Cape Town Tourism CEO, Mariette du Toit-Helmbold, was elated to hear the announcement and described the accolade as an “incredibly positive endorsement of Cape Town, a hearty cheer from the crowd! The Cape Grace has always been an exemplary hotel and a benchmark for the best in Cape Town hospitality. We are so pleased that they have been recognized in such an authoritative way.”
