To the point Check out our full review of the AC Hotel Cape Town Waterfront, a hotel you can get with Marriott Bonvoy points.

Location

L’hôtel AC Hotel Cape Town Waterfront est bien situé pour partir explorer Cape Town, à proximité du Waterfront (comptez une dizaine de minutes de marche, sinon utilisez la navette gratuite de l’hôtel)!

Sa situation, au bord d’un canal, fait que celui-ci est très calme et dans un endroit bien sécurisé.

Son adresse: Dockrail Road, Foreshore, Cape Town 8001 South Africa

Arrival

Notre vol en provenance de Johannesburg arrivait en fin de soirée. Après avoir pris possession de notre voiture à l’aéroport de Cape Town et une vingtaine de minutes de trajet, nous voici arrivés au AC Hotel Cape Town Waterfront autour de 22h.

This brand new hotel is undoubtedly one of the finest Marriott hotels in Cape Town.

À proximité de la réception se trouve le “dépanneur” de l’hôtel avec différents produits locaux.

Nous avions 2 chambres dans l’hôtel (ma mère voyageant avec nous): pour l’une des chambres, j’ai utilisé 5 crédits de surclassement en suite qui me restaient en cette fin d’année (un privilège de mon statut Titanium – accessible également aux membres Platinum). Quelques jours avant l’arrivée, j’ai reçu la confirmation qu’une des deux chambres avait bien été surclassée.

Ce sera celle qu’utilisera ma mère et nos enfants. Pour Audrey et moi, ce sera une chambre classique. Ces deux chambres seront au 3ème étage.

The Suite

Let’s start with a tour of the suite that my mother and our children will share, beginning with the living room. We appreciate the choice of materials between modern and classic. My mother enjoyed her morning coffee there while the children were sleeping in the room.

On the living room table, we found a welcome gift.

Note: the sofa is NOT a sofa bed.

The bedroom is enormous and occupies the corner of the hotel. The King-sized bed comfortably accommodated my mother and our two children.

There is an office in this room, as well as plenty of storage for luggage. On this desk, we found pieces of information about the hotel and the city, a Nespresso coffee machine and a kettle. A refrigerator is also there. Practical – especially for the “great milk lovers” accompanying us!

The bathroom

The suite has 2 bathrooms:

My mother will get one while the children will take ownership of the other!

The second bedroom

On our side, with Audrey, we had a more classic room, one you could get by redeeming Marriott Bonvoy points.

The bathroom (composed of a shower) and the accessories are identical to those of the suite (Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, Bluetooth alarm clock).

The pool

The pool is close to the hotel’s outdoor terrace and offers views of the docks. Unfortunately, the weather was not favourable during our stay, and we were not able to fully enjoy it (only our daughter did some dives).

Breakfast

Breakfast is in the hotel restaurant, at the lobby level.

AC Hotel By Marriott Cape Town Waterfront - Petit-déjeuner

Usually, breakfast is not free for Platinum / Titanium members within the brand AC Hotel. However, I had booked our rooms with a package including breakfast and parking, for a low rate per night (around CA$ 110 which did not justify the use of points)!

With the kids, the best seats are the tables with benches!

Conclusion

L’hôtel AC Hotel Cape Town Waterfront est un excellent hôtel flambant neuf de Cape Town. Si vous séjournez dans la ville, nous vous le recommandons fortement.

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié divers détails:

  • La gentillesse du personnel, et en particulier de Daniel, particulièrement attentif à nos besoins et ceux de nos enfants!
  • La navette de l’hôtel pour se rendre au Waterfront (à heures fixes)
  • La possibilité d’avoir accès gratuitement à une navette fluviale (demander au Concierge les tickets)

Cet hôtel est à la fois au cœur de l’action… tout en étant un peu à l’écart! Se rendre à l’hôtel depuis le Waterfront est très sécuritaire (un accès est rendu possible depuis l’arrière de la station-service, sans quoi une dizaine de minutes additionnelles de marche seraient nécessaires)!

Enfin, nous vous recommandons de tester le restaurant de l’hôtel qui a remporté de multiples distinctions! Absolument délicieux!
