Recommentations on Johannesburg airport hotel?

I will need to spend a night after a long flight at Johannesburg before continuing the trip next morning.
I was thinking about staying at one of the airport hotels.
The Intercontinental is attractive as it is right in the airport, but it seems to be expensive: about US$130 a room. It seems to be too high for the airport hotel, expecially in South Africa.
I've also found Holiday Inn, The Airport Grand Hotel and a few others offering much more reasonable rates with 5 minute cab ride from the airport.
Anybody has any input on this? Are the areas close to the airport safe?
Any information will be helpful.

We stayed at the Ceasars airport Hotel which is a few minutes from the airport and the hotel provides a free shuttle. There are 2 parts to the hotel, the 3 star Senator and the 5 star Emperor linked by a huge entertainment/shopping/restaurant/casino complex. We stayed in the Senator which was about $70 a night (including breakfast)and were extremely happy with the accommodation and service. They have very large family suites and twin rooms for the same price. Not only was the accommodation great but there is a lot to do there without leaving the grounds. There is also a health spa and indoor pool and while the prices for treatments and massages are probably high by South african standards, they are very reasonable by American standards. I would try to book a massage when booking your room. Just think of the luxury of having a massage after a long flight! There are also a number of restaurants, from quick eating, to buffet to excellent restaurants.
