Sheraton launches Grand brand in West Africa

Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International, has announced the debut of its Sheraton Grand brand in Africa with opening of the Sheraton Grand Conakry in Guinea, West Africa.
The newly built hotel marks Marriott International’s entry into West Africa and joins a portfolio of more than 35 Sheraton Grand properties worldwide, with destinations spanning Istanbul, Dubai, Bangalore, Beijing and beyond.

“Sheraton has a strong heritage in Africa that dates back to 1971,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International. “Over the last four decades, the brand has maintained its first mover advantage through strategic pipeline development and growth plans, giving global travellers access to more destinations in every corner of the globe. Sheraton Grand Conakry not only marks our entry into a new country, but will also create a halo effect for the brand and serve as a great example of our transformation efforts.”

Within easy reach from the international airport, Sheraton Grand Conakry is conveniently situated in Conakry’s up-and-coming trendy Kipe district. With an enviable ocean-front location, the hotel introduces modern, elegant design, signature brand programing and an elevated guest experience for business and leisure travellers in the heart of West Africa.

There are 269 guestrooms with ocean views. The 49 Sheraton Club rooms and suites offer exclusive access to the Sheraton Club Lounge. Leisure facilities include an extensive 300 square meter fitness center with equipment available 24 hours a day, an infinity pool and Spa.

With more than 1300 square meters of dedicated meeting space, Sheraton Grand Conakry features a Grand Ballroom with state-of-the-art facilities and endless connectivity through high-speed Wi-Fi, along with 15 meeting rooms and a fully equipped business centre.

“We are proud to be the first Sheraton Grand in Africa and Indian Ocean,” said Helga Deboeck, General Manager of Sheraton Grand Conakry. “We have worked diligently to ensure the hotel goes above and beyond to deliver a fresh, modern and memorable experience to our guests setting a new benchmark of service within West Africa.”
