Great big rooms! Comfy beds! The 'view' across Sandton wasn't much to write home about but the hotel is lovely. The bathrooms were spacious and the showers were hot and powerful! This hotel was a joy to come back to after a busy day shopping in the mall, which is accessible via a walkway for added safety. Breakfast was splendid!...

We've used this hotel a few times when passing thru Johannesburg. The staff are always very kind to us and cannot do enough. We've been fortunate at times to get access to the Club Lounge, with its lovely food spreads and great comfort. We love the superbly comfortable beds; the bathrooms are spacious and amenities are tops. Wandering around the...

What a way to end our trip would have liked another night just to soak up the 5 star service and facilities. Great location, with a internal sky bridge from the hotel to Sandton Mall which has everything from designer labels stores to inexpensive clothing store, restaurants, banks etc a one shop stop. The staff and service was fantastic...I was...
