“Sheraton hotel-genuine review”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2007

A nice hotel in the middle of Abuja city,easily accessible,friendly helpful polite staff. The rooms were clean with good amenities and a power shower! Food was excellent though expensive. Good restaurants and swimming pool.Nice view from the balcony and no mosquitoes. I'd definitely recommend it and stay there again. .

Shearton, during my time living in Abuja, was a consistently good place to house visiting buisnessmen and diplomats. The Abuja Hilton is better if you are doing business with government or need a nicer place to meet people. (Hilton executive lounge is a good place to do business.) However, if you are visiting Abuja on a tighter budget, or just on a business trip, the Shearton is a good bet and cheaper than Hilton.

What I liked about the Shearton was it had responsive management, polite service, and good food. They just opened a new steak restaurant, which is excellent. Abuja is not your typical African town, it was built over the last twenty years to cater to government. It doesn't have the heart or soul of a Dakar or Lagos, nonetheless Shearton is close to a lively restaurant and nightclub area: suggest Waikki's (Indian), Chase (Lebanese and Chinese) and Cherry's (bakery with best sandwiches in Abuja). They are all close, even within a short walk. The Grand Sqaure Supermarket is a short ride away, where you can stock up on supplies. Abuja is really manageable, no traffic like Lagos, so getting anywhere is easy within the city.

Rooms: Are acceptable, most have been updated, recommend upgrading to Club level, a little more expensive, but you get breakfast (good), a better room and more security.

Lobby has a nice bar for meeting people. Can grab a snack, and the bar is one of the few places in Abuja with a happy hour. Elephant Bar, is a call girl hang out, but actually not a bad place to get a drink and meet with others doing business in Abuja. The nightclub is good.

Again, the restaurants at Shearton tend to be better than Hilton, though my wife, daughter, and I liked Hilton's pool "Fulani" snack bar better than Shearton's pool. With a family the Hilton has more room to run and a nicer pool. Great Sunday atmosphere. Shearton lacks places where kids can explore, while Hilton has secure grounds and a large play yard.

Bottomline: Cheaper, in many ways better than Abuja Hilton; it ranks as the second hotel in Abuja, but a good choice on whole.
