Situated only one kilometre from Kotoka International Airport and just seven kilometres from the city centre, Holiday Inn Accra Airport is ideally located for the business traveller or adventurous tourist. Widely acknowledged as the premium hotel in Accra, it recently played host to the US first family during their visit to Ghana – the first by US President Obama to sub-Saharan Africa since he came to office.
Leisure facilities at the hotel are extensive, and include a swimming pool, a fully equipped gym and a health centre. The seven storey hotel has 98 standard rooms, 48 executive rooms, 14 deluxe rooms, six executive suites and two presidential suites. All are luxuriously appointed and equipped with satellite television, mini-bar and Wi-Fi. Coffee and tea making facilities complement the 24-hour room service and in-room safe deposit boxes.
The hotel offers some of the best cuisine to be found in Accra. The main restaurant is the elegant Wiase Restaurant, which has a terrace overlooking the swimming pool, and is open all day offering guests the choice of a delectable buffet or a set menu. A highlight at the Wiase Restaurant is the Ghanian Sunday brunch, where a selection of breakfast and lunch items are freshly prepared using local recipes.
For guests looking for a more laid back experience, the La Cabana Pool Bar and Restaurant provides a varied menu in a relaxed environment – as well as a splendid view. A popular highlight at La Cabana is Friday’s happy hour, as well as the live band music.
As a conference venue, the Holiday Inn Accra Airport is unsurpassed. Its proximity to the airport, state of the art technology and top quality meeting rooms ensure that every client requirement is met. Exceptional conferencing facilities are matched by the skills of the dedicated conferencing and banqueting manager, whose team can cater for a reception for 450 people and banqueting or a seated conference for up to 250 people. The hotel has one boardroom, three meeting rooms and a banquet and conference hall, all of which are designed to allow for a great deal of flexibility in how they are used as well as the number of people they can accommodate.
