Enjoy the perfect mix of work and play at
Holiday Inn Sandton, set in the heart of Africa’s prime business district

Location, location

The nine-storey Holiday Inn Sandton, with its classic pillars, stands proudly on Rivonia Road. A mere stone’s throw from Sandton City, Nelson Mandela Square and the Sandton Convention Centre, this hotel is perfectly placed to host both executives and holidaymakers visiting Joburg. Expect impeccable service and a convenient place to rest your head while being dazzled by the city’s glitzy nightlife and unique culture.

Deep sleep

With 301 rooms divided into eight categories, guests can take their pick of accommodation. All rooms are decorated in calming earth tones and have functional yet comfortable designs, with blackout curtains and soundproofing to ensure a peaceful night’s rest. For workaholics, a Business Class room with its king-sized bed and convenient workstation is a perfect fit; while those who would like a little more luxury should book themselves into an extra-spacious Executive Room with Cafféluxe coffee machines.

Lounging around

Expect to be surrounded by rich wood, granite and leather at The Chairman bar. This intimate lounge, situated right next to the restaurant, is perfect for enjoying a cup of freshly brewed coffee – or maybe something stronger. Feeling a little too comfy to leave? Ask one of the friendly hotel staff for a menu, and turn a casual drink into a cosy lunch or dinner.

Sugar, spice and everything nice

Whether you’re slipping in for a quick breakfast or settling down for a well-deserved dinner, the offering at Lettuce & Lime is sure to whet your appetite. Breakfast is served buffet-style, while lunch and dinner are available à la carte, leaving you spoilt for choice. Peruse the hotel’s well-curated wine list to find the perfect pairing for your meal. If you’d prefer to dine in the comfort of your own suite, simply make use of the 24-hour, in-room dining service.

Executive decision

Holiday Inn Sandton has a range of conferencing options, including two boardrooms, three meeting rooms and six larger conference venues – whatever the size of your group, you will find the right space here. Turn up the glam and book one of the Cullinan rooms with their breathtaking views of the city for your next meeting. The sleek, minimalist interiors will ensure that your presentation takes centre stage and internet speeds as fast as 40 Mbps will guarantee that you stay connected.
