4 star hotel to stay at in johannesburg in safe area

we are traveling to Johannesburg in March for a wedding and would appreciate reccommendations for a 4 star hotel to stay at in a safe area near shopping areas. Our friends live in Norwood and Illova so it would be good to be reasonably close by. Also any suggestions for a 2 night stay near johannesburg that we coud travel to by car. We recently went on safari so does not need to be a trip to a game reserve.

Anywhere in the Norwood-Illovo vicinity (the two suburbs are only a couple of kilometres apart) is safe. There are chain hotels at Melrose Arch and in Rosebank and central Sandton, there's a boutique hotel (March I think it's called) in Illovo, and a bunch of b&b/guest houses. Have a look at a site like safarinow.com , TA reviews, etc. B&Bs/guest houses are usually better value for money than hotels.

Your other question. Browse back through the Jhb forum. There were a couple of threads, may have been as far back as a year ago, with a bunch of suggestions for a brief getaway.

Protea hotel Wanderes is also an option that you can look at.

Sunnyside Park hotel is nearby the Constitutional Hill, Origin Centre on the way to the Apartheid museum. Easy to get on the high way.

Johannesburg is as safe as any city of 8 million, anywhere in the world, and indeed, safer than Acapulco, Baltimore, Detroit, St. Louis, New Orleans, Durban and Cape Town.

There are a few boutique hotels in those areas you can consider. My favorites:

The Winston

The Peech Hotel

The Monarch

I also like any of the 2 hotels at Melrose Arch for the convenience of having gym, shops, restaurants all within the precinct you can walk to.
