IHG Hotels & Resorts has opened the newly refurbished Holiday Inn Johannesburg Sunnyside Park Hotel situated in the leafy suburb of Parktown, Johannesburg.
Offering authentic experiences designed to bring friends, family and business partners together for genuine and joyful memories, the hotel is the first Holiday Inn property in South Africa recognized as a Heritage site, with national monument status.
Designed as a neo-queen Anne style suburban villa, Holiday Inn Johannesburg Sunnyside Park Hotel offers 152 well-appointed bedrooms, including a variety of suites.
The décor combines old world charm with modern amenities, offering a taste of the past with a blend of new era architecture. Wooden-panelling and pressed ceilings form part of the lounge area which enable guests to unwind over a crackling fire.
The hotel was originally built in 1895 and has many features complimenting the picturesque property; a fitness centre, outdoor pool and business centre. The gardens cover four acres and include tranquil Koi ponds that cascade through flowing fountains beside 150-year old trees.
Dining options include Milner’s Restaurant offerring a selection of “a la carte” options as well as a generous buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Pound & Penny - an English-style pub - caters to the pub-fare-loving patron with traditional dishes.
Located a mere 25-minute drive from OR Tambo International airport, the hotel is situated close to the Central Business Districts of Johannesburg and Sandton and easily accessible to corporate offices, universities, hospitals and major highways.
