After a long holiday, we had to stay in JoBurg two additional days due to illness & cancelled flight. Such is travel these days. When we arrived from the airport via shuttle to Marriott, if felt a bit like home; familiar and I was so relieved when my head hit that Marriott pillow. The staff has been excellent. The food & drinks (especially) have been great. The hotel description in google maps does not do it justice. When first delayed from getting back to the states, I thought not a good end to our vacation. After two days of rest in lovely surroundings, I am refreshed, not frustrated.

This is the kind of hotel AVgeeks would love to stay. The entire design is related to aviation and this is great. Besides, there is a flight simulator just next door and can been clearly seen from rooms facing OR Tambo Int. Airport. If you're looking for a nice, quiet, simple yet functional place while on transit in Joburg, this hotel is a cool place to be. The rooms are not spacious, but large enough for a layover or while on a business stay if spending most of the time out of the hotel. The curtain separating bathroom area from the sleeping area shows how simple and functional the place is. The staff was welcoming, friendly and attentive to my needs, making helpful suggestions on how to navigate around the Kempton Park area. The food was very good during my stay. Not the best I've had before but I really enjoyed the buffets when I ate at the property.
