Best Area of Joburg

I am accompanying my husband on a three day business trip to Johannesburg and would like to stay in a place close to the arts and entertainment scene and safe enough for me to go shopping etc. on my own. Cost is not an issue, the trip is paid for... which hotels/areas should we consider.

Any other information about the city would also be great.

If cost is not an issue, we stayed at the Michaelangelo in the Sandton suburb of Joburg last year, and it was vey nice and we felt very safe. It is also directly attached to the Sandton Square shopping mall.

Anyplace in the suburb of Sandton will be just what you want. Besides the Michaelangelo, the Sandton Sun is also connected to Sandton City mall.

For shopping, also try the mall in Rosebank. There is a street market on Saturday mornings near the Market Theatre, full of things from all over Africa, but the area is not very nice. If you go, take someone with you.
