236

Tsogo Sun’s new dual-brand 19-storey hotel opened in Cape Town’s City Bowl last week.

The R700-million ($51m) development incorporates two economy hotels, the select service SunSquare Cape Town City Bowl with 202 bedrooms, and the StayEasy Cape Town City Bowl with 302 bedrooms.

This brings the total number of rooms operated by the group in the Cape Town city centre to over 2,000, spread across six hotels.

The SunSquare hotel has five banqueting and conference venues, the largest of which caters for up to 140 delegates; a fitness centre; a Vigour & Verve casual dining offering; and the Rooftop Bar and pool, with a vista of almost 300o panoramic views that include the harbour, Lion’s Head, Signal Hill, Table Mountain, and Cape Town stadium.

The StayEasy hotel has a dedicated breakfast restaurant and offers access to all the facilities on the complex.

The property also includes undercover parking for 300 vehicles.

The hotel is located on the corners of Bree, Strand and Buitengracht streets, offering convenient access to the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town Stadium, and Cape Town International Convention Centre.

The development of two economy hotels opens access to a wider market sector, as previously four and five-star hotels were predominant in the area.
