Accra City Hotel, a multiple award-winning Ghanaian Four-star brand, has cut the sod to begin the construction of a multi-purpose facility, aimed at attracting and hosting top-notch local and international events.
The ultra-modern five-storey facility is designed to enhance the services available at the hotel.
The phenomenal vision would deliver enhancements, which include a plush 400-seater conference hall, leisure amenities, a specialty/ themed restaurant, cinema, state of the art gym equipment, as well as a classy sky-bar with breath-taking views overlooking the business enclave of Accra.
Construction is expected to be completed in 18 months.
At the ground breaking ceremony, in Accra, Mr Emmanuel Abraham Folson, Chairman of the Board of the Hotel, explained that the purpose of the project was to ultimately position the Hotel as the leading four-star brand in Ghana.
He stated: “We want to position Accra City Hotel as the epicenter of the hospitality industry. It is already leading in the four-star category, but we are determined to make it a hotel that best typifies Ghanaian hospitality.
“We believe that this new phase of development is what we need to reach that goal.”
Mr Emmanuel Adu-Sarkodee, the Executive Director of Accra City Hotel, in an interview, said the Hotel would continue to embark on various initiatives and projects that would not only distinguish itself, but also tout Ghana’s credentials as the preferred leisure and business destination in the Sub-region.
“On completion, there will be a new Accra City Hotel, a hotel that can meet every hospitality and leisure demand of any magnitude, from the local to the international market,” he said.
Mr Roman Krabel, the General Manager, also assured all stakeholders that the Hotel had made adequate arrangements for all guests to continue to enjoy uninterrupted services, while construction continued.
He stated: “Our guests can rest assured that the construction will neither affect our operations nor their service experience”.
Accra City Hotel, a member of Ghana Club 100 and a World Luxury Award winner, has in the past couple of years excelled in delivering first rate hospitality experience for the Ghanaian and international market.
Accra City hotel is the first and only International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) certified hotel in Ghana.
