Protea Hotel Select Ikeja opens in Nigeria

Nigeria’s new 117-room Protea Hotel Select Ikeja opens its doors this week in the upmarket Lagos suburb of Ikeja.

The internationally competitive hotel is just a stone’s throw away from Ikeja City Mall & Lagos State Secretariat, and a mere 5.2 kilometres away from Murtala Muhammed International Airport.

Accommodation at Protea Hotel Select Ikeja caters for corporate travellers with a variety of room types to suit guest’s needs, as well as a comfortable restaurant, bar and conference facilities for close to 60 people.

Middle East & Africa president for Marriott International, Alex Kyriakidis explained: “Marriott International’s fast growing footprint across the Middle East and Africa is a response to the potential we continue to observe in the region.

“At present we are seeing strong GDP growth across sub-Saharan Africa which translates into opportunity for our industry.

“Nigeria is one of our key markets and presents tremendous opportunity for us with the existing hotels we have in Lagos, as well as the strong pipeline of hotels that are coming up by 2018.”

The hotel accommodation comprises 75 classic rooms, right inter-leading twin bedrooms, 24 deluxe rooms, eight suites which feature open plan lounge and dining rooms separate from the bedrooms, and two universal accessible rooms.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, mini-bar fridges, satellite TV, work stations and tea/coffee making facilities.

Conference facilities consist of one conference room seating a maximum of 50 delegates depending on the seating arrangements and one small private boardroom seating a maximum of six delegates.

The hotel’s restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a strong focus on local and continental cuisine.

The bar is open 24 hours a day, though, offering a Poolside menu, and room service is also available around the clock.

Other hotel facilities include a shuttle service, secure open parking, and laundry service as well as free Wi-Fi access.
