Protea Hotels and Marriott Bonvoy Unveil Orlando Pirates Rooms
Protea Hotels by Marriott and Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott International’s travel programme and marketplace, have unveiled Orlando Pirates F.C themed rooms, designed to give football enthusiasts a unique and immersive hospitality experience.
Available at the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! by Marriott Johannesburg Melrose Arch, the Orlando Pirates-themed rooms are a must-visit for all fans of the club.
Created by local interior designer, Latoyah Mei, the room is adorned with symbolic black and white stripes showcasing the club’s proud heritage and success over the years.
Guests will be welcomed with an iconic mural featuring some of the most legendary players to have graced the fields and hearts of many in the club’s history.
Along with modern amenities, the rooms will also feature football memorabilia and natural elements to create a space that is minimal and contemporary.
The themed room serves as a creative celebration of local design, following a request to qualifying South African interior designers based on their experience and expertise, to partake in the Protea Hotels by Marriott and Marriott Bonvoy Orlando Pirates Room Designs. A shortlist of four designers were invited to submit their storyboards.
Ultimately, Latoyah Mei founder of Lint Design House was the successful candidate and was selected by the partnership parties, as the official interior designer of the unique Orlando Pirates themed room. Mei’s inspiration was to create a nostalgic atmosphere for the room to evoke a “wow factor” feeling in fans.
The launch of the themed rooms follows the announcement of Marriott Bonvoy’s exclusive multi-year partnership to become the official accommodation partner of Orlando Pirates Football Club last year.
The partnership offers fans incredible opportunities to experience football in South Africa at a whole new level through unrivalled and exclusive access and events. Fans can now get 15% off standard rates when they book at participating hotels across South Africa.
The Orlando Pirates-themed rooms at the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Johannesburg Melrose Arch are now available for booking. To book visit Marriott.com
