The first African hotel to join The Luxury Collection, the Sheraton Addis is a portal into a world of exquisite sophistication and incomparable service.
From the ornate lobby to the manicured gardens with a fountain of “dancing waters" pulsating to classic symphonies, the hotel offers a never-ending vision of luminous beauty. Surrounded by luxuriant, terraced grounds, it stays true to the city of Addis Ababa—meaning "new flower" in Amharic—with the delicate scent of Ethiopian roses permeating the entire premises.
Set in mountainous countryside, 7,800 feet above sea level, the hotel was built by prominent Saudi Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Al-Amoudi, as a gift to Ethiopia. Designed by noted architect Kosek Ivo, the magnificent complex artfully combines the Ethiopian artistic culture with neo-classical style, and is a source of pride and inspiration to all Africans, and Ethiopians in particular. A first for Ethiopia, it was constructed to the highest efficiency standards and is constantly updated with the latest green technologies. Water, power and heat savings are made throughout the buildings, and a thorough recycling program is being used. The Green Organisation, an independent environmental group, recognized the hotel’s environmental efforts with the coveted International Green Apple Awards for Architectural Heritage and the Built Environment.
Since opening in February 1998, the Sheraton Addis has hosted countless high-profile events, including Pan-African and African Union summits, as well as New Year's Eve celebrations with special performances by world-renown artists such as Beyonce, Ludacris, The Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna and Akon, among other prestigious guests.
Guests staying in the Executive rooms and suites enjoy exclusive access to the Executive Lounge for private meetings and entertainment. Enjoy soft music, watch television, or conduct discrete one-to-one meetings over drinks and canapés.

For over a decade, The Sheraton Addis has supported and displayed Ethiopian art, providing a venue to new talent at the Art of Ethiopia exhibition.
Since the second exhibition in 2009, all featured artists will be generously contributing a portion of their proceeds towards the Sheraton Addis Art Endowment Fund. This fund aims to promote Ethiopian artistic talent in Addis and across the country, helping us to better appreciate the world around us, explain it, and sometimes escape from it - as Picasso once stated: "The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life from our souls."
History of "Art of Ethiopia"
The Art of Ethiopia started in the year 2008 by the Sheraton Addis. The hotel has collected for over 12 years art works from local galleries and felt that the Ethiopian artists should benefit from the exposure the hotel could give them. Furthermore, the art show is part of the hotel's Community Outreach Programme. For each year's exhibition, the hotel creates an art catalogue that is sold to visitors and guests. All proceeds from the sales of the catalogue go towards the Sheraton Addis Art Endowment Fund which supports local art schools artistic initiatives in the city of Addis Ababa.
Over 120 artists have displayed their art in the hotel's Grand Ball Room Lalibela since the start of the exhibition, accounting for over 2000 pieces of art work. The success of the event and positive feedback encouraged the hotel to make this exhibition an annual event in Addis Ababa.
