DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Apr 10 – Marriott International has announced its first property in Kenya with the opening of Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi, formerly Best Western Hotel.

The 95 room hotel is 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.

With the acquisition of Starwood Hotels last September, Marriott International, in essence, acquired the Four Points branch.

The Hurlingham property, which had a minor facelift to align with the Four Points Sheraton Brand, will be operated by Marriott International under a Franchise arrangement.

“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.”

Another Four Points by Sheraton hotel is under construction near Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, as well as a 365 room JW Mariott Hotel at the 42-floor Avic International complex in Westlands slated to open in 2020.

Four Points by Sheraton Dar es Salam and Four Points by Sheraton Arusha are also part of the hotel’s strategic presence in East Africa.

“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

“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.”
