Marriott opens 155-room hotel in Lagos

The Renaissance Lagos Ikeja Hotel is the first for the Marriott International brand in sub-Saharan Africa.

A statement from Renaissance released on Monday said the hotel in Nigeria’s commercial centre “offers world-class amenities, modern aesthetic, sophisticated service and unique programming that reflect the brand’s signature approach to feed the curiosity, fuel the imagination and excite the senses of its guests”.
Mark Satterfield, chief operating officer for Middle East and Africa for Marriott International said: “This is not just a landmark signing for Renaissance Hotels but also for Marriott International as it marks our fourth debut in an African nation, following the opening of Marriott International properties across a number of its brands in Ethiopia, Rwanda and Morocco.”
Only 5km from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Renaissance Lagos Ikeja Hotel has 155 guest rooms including 17 loft suites.
The statement said the hotel’s business amenities included eight meeting rooms that could be adapted to cater for anything from a six-person meeting to a banquet-style event for up to 280.
“Stylishly designed with elegant African touches and lots of natural light, the rooms feature expansive seating areas with large LED TVs with 70-plus channels. The hotel’s outdoor pool with city views and 24-hour fitness centre provide guests with picturesque facilities in which to work out and unwind,” it added.
