Hot new hotels: The Silo, Cape Town

South African hotelier Liz Biden and London-based architect Thomas Heatherwick have joined forces to make this hotel on Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront a true spectacle. Set to open in March of 2017, the 28-room hotel shares the city’s historic grain silo—at one time the tallest building in sub-Saharan Africa—with the highly anticipated Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. The latter will be a coup for emerging contemporary African artists. The former will be a must for travelers to South Africa’s capital of cool.
