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.

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...
