The Capital Hotel Group will launch two hotels this year: The Capital Menlyn Maine in Tshwane and the Capital on Park in Sandton, Johannesburg.
The Capital Menlyn Maine will open partially on 15 March 2017, with a launch event on 15 May, when the penthouse suites and two top floors will be available. It will feature 200 one-, two- and three-bedroom hotel apartments, with a 240-seat conference centre that can be split into three and can accommodate up to 80 people in banquet or classroom style. A 50-seat breakaway room, two meeting rooms and an events deck with a purpose-designed marquee that can accommodate up to 450 delegates will also be available.
The hotel’s standard rooms will feature one bedroom, an en-suite bathroom equipped with a bath, shower and toilet, a lounging area, kitchen with a nook (table) and an add-on second bedroom with an en-suite bathroom – with a shower and toilet – and two single beds.
The 280-seat, in-house Koi Restaurant will cater for the public and also serve room service and daily breakfast.
Capital on Park on Katherine Street in Sandton will launch late in 2017. Marc Wachsberger, Capital Hotel Group MD said: “The hotel will be one of the largest conferencing hotels, with over 500 seats for conferencing and meetings. It will offer 240 one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as penthouse suites.
“We also plan to launch a hotel in Umhlanga (Durban) and we are working on buying some land. We will have the hotel up and running in the next two years,” concluded Wachsberger.
