Tsogo Sun to Open New 500 Room Hotel Complex in Cape Town
Tsogo Sun has reached agreement with the owners of the site of the recently demolished Tulip hotel for the construction of an exciting new 500-bedroom hotel.
The new hotel complex will be located in Cape Town city centre on the corner of Buitengracht and Strand Street, for a total investment of R680 million.
The new hotel will consist of two products in one complex, a 200-bedroom latest-design SunSquare hotel and a 300-bedroom new generation StayEasy hotel, offering a choice of affordable and stylish accommodation.
Included in the complex will be banqueting and conference facilities, Tsogo Sun’s trendy and fast growing casual dining offering Vigour & Verve, retail space and approximately 300 underground parking bays. The hotel site currently includes a heritage façade which will be retained.
Construction is expected to begin in May 2015 and to be completed by September 2017, in time for peak summer tourist season.
