Among the recent developments appearing in the foreshore is the new AC Marriott Hotel, which will be opening its doors in December 2018.

The establishment is the first under the Marriott Hotel’s lifestyle brand to arrive in Africa. Marriott Hotels are renowned for their diverse offerings in accommodation around the world – catering to the luxurious and the simple.

Boasting 188 elegant rooms, the AC Marriott Cape Town showcases uninterrupted views of Table Mountain, Lions Head and Signal Hill.

The hotel is located within walking distance to the V&A Waterfront and a convenient 25-minute drive away from the Cape Town International Airport.

Created with a minimalist, simple and modern design, the hotel echoes earthy tones throughout.
