US-based diversified hospitality company Marriott International’s subsidiary Sheraton Hotels and Resorts has opened Sheraton Grand Conakry, the company’s first Sheraton Grand hotel in Africa.
With the opening of the newly constructed Sheraton Grand hotel in Conakry's Kipe district, Marriott International makes its first entry into Guinea, West Africa.
Marriott International Middle East and Africa president and managing director Alex Kyriakidis said: “Sheraton has a strong heritage in Africa that dates back to 1971.
“Over the last four decades, the brand has maintained its first mover advantage through strategic pipeline development and growth plans, giving global travellers access to more destinations in every corner of the globe.
“Sheraton Grand Conakry not only marks our entry into a new country but will also create a halo effect for the brand and serve as a great example of our transformation efforts.”
The Sheraton Grand Conakry adds to the portfolio of the company’s more than 35 Sheraton Grand properties across the globe, including Dubai, Bangalore, Istanbul, and Beijing.
