The 208-room Accra Marriott Hotel has opened in Ghana's capital, the first entry from Marriott in West Africa. The property is near Kotoka International Airport, in the heart of the urban development known as Airport City, and several miles from Accra's central business district.
The hotel offers three dining venues: Red Red, Sambra and Fammy's. There are nine indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, spanning a total of 17,000 square feet. Other features include an outdoor pool, a fully equipped fitness center and the Greatroom, an innovative open space that allow guests to seamlessly blend work and play.
"We are thrilled to open the Accra Marriott Hotel, a highly anticipated addition to our Africa portfolio and a significant milestone in our journey," said Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International. "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."
