A new-concept Courtyard Hotel is set to open in Waterfall City in Johannesburg, with construction beginning in March and due to be completed in October 2020. Part of the City Lodge Hotel Group, this will be the sixth Courtyard Hotel to open.
The hotel will have 160 rooms and 8 suites over 10 floors, with meeting rooms, a swimming pool, a gym and a rooftop bar/function area. The Courtyard Hotel joins another City Lodge Hotel Group property in the Waterfall City precinct – the 149-room City Lodge Hotel. ‘’With the Waterfall City node growing strongly, we are extremely excited about the prospects for this Courtyard Hotel which will showcase a new concept which our research has shown will be popular with our core market,” CEO Andrew Widegger said.
Waterfall City is located in a fast-growing node between Johannesburg and Pretoria. This mixed-use development includes retail, residential and office areas, which has established a strong niche for both business and leisure travellers.
The City Lodge Hotel Group will be opening Town Lodge Umhlanga Ridge in July, developing a Road Lodge in Polokwane, and opening a City Lodge Hotel in Maputo in April. These establishments will bring the Group’s property total to 64 hotels in six countries in East and Southern Africa, with 8 160 rooms between them.
