Fodor's Review

The super-sophisticated e-butler service in the foyer is enough to get excited about—and that's before you've even set foot in the rooms. Since the hotel is linked to the Cape Town International Convention Centre, rooms are geared toward working guests, but that doesn't mean they're spartan. The decor is modern minimalist with touches of African creativity, perhaps in pillowcases or a quirky wall color. Workstations are cleverly partitioned away from the sleeping area,

so even if you have to burn the midnight oil, you can do it in comfort and style. Everything glides and whirls at the touch of a button, and service is seamless. Take special note of the artwork in the lobby and foyer area. This hotel group collects and supports local art. Don't miss the spa at the top of the hotel or a water-taxi ride from the hotel to the Waterfront.
