Protea Hotel Sea Point Closing June-August 2013 For Extensive Refurbishment

November 2012: The popular 124-room Protea Hotel Sea Point in Cape Town will be shutting down operations for three months from 1 June to 31 August 2013 to undergo a substantial room remodel. The facelift will bring a fresh, contemporary look to the hotel’s sea-facing twin rooms and standard rooms, as well as to the family units. “The rooms are getting a complete make-over that involves construction, furniture and fittings. The hotel will close during this period because the vast scope of work would be disruptive to GUESTS,” says Danny Bryer, Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue for the Protea Hospitality Group. This refurbishment is the latest in a series of face-lifts to approximately 20 Protea Hotels in South Africa in the past two years. “Working closely with our property owners we’re ensuring that our property brand standards are met at a level that exceeds GUEST expectations. In this period some R500 million has been invested in property improvements of hotels within the Protea Hospitality Group and it’s a process of improvement that will continue,” Bryer said. -end- For more information contact Samantha Bartlett Senior Account Director Irvine Bartlett (+27) 21 424-5594 083 3177 062 sam@irvinebartlett.co.za
