Sheraton Hotel Ikeja roof collapse

The advertising body of Nigeria were having a conference at the banquet hall of Sheraton hotel in Ikeja this afternoon when they noticed severe leaking in the roof. The attendees had to move to a separate part of the room, but less than a minute later, the roof caved in and guests had to rush out of the conference room out of fear...

The attendees complained that no management of Sheraton came out to apologise to the guests, that they were more concerned about guests not taking pictures but a LIBer managed to take a few and sent it in. See another photo after the cut...

Sheraton? Isn't this a supposed 5 star hotel? Oh, na the Naija branch so we know what to expect.

Eida said...

Make Sheraton compensate them individually or people, proceed to the courts that's exactly what they'll get in the US or in the UK.

We had an official program last month in the same venue. The roof kept shaking. I asked a staff and the person said it was quite normal that the ceiling has been making those noises and shaking for a long while.
Thank God it wasnt us.

Note: those ppl are entreprenuers; business moguls who employ graduates and drive a critical sector called "integrated marketing and communications"

It is not just a lack of maintenance culture. People make money in business and do not think of plowing back. The business starts to suffer while the owners fly first class to dubai to attend birthdays and weddings!

Mr. Irresistible said...

Ooppss! Thanks goodness it was noticed on time. What would have happened if it'd caved in when attendees were in. Jeez! Would have been a disaster!

Anonymous said...

This is absolutely ridiculous,imagine some one sleeping on certain day in Sheraton and your bed gets carried way or the building collapses. This hotel can no longer be relied on.

Anonymous said...

That picture is just a big lie. I believe young journalist should try and be honest. I'm sure the LIBer who sent in this picture did so out of sheer greed. For your information, there is a massive renovation going on in Sheraton and this pix taken was from one of the spots being renovated. Pls confirm your stories before publishing

Anonymous said...

On behalf of Sheraton lagos hotel i apologise for this......I guess they are actually undergoing some renovations...

Gbam with all the money they collect.never a maintenance culture in this country.LIB abeg take pictures well.

I was the facilitator delivering a paper when part of the roof caved in this afternoon at Sheraton Hotel Lagos.

I was relieved nobody was physically hurt but it was quite scary being in the room when it happened.

They had it coming. Event the management of Sheraton Abuja is quite poor. This country is always interested in taking but not putting anything back in.

They didn't know before? Sheraton Abuja is an equal mess too from what I hear. The governors and presidency should have been there to see the fruit of their labour. If they focused on the right things, there would be building regulations that managers have to conform to. Nigeria has no earthquakes, yet buildings will be falling down

Ohh pleaseee, be forming what you're not there. Some of the rooms in Eko hotel have box tvs too!!!

They should just demolish the hotel and give out the land to guru mahraj to promote his ministry.
