Marriott Hotel Melrose Arch is the first Marriott Hotel in South Africa to showcase the brand’s new design touchpoints. The property features 306 guest rooms, including 10 Junior Suites. Each of the spacious rooms are thoughtfully designed with a balance of tailored utility and contemporary style for the traveller who believes that form is just as important as function. Local accents add a sense of place to the sleek aesthetic, while open workspaces allow for flexibility to connect anytime.

The inspiration for the hotel interiors takes its reference from the assemblage of street art, Highveld storms, the railway commuter, Ekasi street style and the play of shadow and light in the city. These ideas express themselves in the use of a very natural, verging on industrial, palette including copper, brass, leather-look porcelain tiles, and engineered timber planks, off-shutter concrete and textured wallpaper.
