The Grace Hotel (Johannesburg) is closing

The Grace Hotel in Rosebank, which has been one of the best places to stay in Johannesburg for many years, will close this month. Seems that a bunch of high-end hotels opened for the World Cup, and The Grace apparently has not been able to compete. Unfortunate; it was a nice place to stay.

Darn! That was a wonderful place! It was also handy for the Sunday Market at the mall next door.

I'm sorry to read The Grace is closing.
My husband and I have stayed there twice and really liked the cozy, colonial atmosphere of the rooms and the friendliness of the staff.

The mall next door was handy for picking up any last-minute necessities before heading out on safari.

Ohhh how heartbreaking!!! It was such a welcoming place after the long flights, with everything at your disposal nearby (on foot)!

Looks like it... the Grace's address was 54 Bath St. It's nice to see that it's open for business again.
