PROTEA HOTEL FIRE & ICE! WOWS GUESTS IN CAPE TOWN
Cape Town, 16 February 2010: Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! in Cape Town is officially the Mother City’s hottest place to chill. After an extensive refurbishment - which includes additional conference facilities, 59 rooms and 12 one- and two-bedroom lofts catering for long-staying guests – this stylish hotel is already a popular landmark for both local and international leisure and business travelers seeking a unique experience and good value for money.
“The hotel has doubled in size which hasn’t impacted on the occupancies which are currently being achieved,” said Danny Bryer, Marketing and Revenue Director, Protea Hotels, “The service philosophy and unique product offering of Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! are the main contributors for acquiring new guests and maintaining existing markets. Our guests become brand ambassadors for us which results in them sharing their experiences and the unique attributes of our product with their friends and followings on various social networking platforms.”
What Protea Hotels’ management proudly describes as “Gucci-chic”, this hotel has attracted a lot of attention from the “forever young set” for its unusual features which include, amongst others, quirky public bathrooms, rich gourmet milkshakes, a shark cage lift and exotic South African menu. The minute attention to detail in décor and features adds a trendy yet informal touch and can be seen in everything from the low-hanging crystal chandeliers, the Koi pond and in-room Bose alarm clock radios.
The exclusive fully-serviced double volume loft apartments, which are set to open in March, will have self-catering facilities. With the added benefit of the hotel’s conferencing, business and entertainment facilities, Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! is ideal for the businessman spending more than a few nights in the Mother City.
“Comments and suggestions from our regular guests played a large role in our decision to grow this hotel and so far their response has been positive,” continued Bryer.
Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! offers 24 hour room service, a complimentary business centre and a fitness centre with state of the art Technogym equipment leading onto an upstairs pool deck.
