Marriott International today will open Africa’s first Marriott Executive Apartments in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Marriott Executive Apartments Addis Ababa will appeal to both business and family travelers with 108 fully serviced apartments offering space, ambience and the privacy of residential living enabling a comfortable stay away from home.
Located in the heart of Ethiopia’s capital, the Marriott Executive Apartments Addis Ababa is just off Meskel Square in Bole, and is adjacent to the UN-ECA headquarters and conference center. It is a ten minute drive away from Bole International Airport, the African Union headquarters and the Ethiopian National Museum.
“This is the latest in a series of important landmark hotel signings and openings we have made in Africa. We are extremely proud to open the first Marriott Executive Apartments in Ethiopia in partnership with Sunshine Business,” said Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director Marriott International Middle East and Africa. “Africa is important to Marriott International’s growth strategy because of its rapid economic growth, growing middle class and youth population, as well as the expansion of international flights onto the continent.”
The Marriott Executive Apartments Addis Ababa will provide residents with a choice of one and two-bedroom elegantly furnished serviced apartments, or the Penthouse Presidential Suite, each with a fully-equipped kitchen, free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, and includes services such as housekeeping, grocery shopping and room service.
