Owned by Kamcan Properties Limited, the hotel is strategically located in the upmarket suburb of Hurlingham, close to the city center and within easy access from the surrounding business areas of Westlands, Kilimani and Nairobi Central Business District.
The hotel is also a few kilometres from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and the Wilson Airport.
“Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi, Hurlingham is a significant addition to our fast growing portfolio in the region offering a perfect blend of stylish comfort and genuine service at an honest value,” said Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International.
“The hotel is yet another example of our conversion friendly strategy that highlights our ability to convert hotels successfully within a short period of time and have them join our system while delivering value to our partners and creating memorable experiences for our guests in exciting new destinations.”
Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi, Hurlingham features 96 spacious and modern rooms as well as food and beverage sections, including an all-day dining restaurant, a rooftop restaurant with spectacular city views and a bar and lounge, making it a convenient spot for just hanging with friends or family.
Other hotel facilities include a fitness center, a rooftop pool and 8500 square feet of flexible meeting spaces.
It also provides all of the brand’s defining elements including the signature Four Points bed, free bottled water in all rooms and suites, fast and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, and an energizing breakfast with fresh coffee that helps guests start and end the day right.
“By introducing a Four Points property, we expect to attract travelers familiar with this popular global brand and everything it has to offer,” said Vivek Mathur General Manager Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham.
