One of the most famous business hotels in Nairobi, Best Western Premier in Hurlingham, is rebranding itself to Four Points By Sheraton Nairobi, in a move that sees Starwood Hotels & Lodges seek to expand in the region.
The new Four Points By Sheraton, the second in Kenya, is scheduled to open its rebranded doors officially in April 2017. What we’re sure will remain as is Pablo’s Restaurant, located adjacent to the lobby area of the hotel. What we aren’t sure will remain as is, is Level 88 at the Rooftop.
On its part, the Best Western collection also boasts a Plus Meridian property at the heart of the Central Business District, on Muranga Road, as well as an Executive Residency alongside Riverside Grove. The company also plans to expand to Tanzania and Rwanda soon.
Starwood Hotels & Lodges is, as of last year, a subsidiary of Marriott International, now the largest hotel chain on the planet including Sheraton, Le Meridian, W Hotels, St. Regis and Design Hotels. The Tribe Hotel in Gigiri area is also under the Starwood brand.
As Best Western Premier opened an outlet in Uganda’s Airport city of Entebbe, Four Points By Sheraton is also planning an Airport side 194-room property within proximity to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
