Amazing hotel

Johannesburg’s charm is reflected in Melrose Arch and exemplified by the wonderful service and accommodations of this hotel. Location is perfect with many shops and restaurants around. Breakfast buffet is outstanding also. 2 thumbs up!

Chic hotel with superior service

African Pride Melrose Arch is conveniently located just off the M-1 expressway in Johannesburg in the Melrose Arch development (10 minutes from downtown attractions such as the Arts on Main and it is less than 25 minutes from OR Tambo airport). I wearily arrived with a group of friends to occupy 4 rooms for a couple of nights after we had flown in from Zambia. We were greeted with smiles by a professional staff that truly has its act together - the check in process was less than 5 minutes and the porters spirited our luggage to our rooms in a flash and without a hitch. My wife and I were upgraded to the Presidential Suite as I am a top tier Marriott customer. My wife giggled like a little kid as she explored the large living room, dining area, bar, huge outdoor patio with seating for 8, office, walk - in closet, and master bedroom suite complete with private outdoor shower and a tub large enough to swim laps in. There are a pile of excellent quality restaurants within walking distance and thus we decided to host our friends for drinks and appetizers before heading out for supper. The hotel staff willingly accommodated our need for extra place settings, beer and wine, ice, and other food items in a blink of an eye. My friends' rooms were very spacious and well appointed. Breakfast was among the finest we've enjoyed. Valet service was prompt and they didn't mess with the mirrors or seat - something I really appreciate. The experience was simply 5 star all the way and executed flawlessly. Now for the kicker - in the mass confusion that is 8 people checking out and in a bit of a hurry to load nearly 20 bags in 2 vehicles, a suitcase was accidently left by a porter in a room. We didn't discover the problem until we were at our next destination 5 hours away. The management team at Melrose Arch hopped right onto the problem and we had the missing bag before wakeup the next day. Talk about going the extra mile! It's service like this which has me as a Marriott member for life. This crew beat the pants off of any Ritz or Waldorf priory I've stayed with and at a fraction of the cost. All the extra nice touches were there too - from M&M candies and fruit flavored ice water at the front desk to the valets knowing me by name after I first checked in. Absolutely A+. Don't miss out if you're in the area.
