After flying from JFK to Johannesburg, then on to Cape Town, I am here at 15 on Orange, the hotel I will be staying at for the next four nights. Even though the flight from JFK is long, South African Airways has comfortable seating with a lot of leg room in coach so you aren't too cramped. We were served a hot lunch, sandwich platter for dinner, and a hot breakfast. Soft drinks, wine, and other alcoholic drinks are included. The airline also provides an eye mask, socks, and a toothbrush with toothpaste.
15 on Orange is part of African Pride Hotels, and is located right in the heart of Cape Town. On a clear day there is a magnificent view of Table Mountain from the hotel. You are greeted by the hotel staff upon entering, and after checking in, a staff member personally escorts you to your room. The decor is modern and the Deluxe Suite is very large and comfortable with two flat screen TVs, a soaking tub, rain shower, king bed, sofa, DVD selection, and Ipod docking and charging station.
