There’s a lot more to the DoubleTree by Hilton Cape Town Upper Eastside hotel than its recent five-star green rating, but that’s a good place to start. The hotel is only the second hotel in the whole of South Africa to achieve this status, which it was awarded in June by the Green Building Council of South Africa, who applauded its commitment to eco-friendly practices throughout its operation.
More than being ‘green’, DoubleTree by Hilton Cape Town Upper Eastside sets itself apart from other establishments in the Mother City by being the only large-scale hotel located in trendy Woodstock – just 15 minutes away from Cape Town International Airport and 10 minutes from the CBD, with views of Cape Town harbour on one side and the exquisite green slopes of Devil’s Peak mountain on the other, the hotel is perfectly positioned for business and leisure.
Thanks to nine conference and banquet venues, with A/V equipment, a complimentary business center, outstanding catering options and a dedicated events team, able to cater to up to 350 guests, hosting a business meeting or event at the hotel is a breeze. The professional team will go out of their way to assist with all planning, making your business or leisure event, small conference or gala dinner, go off without a glitch. The flexible spaces within allow the venue to accommodate anything from a music concert to a car launch.
The hotel is also well known for its incredible cuisine, thanks to Executive Chef Simon Kemp, who is at the helm of its main restaurant, Liberty’s. Guests can sip on a cocktail or two at the hotel’s Estreet Bar – or sample top South African wines from the extensive winelist, before enjoying a meal at the restaurant, which includes everything from tapas and gourmet burgers to fine dining and the most incredible desserts on its menu.
Each of the hotel rooms and suites are stylishly decorated and include all the necessary amenities. An organic herb garden can be found on the rooftop of the hotel, and an indoor pool and fitness gym are also accessible for those looking to keep in fit while on the go.
