The Silo Hotel
The site Thomas Heatherwick, a London-based architect, converted a 1924 grain silo on Cape Town’s waterfront into a sparkling new hub that houses the Silo Hotel and the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, which opens this fall.

The hotel Occupying the six floors above the museum, the Silo makes a design statement with hotelier Liz Biden’s eclectic style. Floor-to-ceiling windows encase 28 guest rooms where steel beams contrast with crystal chandeliers, and bathrooms have black-and-white marble floors. African artwork, including photography by self-taught Kenyan artist Cyrus Kabiru and multi-media works by South Africa–born Frances Goodman, hangs throughout the hotel. The rooftop lounge, with a pool and 360- degree views, is the place to go for sunset cocktails. Doubles from $1,140.
