Marriott International, in partnership with Sunshine Business, has opened Africa’s first Marriott Executive Apartments in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The Marriott Executive Apartments Addis Ababa will appeal to both business and family travellers with 108 fully serviced apartments offering space, ambience and the privacy of residential living enabling a comfortable stay away from home.
Located in the heart of Ethiopia’s capital, the Marriott Executive Apartments Addis Ababa is just off Meskel Square in Bole, and is adjacent to the UN-ECA headquarters and conference centre.
It is a ten minute drive away from Bole International Airport, the African Union headquarters and the Ethiopian National Museum.
“This is the latest in a series of important landmark hotel signings and openings we have made in Africa.
“We are extremely proud to open the first Marriott Executive Apartments in Ethiopia in partnership with Sunshine Business,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president, Marriott International Middle East & Africa.
“Africa is important to Marriott International’s growth strategy because of its rapid economic growth, growing middle class and youth population, as well as the expansion of international flights onto the continent.”
The Marriott Executive Apartments Addis Ababa will provide residents with a choice of one and two-bedroom elegantly furnished serviced apartments, or the Penthouse Presidential Suite, each with a fully-equipped kitchen, free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, and includes services such as housekeeping, grocery shopping and room service.
For business travellers, the property provides multi-function meeting rooms and over 160 square metres of event space.
Sunshine Business president, Samuel Tafese, said, “We are pleased to announce the opening of Ethiopia’s first Marriott-branded property.
“Addis Ababa is one of the most vibrant cities in Africa and the government’s exceptional infrastructure spending make Addis an ideal place to conduct business.”
