The Hilton Garden Inn is among the new hotels agreed and will be Africa’s first modular build hotel, a release received here on Monday said.
It said the multi Guest-Room is a concept that Hilton first premiered in 2014 through a partnership with CIMC Modular Building Systems.
The hotel under construction along the Accra Liberation Road, just opposite the 37 Military Hospitals, is being developed under a management agreement with Independence Properties Ltd, whose majority shareholder is Trasacco Estates Development Company Ltd.
“After building a number of three star plus properties in West Africa the option to go modular and improve on room quality, project delivery and minimize construction risk was warmly embraced by our development, design and construction teams and we feel is the future of the industry,” Ian Morris Director, Independence Properties and CEO Trasacco Estates Development Company intoned.
The developers are thrilled that the location of the hotel along the main routebetween Ghana’s Central Business District (CBD) and its major international airport will be an advantage for users.
It is the first Hilton Garden Inn in Ghana and will feature three restaurants and amenities offered at each Hilton Garden Inn location, including complimentary high speed Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, 24-hour business and fitness centers, alongside four adjustable meeting rooms and a 450sqm ballroom.
When opened, the Hilton Garden Inn will add to the number of new high standard hotels opening in the West African cocoa, gold and oil exporting nation in recent years.
“Africa is a key strategic focus for CIMC, where our solutions can minimize risk on site while protecting and improving owner returns,” Paul Blackmore, Managing Director CIMC MBS, said.
He added: “We are very proud of the continued association between Hilton and CIMC, with Hilton Garden Inn being an excellent brand for utilizing our modular technology. In Independence Properties we have another great partner focused on a high-quality product.” Enditem.
