InterContinental Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport

O.R. Tambo Airport, Johannesburg, Gauteng, 1619, South Africa

A few paces from international arrivals and adjacent to the car-rental companies, this is a good choice for those who have a one-night layover. The InterContinental is very comfortable and upscale, with a chic African interior of warm woods and granite. Those who spend a few nights here do so for the business and meeting facilities and proximity to industrial areas, though it's also a quick 12-minute ride on the high-speed Gautrain into the center of Sandton from the airport. Rooms are soundproof and have blackout curtains, and the 8th-floor heated pool, gym, and spa offers jet-lag-specific treatments, and there are great runway views from the gym and pool. The Quills bar on the ground level serves meals 24 hours.

PROS

  • ideal for those who don't need to go into Johannesburg or who have a layover before a connecting flight
  • free Wi-Fi
  • free meet-and-greet service with escort to the hotel

CONS

  • large and impersonal
  • you won't see much of Johannesburg without leaving the hotel
