The premier airport hotel is 68.7m from the arrivals terminal and a short walk to the Gautrain station, from where a trip to Sandton's business and shopping centre takes 12 minutes. Once inside, the excellent soundproofing makes it impossible to imagine you are at Africa’s busiest airport. The plush rooms feature king-sized beds and this 24-hour hotel has a gym and spa overlooking the airport and runways. Float your cares away in the swimming pool with a superb view, or opt for drinks on the deck. The hotel interior has interesting African flourishes, including Cameroonian pygmy ceremonial wedding hats, while Quills restaurant is named for the 300 porcupine quills incorporated into the decor. The business centre and state-of-the-art conference facilities make this a perfect choice for ‘fly in, fly out’ business meetings. The hotel has two presidential suites. If you have time to kill at the airport pop in for a cocktail or two, the strawberry daiquiri is the best.
