Johannesburg’s upscale Sandton neighborhood is the city’s business center where many major international companies house their headquarters. Its heart is Nelson Mandela Square with its large, six-meter sculpture of the country’s first democratically elected president. The Michelangelo, a retreat in the square’s bustle, overlooks this leafy enclave.
The Renaissance-style hotel is venerated for its easy access to the neighborhood’s shopping, dining and entertainment, many located in the adjacent square. Guests can take advantage of a fitness center with personal trainers, a sauna and heated indoor pool. The spa is acclaimed, especially for its grass-covered sundeck. Expert but unobtrusive service has long made the hotel a leading choice for travelers.
