We Know About Jo'Burg's Flashy New Hotel. Don't You?
Tucked away in the heart of Johannesburg's Sandton district, The Maslowis a new hotel that's changing the face of travel to the largest city in South Africa. It's so fresh to the scene that when we were at the New York Times Travel Show last week, the country's own tourism reps didn't know about it!
Tempting world business travelers, the hotel pays respect to the world's most famous entrepenuers by naming each of their 12 conference rooms after the inspirational business people from the past. We're talking about Rockefeller, Astor, Edison, Venderbilt and Carnegie; the movers and shakers of modern day business. Even the namesake is from famous physcologist Abraham Maslow.
All 281 rooms are outfitted with calming contemporary design and free in-room WiFi. Since we have even asked how much hotel-room bathtubs get used, The Maslow offers guests the option to stay in rooms with 'power showers' or the full tub and shower set-up. With 135 of the standard rooms boasting the shower only, we know where The Maslow stands in the argument.
Just as business tycoons did in years passed, this hotel caters to weary travelers by featuring a spa that uses the Africology Skincare label with oxygen therapy treatments to ease jet lag. For those that need get creative while on vacation, the hotel offers a space called the incubator to host creative workshops and activities for travelers.
Opening rates are quite affordable at 1762 ZAR ($191) for a standard room with either bathroom option.
