Marriott International Middle East and Africa VP Volker Heiden confirmed the reports saying that this is in line with Pretoria’s growth in demand for quality accommodation that Protea Hotels by Marriot parent company Marriott has seen and responded to by constructing the new hotels wing.
“This is particularly true for the suburb of Hatfield, which is a popular location for both business and residential. The suburb has attracted a lot of interest from tourists with it being in a prominent location with the University of Pretoria, the Loftus Versfeld Rugby Stadium, the city centre and many embassies surrounding it,” said Heiden.
