South African hotel industry eyebrows were raised in October 2011, when Tsogo Sun Hotels announced that it had acquired the Grace Hotel property and office buildings in Rosebank, Johannesburg. As extensive refurbishment got under way, the industry held its breath to see what would transpire, before Tsogo Sun unveiled 54 on Bath in July of 2012. The end result? Something classic, something sophisticated and something very accommodating – a real statement from Tsogo Sun Hotels.
54 on Bath is for the discerning traveller seeking intimacy and refinement, but always with stylish flair. From the moment of arrival in the elegant lobby with its delightful lounge, to the luxury and comfort of your room, you will enjoy attentive and friendly service. Everything has been designed around guest comfort, and the stylish interiors reflect a calm tranquillity, with the use of harmonious colours, sophisticated design and strong graphic motifs.
54 on Bath is situated right in the heart of the leafy, vibrant suburb of Rosebank, where you seldom want for anything, be it business or pleasure. With Bath Avenue adjacent to the trendy Rosebank Mall, a link bridge from the second floor of the hotel leads straight to the centre, which offers a plethora of designer stores, boutiques, restaurants and entertainment, including a host of movie theatres. As far as access goes, it’s in prime position, with the local Gautrain station located just 300 metres from the hotel, connecting guests to O.R. Tambo International Airport, and the business centres of Sandton and Pretoria.
Meeting & Conferencing
Whilst 54 on Bath has already made an impact on the local hotel scene, offering quality accommodation at an affordable price, it’s also more than just a contemporary place to lay one’s head. For the business traveller looking for meeting and conference facilities, there are four well-appointed and flexible meeting rooms capable of hosting up to 120 delegates. There is also a boardroom that can accommodate 14 delegates. All the meeting and conference rooms are fully-equipped with modern technology, secretarial support and additional services, to ensure the smooth running of any guest’s business activities. Further to that, Tsogo Sun Hotels has recognised the importance of some of the finer detail, with 54 on Bath offering complimentary Wi-Fi access and valet parking.
The hotel’s dedicated Meetings and Events team takes pride in being able to provide knowledgeable assistance in customising events to any specific requirement and budget. And that applies to whether or not you are hosting intimate business meetings, high-level conferences, cocktail parties or breakfast presentations. All of these will be planned with meticulous precision. Both day conference packages as well as full accommodation and conference packages are available.
For the staff at 54 on Bath, it’s the little things in life that make a difference. So, the hotel’s executive chef will consult on special menus to ensure that the event is a culinary highlight. Upon arrival teas, filter coffee, assorted fruit juices and pastries are also part of the offering, ensuring that every delegate’s appetite is catered for. Lunch breaks are a luxurious affair, with detailed menus confirmed to suit the meeting or event requirements.
Wining & Dining
After a long day of meetings, guests can discover the tradition of 54 on Bath’s legendary afternoon tea, served either in the luxurious lounge or, weather permitting, on the terrace area close to the lap pool. Better yet, the elegant Champagne Bar, adjacent to the Level Four Restaurant, is ideal for a celebration, providing a classy environment in which to entertain, network or relax. Choose from a variety of champagnes, including the ever-popular Veuve Clicquot, as well as a range of cocktails and quality wines.
With your thirst quenched, it’s time to turn your attention to what’s on offer from a dining point of view. Guests can dine at the elegant Level Four restaurant which offers classical cuisine with a contemporary twist. The restaurant is situated on the fourth floor and extends onto the garden terrace with its lap pool. The signature menu offers a selection of dishes, including the extraordinary and the classic – each dish a fusion of flavours to charm even the most refined palate.
