Wonderful hotel, excellent buffet breakfast!

London, Canada

The African Pride hotel is located in a gated trendy area (Melrose Arch). The upscale neighborhood consists of restaurants, bars, cafes & shops all intertwined on cobblestone streets. The area is very safe to walk around at night. We enjoyed Jamie Oliver's Italian eatery which is right next to the hotel. The buffet breakfast at the hotel is wonderful, and the dining area is posh. The hotel is 5 star, and has all the amenities, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the beds are super comfortable. You will not be disappointed.

Stay away...unwelcoming service

Central District, Israel

In previous trips I asked to stay in this 5 stars hotel as its location in a nice neighborhood and it hosts some of my busienss colleagues. Soon I learnt that despite the expensive rate, the hotel doesn’t have a gym and it refers you to an outside gym for nearly $30 a day, it also charge you half a night rate for 11am early check in regardless if you are premium frequent customer and generally the service is mediocre. Anyhow, prior to my recent trip, I asked my travel dpt to get into agreement with the hotel. we got pretty good daily rate, inclusive of breakfast and a daily gym voucher. All documented in writing with Marriott sales team. Yet, when I checked in, the unfriendly front desk lady told me “your rate doesn’t include breakfast and we don’t have gym here”. When I shared with her the written agreement of Marriott she just ignored it. I was very upset and asked her to talk to the front desk manager. He wasn’t there and later that day I received an email from the front desk associate manager repeating same message: breakfast and gym are not included and are available for an extra cost. It took multiple international calls to get the hotel to respect the agreement made with Marriott sales team. While a sales manager called and apologized for the mistake, None of the hotel staff ever thought to admit their mistake, let alone apologizes for their behavior. On the positive side, breakfast is very good and the outside gym facility is excellent. Bottom line, if you want to feel welcomed, you better book another hotel.
