Boutique Hotel, Lagos
This stylish boutique hotel is a welcome addition to Lagos’ hotel landscape. It is a modern, well-designed, small property, with all the mod cons of a fully functioning hotel, but the vibe of trendy hangout spot.
Maison Fahrenheit is situated in the heart of the city’s commercial district, a stone’s throw from many of the best restaurants, nightlife, and shopping that the city has to offer.
It is also close by to the waterfront, and from various positions in the hotel there are unobstructed views of the ocean.
The 26 uniquely decorated rooms all sport a contemporary and fresh look. While the standard rooms are on the small size, the Executive and Deluxe suites are spacious, and most feature adjoining living areas. The Wow suite, whose colour scheme is almost exclusively white, is certainly a show piece.
The real Wow element of Maison Fahrenheit, however, are the common areas. From the downstairs restaurant, which is impeccably designed, to the urban chic pool area, to la piece de resistence: the rooftop Rue 80 Bar and Lounge. Rue 80 is one of the see and be seen spots from sunset to the small hours, where you can sip on excellent cocktails, sample some rather delicious bar snacks (more like full-blown meals), and listen to live DJs.
As well as being a great leisure spot, Maison Fahrenheit is also a solid option for business travellers, with high speed internet, and a conference space accommodating all varieties of corporate rendezvous.
