The rollout of this signature ‘home away from home’ service hotel offering for business and leisure travellers delivers a consistent on-brand signature architecture style and services while celebrating local context through the interior design detailing.

The City Lodge brand colour red is interpreted across several sites either in painted facades or red brick detailing. Each hotel’s site orientation and number of rooms determine the external facades but the design language continues throughout.

Reception areas, café style restaurants, the use of the circulation stairs as a central design feature and the integration of the outside pool deck into the lifestyle ambience of relaxation on ground level have become synonymous with the City Lodge guest experience. Further, hotel sites are often located within or alongside retail and mixed-use precincts that extend the convenient leisure options available for guests.

Each hotel has a consistent service offering creating a sense of familiarity and comfort for guests. These include business meeting rooms and wi-fi enabled hot-desking facilities, fitness rooms and pool decks and a café style restaurant that welcomes social and business connections throughout the day.

The interiors of each hotel site respond to the location of the hotel and the aesthetic prompts that the specific context generates. The Two Rivers City Lodge reflects the lush vegetation of Nairobi and the Newtown City Lodge celebrates the inner-city energy of Johannesburg. The Maputo City Lodge uses bright colours and geometry with tropical murals in the restaurant while the dining space in the City Lodge in Waterfall Estate explores elegant muted colours in a double volume space that makes the most of the highveld natural light.
