Tsogo Sun’s new dual-brand 19-storey hotel in Cape Town’s flourishing and vibrant City Bowl celebrated its opening on 28 September with a glittering launch. The R700-million development incorporates two economy hotels, the select service SunSquare Cape Town City Bowl with 202 bedrooms and StayEasy Cape Town City Bowl with 302 bedrooms bringing the total number of rooms operated by Tsogo Sun in the city centre to over 2 000.
The Cape Town City Bowl is an ideal location for easy access to innumerable attractions, as well as the now world-renowned Bree Street, which has overtaken other areas as the city’s “coolest strip when it comes to eating opportunities” according EatOut.co.za. The new dual-brand hotel is located on the corners of Bree, Strand and Buitengracht, offering convenient access to the beautiful surroundings, the vibrant restaurant district, Table Mountain Cable Way and the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
Jacques Booysen, Group CEO of Tsogo Sun, says, “These two hotels have been developed in response to a growth trend in the mid-market hotel sector in South Africa and offer excellent style and functionality, representing the next generation of room design and offering superb accommodation, great location and good pricing. We are committed to delivering what customers want in style and product”.
The SunSquare hotel has five banqueting and conference venues, the largest of which caterers for up to 140 delegates; the 14 Stories Rooftop Bar and pool, with a spectacular vista of almost 300o panoramic views that include the harbour, Lion’s Head, Signal Hill, Table Mountain, and the stadium; retail space; a fitness centre; and a trendy Vigour & Verve casual dining offering.
