Four Points Hotel by Sheraton which was initially managed by Best Western Premier has finally opened its doors after the completion of the rebranding.
Kamcan Properties Limited which is the owner of the property is the first to be managed by the hotel franchise Marriot International in the country. Its sister property, Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport owned by AirMarc Ltd is set to open later this year.
Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International confirmed the news and said that hotel is an important addition to the fast growing portfolio of Marriott International which offers a perfect blend of style and good service.
“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.
The rebranded 96-room property is located in Hurligham, Nairobi and sits on half an acre piece of land with the rest of the land being reserved for a 100-car park, garden and drive way.
“By introducing a Four Points property in this region, we expect to attract travellers familiar with this popular global brand and everything it has to offer,” said Vivek Mathur General Manager Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham.
Marriott International at this stage is also developing a 365-room JW Marriott in Nairobi which is projected to open in 2020.
This initiative will substantially enhance the brand’s presence in the country.
Nairobi has recently seen an increase in the number of hotels while several developments are expected to come up later in the year. This is increasingly putting the capital city on the map even though it is the hub of East Africa.
