The hotel will have 256 rooms and suites, and 64 serviced apartments as well as an array of themed restaurants, meeting venues and other attractions. Only 7 km from the Lomé–Tokoin International Airport, which connects Togo to key African cities as well as Europe and beyond, Address Hotel 2 Février Lomé Togo will be operated by Address Hotels + Resorts, the premium lifestyle hotel and serviced residences brand of Emaar Hospitality Group.

The new project will be highlighted by the differentiating brand values of Address Hotels + Resorts, which offer a more personal and engaging experience to guests in a premium lifestyle environment.
