Four-star business hospitality facility, Accra City Hotel, is hoping to become a major player in West Africa’s meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) market as it expands its facilities.
The new project, when completed, will enable the hotel to host large-size meetings and events, increase bed capacity and add on to entertainment facilities, with a nightclub, among other ancillary installations.
The General Manager of the hotel, Divine Matey, said the new development on the property would address shortfalls in hosting large conferences.
“The main missing link is the conferencing; we lose a lot of business, we have the rooms but we don’t have the conference space,” he stated.
Mr Matey said the new expansion when completed would cater to the need of every guest regardless of their preference.
“We are known as a business hotel and we want to bring the leisure side. We are going to have a club attached to the bar and we will make it exclusive. With the main building, we are expanding the conference offering with more conference rooms; we want to have the largest capacity in Accra,” he indicated.
The general manager said the hotel was also considering suites and at an aparthotel concept.
“We want the hotel to be a one-stop-shop facility, where even if you like an apartment hotel, you can have it, if you want a suite you have it, if you want standard rooms you come to the main building,” Mr Matey stated.
Mr Matey added that the hotel would continue to enhance guest experience services.
“With hospitality, everyone wants a new ambiance, so everyone wants to come and see what Accra City has to offer now and explore it and when you come to our space, our service delivery will hook you on and you will want to come,” he said.
