sher­a­ton Ho­tels & Re­sorts, part of Mar­riott In­ter­na­tional Inc., has an­nounced the de­but of Sher­a­ton Grand in Africa with open­ing of Sher­a­ton Grand Con­akry, wel­com­ing it to the brand’s premier tier of ho­tels recog­nised for their ex­cit­ing des­ti­na­tions, dis­tin­guished de­signs, and ex­cel­lence in ser­vice and guest ex­pe­ri­ences. The newly built ho­tel marks Mar­riott In­ter­na­tional’s en­try into Guinea, 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 pro­gram­ming and an el­e­vated guest ex­pe­ri­ence for busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers in the heart of West Africa.

All 269 well-ap­pointed gue­strooms boast breath­tak­ing ocean views, of­fer­ing un­matched com­fort and the Sher­a­ton Sig­na­ture Sleep Ex­pe­ri­ence. Con­tem­po­rary de­sign and lo­cal touches blend to cre­ate a dis­tinct and vi­brant aes­thetic.

The 49 Sher­a­ton Club rooms and suites of­fer ex­clu­sive ac­cess to the Sher­a­ton® Club Lounge, a pri­vate space, where guests can en­joy com­pli­men­tary break­fast, drinks and snacks dur­ing the day.
