An article on Travel written in the New York Times by Karen Leigh reads: “Accra, the capital of Ghana has welcomed business travelers for years and now tourists are streaming in, a byproduct of the fact that the country has Africa’s fastest growing economy and is also one of the safest destinations.”

“The Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel, with poolside bar and waiters on roller skates, opened in 2011, and the Marriott Accra — the chain’s first sub-Saharan offering — will feature a casino and upscale shopping when it opens in the spring,” it added.

The New York Times continued, “On Accra’s packed beaches, you’ll see everything from snake handlers to plantain peddlers. Head to the upscale neighborhood of Osu and hit the treehouse-inspired terrace at Buka for fine West African food. The best Ghanaian adventures start with a giant plate of tomato-smothered tilapia and banku — a fermented yeast paste that’s tastier than it sounds — washed down with local Star beer.”

This project has taken too long. Don´t know why? It started way back in 2005, I think , and is still not finished. Can´t even find the project on marriots webpage.

Scouring the dregs of the web...

Here are some people apparently working at the hotel:

Marriott is buying Protea Hotels of South Africa, and the article says the hotel will open in 2014:

This dude worked at the Marriott in 2008-09 (he seems to specialise in managing hotel construction) and noted the hotel was delayed:

The hotel will have 209 rooms, according to this website:

And finally, the thing you have been waiting for, some pictures:
