Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport, the second hotel to be built in Kenya by Marriott International, is said to be designed for “the modern traveller with an emphasis on approachable design.”
The new hotel that features spacious and modern rooms including suites, offers various dining options, including an all-day dining, a lobby café and a rooftop bar and grill.
With spectacular views of the Nairobi National Park on one side and the runway of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on the other, the rooftop bar and grill that has been named Tazama (look or see in Kiswahili) is aimed at offering guests a sense of authentic locale through food, music and art.
Marriott International says the hotel offers guests the Four Points by Sheraton Four Comfort Bed, complimentary bottled water in all rooms, fast and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and what it calls ‘an energising breakfast with fresh coffee that helps guests start the day right.’
Other facilities include a rooftop pool, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a modest spa, indoor and outdoor space for meetings and events and a complimentary shuttle into JKIA terminal throughout the day.
The hotel, that is strategically situated within the main complex of JKIA, is within easy reach from major highways and overlooks the famous Nairobi National Park, perfectly complementing the Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham, located in the city’s central business district which opened earlier in 2017.
“The hotel’s unique location together with its warm and genuine service and the defining elements of the Four Points brand is a winning combination that will set us apart,” says Vivek Mathur, General Manager of Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport. “We are committed to offering guests an uncomplicated travel experience and exactly what they need while on the road be it for business or for leisure.”
Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International, says Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport “is a great addition to our East Africa portfolio and strengthens our rapidly growing presence in the region. As a gateway city into the continent, Nairobi is a natural travel hub. We are confident that with its blend of stylish comfort and genuine service at an honest value, the hotel will meet the rising demand for high-caliber lodging in this fast-growing market and soon emerge as a leading choice among business and leisure travelers.”
The Four Points brand debuted in Kenya with the opening of Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi, Hurlingham followed by its recent foray into Tanzania with the opening of Four Points by Sheraton Arusha, The Arusha Hotel. It Marriot International says it is gearing up to open Four Points by Sheraton Dar es Salaam, New Africa Hotel.
