The hotel was formerly called The Grace In Rosebank Hotel. Tsogo Sun, the new owner, however, adopted 54 Bath Avenue, the address of the old property, as the name of the new deluxe boutique hotel it acquired and renovated. The hotel comes to you as the ideal destination for guests seeking a sophisticated city hotel with the highest level of service in graceful surroundings. Besides, it offers easy access to Johannesburg’s most prominent business and cultural museums, as well as to the O.R. Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg.

Jacques Moolman, the general manager of the hotel, is waiting to pamper his guests. He did not fail to highlight the many things to enjoy while on stay at the hotel, especially to the Nigerian delegate of travel agents who were in the hotel recently. Expressing his delight in having such a group from Nigeria, he looked forward to the Nigerian market for its strong patronage.

While touring the hotel facilities with the Nigerian delegate, Janine Scott, Tsogo Sun’s sales representative, Offshore, further showed the group the facilities that make the hotel stand out. “54 On Bath has generously proportioned single, double and twin rooms, each equipped with a bathroom and separate shower that gives you a sophisticated boutique-styled hotel with the highest standards of personal service and luxury,” Scott said.

An enclosed sky bridge links the 54 On Bath to the Mall of Rosebank, perfect for the regular shopper. Leisure and business guests have easy access to designer shops, boutiques and entertainment facilities at the Mall through the hotel link from the second floor.
The hotel equally offers its guests added benefits including free Wi-Fi, underground parking, complimentary tea, coffee and snacks with a business centre that remains open on a complimentary basis to all guests, 24 hours a day.

And the Nigerian delegate is grateful to the Tsogo Sun Group, Southern Sun Ikoyi Hotel, and South African Airways for giving them the opportunity to experience first-hand offerings. Those in the group now know better and can advise their clients better on what to do and where to stay while on business trip or holiday in South Africa.
