Here's to a stupendous staycation with no regrets!

The Marriott Melrose Arch is one of those places where you know what to expect and you know those expectations will be met. If you’re lucky, you would have visited this stellar hotel chain before. Well we hadn’t and seeing as this is the very first Marriott in Johannesburg, we couldn’t wait to explore the hotel.


Let’s begin with breakfast because we believe it is one of the most important amenities of any hotel. This Covid safe banquet is spectacular, so hearty and satisfying. The offering of this hotel breakfast surpasses and fulfills all needs. From plentiful pastries to a unique hot selection to brie and berries to freshly made waffles and cream, name it they offer it. This morning feast alone needs to be on your bucket list! And the hotel staff are exceptional, lets just say attention to detail cannot be read from a manual.

There is also nothing more comforting than entering an immaculate hotel room, polished, clean and tidy, with a side warm welcome of freshly baked pastries waiting for you upon arrival.


The first thing you’ll notice is the space of the room, they’ve been incredibly generous with space and with beauty, as the views of the city and the hotel are fantastic. You’re offered all the modern comforts that you would get in your own home minus the screeching toddlers.

The hotel is situated inside the Melrose Arch Precinct which means you can enjoy a shopping spree, have brunch, host a business meeting inside the Greatroom, the social hub of the hotel (with excellent working wifi) or even choose to indulge in a lovely luncheon with your plus one inside the Keystone Restaurant. The chic design of the square lends itself to the sophistication of the hotel as well as enhancing the contemporary feel while the internal layout allows for an eye-catching space with easygoing charm.


This brand new building acts as the ideal refuge from the mundane. It is the perfect opportunity to take some time out, enjoy the best workout, relish in delicious cuisine and all just ten minutes from your home.
