Hotel Diary: The Crowne Plaza Johannesburg


Here are some photos from when I was staying at the Crowne Plaza in Rosebank. Each room has an Ipod dock and an electricity-activating room card slot so that when you leave the room everything is switched off to save energy. The staff were so lovely and helpful ensuring a very pleasant stay. The decor is wildy inspiring and The Circle Bar is ultra chic. Also, the bellhop uniforms are super fly. If you're ever looking for a hotel in Joburg, this is your place.

I love hotels way more than I should. I have one condition, I gotta have 24hr room service. As a fashion girl, I have been at odds with other people's ideas of a vacation. I understand the concept of anti-technology out-of-town rustic self-service digs but the allure of robes, wi-fi and house-keeping has me hooked. Also, pretty shoes work much better at hotels. I once ruined my mom's restored 70s cowboy boots by walking over rocks on a river on one of my more...rural adventures.

My idea of a compromise is a fantastic self-serving little cabin just outside of Cape Town where you can braai with your friends and also enjoy the comforts of rock-framed bathtubs and DSTV (I promise it exists). I just enjoy getting out of town to relax with a good book and those little chocolates on the pillows don't hurt.

You can take the girl out of the city but you just can't take the city out of the girl.
