Marriott International, Inc. on Monday announced its first property in Kenya with the opening of Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham.

The new Four Points by Sheraton 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, as well as from the Kenyatta International Airport and the Wilson Airport. The hotel is owned by Kamcan Properties Limited.

“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.”

Designed for the modern traveler with an emphasis on approachable design and stylish comfort, Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham features 96 spacious and modern rooms, as well as food and beverage options, including an all-day dining restaurant; a rooftop restaurant with spectacular city views; and a bar and lounge where guests can experience the brand’s signature Best Brews™ program featuring an array of local beers.

Additional hotel facilities include a fitness center, a rooftop pool and 8,500 square feet of flexible meeting spaces.

The hotel 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.

“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 “and we are confident that the hotel will emerge as a preferred choice for travelers looking for stylish accommodation and a relaxing atmosphere whether they are on business or on leisure.”

Marriott International is also currently developing a 365 room JW Marriott in Nairobi, slated to open in 2020 which will substantially enhance Marriott International’s presence in the country.

Four Points by Sheraton continues to experience incredible growth momentum globally. In East Africa alone, the brand is set to open three more hotels later this year with the opening of Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport, Four Points by Sheraton Dar es Salam and Four Points by Sheraton Arusha.
