April 2014: A 7-month refurbishment of all public spaces and rooms of Protea Hotel Capital has just been completed, showcasing a unique, fresh sense of style.
The extensive refurbishment includes the restaurant, reception area, lounge and the 104 spacious en suite bedrooms, as well as new mood lighting and air-conditioning systems.
Protea Hotels Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue, Danny Bryer, says the renovation has transformed the Protea Hotel Capital into one of the most exciting venues in Pretoria.
“With its central location Protea Hotel Capital is a firm favourite for conferencing, and delegates in the 6 well-equipped conference venues will love the new calm earthy tones and clean lines of the fittings and furnishings.
“Among the public areas that received a make-over are the elegant Thistle Cocktail Bar and enclosed pool and patio, which are excellent locations for receptions, coffee breaks and dinner parties.”
In the rooms new laptop safes have also been installed along with the comfortable, modern furniture. The restaurant boasts a new buffet area as well.
The hotel is situated on the edge of the CBD with easy access to the State Theatre, Hatfield entertainment area and botanical park.
