Owned by African Hospitality Limited, the hotel is strategically located opposite the Kotoka International Airport, making it the perfect ‘Gateway to West Africa’.
Set in the heart of Airport City, a burgeoning urban development, the Accra Marriott Hotel is just a few kilometres outside of the central business district providing easy access to major corporate businesses, government entities and well known city landmarks.
Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International, said: “We are thrilled to open the Accra Marriott Hotel, a highly anticipated addition to our Africa portfolio and a significant milestone in our journey.
“Accra is the heartbeat of Ghana, a dynamic city bustling with energy. A commercial, manufacturing, and communications center with great shopping and excellent nightlife, it makes an interesting travel destination both for business and for leisure.
“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.”
The property includes 208 well-appointed rooms, three dining venues, 800 square metres of meeting space, a pool and a fully equipped fitness centre. The hotel’s contemporary design and local touches complement its amenity-filled guest rooms, progressive dining, cutting edge technology and flexible meeting facilities.
