Construction of the Courtyard Hotel Waterfall City in Midrand is nearing completion and the hotel is set to open in the first quarter of 2021.
The ten-storey hotel will feature a rooftop function area as well as a 100-seater conference facility. In addition to 164 rooms there are four suites, meeting rooms, a swimming pool and a gym and an independent restaurant on the ground level.
The rooftop restaurant and function area is a large, double-volume, modern space that makes the most of its lofty position to maximise the views across the city.
Also on the top floor, through a security-controlled doorway, are the four suites. Each suite accommodates two people and features a full bathroom with a bath, a small kitchenette and lounge area as well as a private patio area.
The City Lodge Hotel Group is established in the Waterfall City mixed-use commercial, retail, office and residential area with the City Lodge Hotel Waterfall City. The rapidly growing area includes the Mall of Africa shopping and entertainment complex, and draws both business and leisure travellers.
“Research indicates that this new concept Courtyard Hotel will be popular with our core market. The hospitality landscape has changed dramatically since we first conceived this hotel as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; however, the key offering remains in line with principal demand and trends, and we are looking forward to welcoming guests to this exciting new space,” said CEO of the group, Andrew Widegger.
Courtyard Hotel Waterfall City will be the sixth Courtyard Hotel within the group, adding to one each in Pretoria and Port Elizabeth and three in Johannesburg. Once it is operational, the group will have 63 hotels in six countries offering 8 070 rooms to business and leisure travellers.
