Starwood’s Four Points by Sheraton, and Carlson’s Park Plaza Hotels will be gazing down Bole Avenue in two years’ time.

Addis is to have two more international hotel brands catering to her visitors and residents, as two globally renowned names in hospitality – Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group have signed management agreements with two local companies, increasing the number of current and prospective international branded hotels to 13.

Alemgenet Trade & Industry Plc brokered a deal with Starwood on December 22, 2015, for a 29-storey building which is being erected along Africa Avenue to be operated under the “Four Points by Sheraton” brand;  while  Sahel & Family General Trading Plc inked in an agreement with Carlson, locally known for their brand Radisson Blu, on December 24, 2015 for the formation of another brand, Park Plaza.

Starwood’s is a 120 million dollar project involving several consultants. Local companies include BAMACON Engineering, undertaking the construction work for 280 million Br; as well as JDAW Consulting Architects & Engineers, which will be paid 2.5 million Br for architectural and structural designs. JDAW had recruited another local firm, Kenemos Structural Engineering, to undertake the structural component.

“Having the experience of doing structural design for over 500 projects in the country, including the Dire Dawa stadium, we were selected by JDAW and the hotel owner for the main framework in the design,” Kenmos Tesfaye, general manager of Kenmos Engineering told Fortune.

    I think having international hotels in the country is really important. The reason is Addis is the political capital of all Africa even though they don’t govern from over there. It also good to promote tourism and make connection for some international business, large events. These all help the country to create good paying jobs & open more the nation to foreign business because those international hotels can find the why to bring more business to the city because they have connection& experience. Who knows international banks and other financial institutions also will follow soon. In my understanding, it’s good for the nation.
