I am excited to be introducing a new hotel brand to the continent – especially a lifestyle and innovative one like voco. Throughout my career in hospitality I have been privileged to work across the country, however Rosebank holds a unique place in my heart. From the lively one-of-a-kind business atmosphere to the cultural richness and diversity, I’m excited to share the Rosebank and voco™ brand experience with the world.
// voco Johannesburg General Manager, Jessica Redinger
Her strong rooms division skills, combined with guest service delivery excellence are just some of the reasons she was selected for the new lifestyle hotel brand in Johannesburg.
We are delighted to welcome Jessica to the Valor family and this unique opportunity to open our first IHG partnered hotel. Jessica brings a wealth of experience to our team, as we position the voco brand firmly as Johannesburg’s most exciting and newest upscale lifestyle hotel.

Voco promises guests a hotel which offers exceptional service, but without the stuffiness. The style of the hotel is relaxed to provide visitors a welcoming feel, combining familiar comforts with the indulgences of a hotel.
Set to open later in 2021 in the heart of thriving Rosebank, Johannesburg’s upscale suburb and ever expanding business epicentre, the new voco is situated within ‘The Bank’ development at the corner of Cradock and Tyrwhitt avenues, a prime location next to the Rosebank Mall and The Zone.
voco looks to bring thoughtful touches with familiar comforts, luxury guestrooms and bathrooms, and the ‘Proud Mary’ restaurant and bar, which is already a new favourite for locals and visitors to the Rosebank neighbourhood. It is within a short walking distance to many corporate offices, shopping, nightlife and entertainment as well as the Rosebank Gautrain Station. Also within ‘The Bank’ development is a ‘Workshop17’ shared office space, providing co-working facilities with various meeting options.
