New Showstopping Hotel

Head to the V&A Waterfront, which has just seen the historic Grain Silo undergo a USD$35,000,000 makeover. It’s here you will find The Silo Hotel. With its pillowed windows, it is designed to look like a glowing beacon in the harbour. You’re sure to enjoy relaxing in its glass swimming pool, sipping bubbles at its rooftop champagne bar and relaxing in one of the 28 suites that look out over the harbour.
