The Westcliff, Johannesburg

Today marks the opening of the second phase of ticketing for the 2010 FIFA World Cup which will take place in South Africa. Never before has this soccer tournament been held in Africa. As explained by The Washington Post: "On the heels of the 15th anniversary of the fall of apartheid, the soccer extravaganza will be a major boost to South Africa's tourism industry, because 350,000 to 400,000 people are expected to make the trip next summer." Grab tickets for matches in Johannesburg, and then book a room at The Westcliff for the top digs in town. Just 10 minutes from the city center in an exclusive residential suburb, The Westcliff is situated on a hilltop with cascading, sculpted gardens. While swimming in the infinity pool, you can check out the elephants in the Johannesburg Zoological Gardens below. As The Westcliff is part of the Orient-Express Collection of hotels, expect the highest standards of service.
