The hotel is a welcoming suburban Shangri-la with Joburg’s regenerated city neighbourhoods on its doorstep. The revamp involved ditching the former Westcliff Hotel’s colonial nostalgia, replacing it with contemporary South African art, ballroom carpeting designed to resemble a jacaranda-strewn city (Joburg's spring colours) and an impressive sheer glass edifice housing elevators to what was formerly The Polo Lounge. That favoured spot is now View, a fine dining restaurant while next door is Flames, a contemporary grill house with expansive patio space from which to admire incredible sunset views.
The guest rooms feature contemporary decor inspired by modern Africa, each with a garden terrace or balcony. With it’s view over the Johannesburg Zoo, don’t be surprised to hear an occasional lion’s roar as the sun sets.
