The palatial Palazzo Hotel at Montecasino recently celebrated its 14th anniversary with a comprehensive refurbishment that included the transformation of all rooms as well as the addition of a beautiful new restaurant and function venue.
“We pride ourselves on our reputation for providing ‘the velvet touch’ to guests, and this revamp has ensured that we maintain the high standard of refined elegance and opulence that have been the hallmarks of this property – which we believe is the most beautiful hotel in Johannesburg – since we opened in November 2000,” says Robert Jasper, general manager of the Palazzo Montecasino.
The refurbishment formed part of Tsogo Sun’s organic growth strategy and represented an investment of R60 million by the group.
“The Palazzo is a magnificent hotel with classic architecture and iconic public spaces, particularly the beautiful gardens. We particularly focused on the rooms in this refurbishment to ensure they offer a luxury experience to match the overall setting. This is the most beautiful hotel in Johannesburg,” says Marcel von Aulock, CEO of Tsogo Sun.
Interior designers David Muirhead and Associates handled the makeover of the rooms, giving them a contemporary colour palette in elegant fabrics and wall finishes.
The Palazzo is ideally located in Fourways, Johannesburg, a mere 15 minutes from Sandton, South Africa’s business hub, 40 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport and 20 minutes from Lanseria International Airport. The hotel forms part of the award-winning Montecasino entertainment complex, which offers guests an endless variety of entertainment options.
