A new 4 star Best Western Plus has officially opened its doors earlier this week in the Tanzanian commercial capital of Dar es Salaam.
The 90 room Best Western Plus Colosseum is located along Nkrumah Road and close to the Milimani Convention Centre, adding more options for travelers coming for conferences and business to Dar es Salaam. With the upcoming inaugural Swahili International Tourism Expo now just days away, the event is taking place at the Milimani Convention Centre from October 01st to 04th, does the hotel expect to be fully booked and will be able to showcase its service levels to a number of visitors to the inaugural SITE event.
Present at the opening was Ms. Mdachi Devota, Acting CEO of the Tanzania Tourist Board who warmly welcomed the new investment in the hospitality sector. She was quick to invite investors to construct more quality hotels, citing rising visitor numbers to Tanzania, including the fast growing MICE market segment.
The discovery of very large gas deposits off the coastline in the extreme South of Tanzania and the arrival of more airlines flying in from the Gulf, FlyDubai is starting operations in mid-October and Etihad has announced flights to commence late this year, will certainly give a bright outlook to hotels, in particular those under a well-known international brand.
