Protea Hotels by Marriott International to open its second hotel in Ghana

Published on : Thursday, December 6, 2018

Protea Hotels by Marriott announced the signing of Protea Hotel by Marriott Accra, Kotoka Airport, the brand’s second hotel in Ghana and the first Protea Hotel by Marriott in the capital city of Accra.

 

 

Owned by Baobab Hotels & Resorts which is a subsidiary of the YAMUSAH Group, the hotel will be strategically located in the prestigious airport residential area of Accra.  A mere 1.5 kilometers from the Kotoka International Airport, the hotel is also in close proximity to key diplomatic, government and commercial nodes.

 

 

“Continuing economic growth in Africa is driving greater investment in the continent, and Ghana is proving to be particularly attractive as an investment destination.

 

 

Volker Heiden, Vice President Protea Hotels by Marriott, Marriott International, Middle East and Africa said that the hotel will meet the rising demand for quality lodging in the city, catering to both the business as well as the leisure traveller.

 

 

According to Mr. Zibrim Yamusah, President and CEO of The YAMUSAH Group, they are pleased to partner with Marriott International to bring the Protea Hotels by Marriott brand to Accra. The brand’s strong regional equity and awareness coupled with the global distribution of Marriott International and the strength of its loyalty program, we believe, are a powerful combination that will help position the hotel and drive business.

 

Protea Hotel by Marriott Accra Kokota Airport will be a 17-story, 200-room hotel offering a restaurant, a lobby bar and lounge, small conference and meeting facilities, an air crew lounge, a gymnasium and a roof-top pool bar and lounge with uninterrupted views of the city. With its strategic location and the range of facilities it will offer, the hotel will be ideal for business and leisure travelers, as well as airline crew and the local community.

 

 

Protea Hotel by Marriott Accra Kotoka Airport is expected to open by end of 2019.
