Le Meridien Grand Towers, Ikoyi, Nigeria
The Le Meridien Grand Towers, Ikoyi project, has been driven within a very precise aspiration, that is to create two towers of 15 storeys high landmark Hotel and Residential tower in Lagos, Nigeria, as an icon in the skyline of the bay. This will provide the most luxurious accommodation in the City. The position of the project is in the heart of the prestigious Ikoyi Island. From a certain height of the building, the occupants will have views on both sides overlooking the Lagoon. It aims to combine a modern architectural expression with more classical formal elements and layouts.

Although the two towers are similar in their architectural style, they have different facades, each adapted to the functions they house. The two towers are sitting on the podium. The podium houses all the entrances, receptions, function halls, support services and amenities necessary for this top class complex. Both have three regiments: a base, a middle portion of the tower, and a top.

Le Meridien Grand Towers will have 271 suites divided in 5 different suite size categories: the King Suite, the Twin Suite, the Suite, the Diplomatic Suite and Visitors' rooms (attached to other suites). Added to these, there will be 46 smaller rooms that form part of the four Suites located at the end of the two West wings of the Hotel. This brings the number of keys to 317. Its VIP floors and services will rival any world-class accommodation, thus making Le Meridien Grand Towers Hotel the top accommodation in Lagos.

It says it will be complete by 2010 in the starwood website but in a new article it said it could open as late as 2011.

That is what I keep saying. Ikoyi is booming

People need to take more photos of Ikoyi.

Maybe it's because it is an exclusive rich suburb that is why many people don't venture into there. It is the most exclusive suburb in Nigeria along with Maitama.

Not any more.

Starwood had a press conference with the hotel's developer (SIO Properties) last Friday at the Four Points in Lagos (another Starwood property) in which they announced that the hotel is being upgraded to Starwood's Luxury Collection brand and this has resulted in re-designing the interiors and incorporating newly-developed materials and more advanced technology, as well as the appointment of a foreign contractor (albeit Turkish :lol:) supposedly for better finishing. Will likely open in 2013 or 2014.
