Suite Talk Q&A

  1. What is a typical day in the life of a suite? Every morning a team of dedicated housekeepers come and visit and make sure I am in the most perfect form for a guest arriving for the day. I have the Front Office management team visit me to lovingly place a key on my desk table for the family or guests that will be visiting me, they are joined by my dedicated Butler who makes sure that all of the little goodies that my guests will be receiving are in the suite. They take one final walk through to make sure that I am perfectly laid out for the next guest I will be hosting. From there I eagerly await the arrival of my guests. 
  2. What would be your advice for a first time guest visiting? Take in the views! The views from my lounge at sunset or from the Olive Bar are amazing! Johannesburg is truly a cultural hot spot, so I recommend a tour and a visit to the Maboneng precinct. 
  3. How would you like to be remembered? I would like to be remembered as the home for President Nelson Mandela while he edited his book ‘Long Walk to Freedom.’
