The Premier Hotel Group took the opportunity to announce the launch of a new airport hotel in Johannesburg at Meetings Africa this week.
Situated just 500 metres from the Gautrain station and 1.2km from the terminals, the Premier Hotel OR Tambo International will have a soft opening in time for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup.
Premier Hotel & Resorts MD Samuel Nassimov said the 280 full – service hotel may be ready to open as early as next month.
“Far from being just a lay-over, the Premier Hotel OR Tambo will provide all the services and style necessary to make for a comfortable travel experience.
“In airline speak it’s a business class hotel which full compliments our existing brand.”
Costing over R300 million, the new hotel will offer free wi-fi, a spa, swimming pool deck, gym, restaurant, two bars and 24-hour room service.
The hotel will also feature a large conference centre, with nine conference rooms and boardrooms, able to hold up to 800 delegates cinema-style.
Nassimov continued, “ OR Tambo International is becoming a hub for conventions as delegates are able to fly in and do their business without having to get into the traffic.”
The Premier Hotel Group has expanded its portfolio to include hotels in Cape Town, Pretoria, Pinetown and the South Coast as well as the recent opening of a five-star property in Knysna on the Garden Route.
