Our daughter's wedding reception was held in the marquee because she wanted the backdrop of the hotel grounds in the wedding pictures. It helped of course that the recently renovated hotel has had the gardens beautifully landscaped into an ethereal experience with the Lagos Port and lagoon providing an unforgettable vision of nature. Add to this the fantastic service we...

Lovely, relaxing hotel in a city which is challenging. Reception staff helpful, room large and clean. Pool lovely and refreshing. That said, the food and drink were alarmingly expensive. Very good breakfast

This hotel is clean, the service is good, dining facilities are more than adequate and it's good for both business travellers as well as those on holiday. You tend to get quite a few cabin crew using this hotel as well.

I stay at the Federal Palace every time I come to Lagos given the proximity to our office. With every stay, things get better.
