I can't think of anything (other than easing security procedures or relocating on a beach) which this hotel could do better. It was my third visit, but first in several years, and there is nothing old or tired about the Sheraton in Addis. The service, from first check in to warm greeting from all staff, is efficient and respectful but not intrusive. The rooms and the facilities look as though they were re-designed yesterday. There are a number of small details that enhance the experience. The rooms are elegant and quiet. And the meals, highlighted by an in-house pastry shop, are delicious.
No question, the place is expensive, and given the poverty of the country, the contrast is jarring. But by African and world standards, the cost is not high, and it is no insult to Africa to stay in its (in my experience) best hotel.
If there is a weakness, it would be that the conference facility is confusingly designed. The restrooms are a long hike from the main meeting rooms and break-out rooms are not easy to find. But if you'd rather go to the pool and spa than the conference, this is the place to do it!
