The "grand old lady" of Accra is undergoing a renovation and the new bedrooms, restaurant and public areas look great. The pool is now open again.
The new restaurant is nice and the food is good. The pool area is lovely and a very popular after work meeting spot. The new rooms are really nice and comfortable.
But the downside generally speaking is the staff. They are at best semi-friendly and semi-helpful. The front desk staff needs to be trained in currency conversion - small bit of advice is to check the credit card slip when it is presented to you to sign - the hotel bill is in local currency but the payment is in USD - in my case the amount on the credit card slip was the local currency amount but in front of it was written USD meaning a gross overcharge. Check your restaurant and drinks bill - extras tend to slip in.
I stayed in a new room, the design and decoration is great, the room was clean, however the new carpets in the corridors were simply filthy.
To access the internet, you have to buy a voucher from the business center. The business center staff are more interested in conversation amongst themselves than they are in serving you whilst waiting at the desk.
The only time you see a manager around is when they pop outside to smoke. And I guess it tells the story - the staff know they are not being supervised and are left to their own devices.
