Strange, no hotels from Nairobi, egypt, or cities in morrocco in that top ten list?

Btw, is it an official list of just the top ten hotel you happen to know?
Nah Nairobi hotels don't make the list in terms of room size. Most of them are around the 200-300 room size.

Any pictures of the Sheraton at Addis Ababa, heard its a beautiful hotel. How many rooms for this hotel?
Sheraton Addis Hotel & Towers - ***** - 295 rooms - built 1998 - Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

This hotel was built by Dubai-owned Midroc and took 4 years to build. It's one of the only two Luxury Collection by Sheraton hotels in Africa. The other one is the 145-room Arabella Western Cape Hotel & Spa at Botriver Estuary near Hermanus in South Africa which was opened in 2001.

It was actually built by ''Midroc Ethiopia'' and owned by a rich Ethio/saudi shiek whos the biggest investor in both Ethiopia and Sweden.

I thought Sun city was just a collection of casinos. Other than the five hotels, what else does this resort have?

It's a massive resort with i think 5 hotels, all linked with monorail. It has a casino, entertainment centre, restaurants, and a giant concert hall called the Super Bowl where international and big concerts are held. It also has a Gary Player signature golf course where the Nedbank golf challenge is played every year. It has tons of stuff to do, including many water slides, a huge wave pool, skiing, etc...
