and for leisure
“Accra is the heartbeat of Ghana, a dynamic city bustling with energy. A commercial, manufacturing, and communications centre with great shopping and excellent nightlife, it makes an interesting travel destination both for business and for leisure,” added Kyriakidis.
The Accra Marriott Hotel is designed to cater to mobile and global travellers. It offers the ease of mobile check-in and Mobile Guests Services, seamlessly delivered with Marriott Hotels service.
Kyriakidis further said: “The Accra Marriott Hotel will add to the city’s maturing hospitality scene, inspiring guests with more forward-thinking experiences and aesthetically inspiring spaces that speak to their inventive nature.”
