The iconic Cape Grace hotel on Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront has joined Accor. This follows the acquisition of the hotel by investment group Kasada in March.
My understanding is that the hotel will eventually be branded as a Fairmont. For now, however, it is going by the rather clunky name of ‘Cape Grace Managed By Accor’.
The reason for this appears to be that the new owners are planning a major refurbishment, and do not want to rebrand the hotel until it is complete.
If you have never stayed here or popped in, it is a very classy and relatively small (120 rooms) hotel. Features include:
- complimentary chauffeur service to anywhere within a 10km radius
- fresh tea and coffee delivered with wake-up calls.
- complimentary port and sherry in the library between 18h00 and 22h00
….. which gives you an idea of the sort of place it is.
Whilst not yet Fairmont branded, you can already book it on the Accor website and earn Accor Live Limitless points from your stays. It does not participate in the ‘guaranteed suite upgrade’ programme for Diamond members.
