Durban’s Protea Hotel Edward has geared up for increased demand for accommodation, with the completion of the construction of 30 new additional rooms – 13 of which are sea. The new rooms – 26 standard rooms, two family rooms and two suites – take the total number of rooms in the hotel to 131.
In addition, the hotel has added another three boardrooms. These extend the meeting and conferencing facilities from the current eight multi-purpose venues offering amenities to between 10 and 260 delegates in a range of setups. “These new rooms are absolutely state-of-the-art, executive-style spaces that lend themselves to a range of uses: from exclusive dinners to private break-away session rooms to small cocktail events. They are kitted out with high-back chairs, 55’ HD TVs, drop-down screens, cappuccino machines and mini-bar facilities – making them among the most prestigious venues on offer in Durban,” said Danny Bryer, director of sales, marketing and revenue for Protea Hotels, a proud member of Marriott International. Conference packages include all costs relating to audio-visual and sound equipment, wireless projectors and Apple TVs.
