Whether you are planning a holiday or stopping over for business, you won’t be disappointed when you choose to stay in either of IHG’s Nairobi hotels. A key financial hub and the biggest and boldest city in Kenya, there’s plenty to explore and enjoy with just a little planning and consideration. Start with the Kenyetta Conference Centre and you’ll get a feel for both modern and traditional Africa. The building towers over the City Square and offers access to a viewing platform where you can soak up the sun drenched city vista. Just outside the city centre, the National Museum offers a good range of cultural, geological and natural-history exhibits as well as contemporary East African art.
Getting around Nairobi can be as entertaining as it is practical, with a choice of regular public bus services, private taxis and the privately owned Matatu with their neon lights, blaring music and flat screen televisions. Shoppers will be attracted to the daily City Market or the weekly Maasai Market where you can barter for souvenirs and clothes.
Local food features camel, ostrich and even crocodile meat, but don’t fret if that doesn’t whet your appetite. Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Italian, French and African cuisines are just some of the world flavours to be found in Nairobi. The Bomas of Kenya offers traditional entertainment in the form of dances, songs and beats such as Swahili taarab music, Kalenjin warrior dances and Embu drumming. In the evening, head to the suburbs for the best of Nairobi’s nightlife and live music events.
Nature should be at the heart of any visit to Nairobi, with a multitude of natural attractions to be enjoyed. Start with a picnic at the Nairobi National Park before moving on to see rhino, lions, buffalo and more in their natural habitat. Or, if watching wildlife isn’t enough for you, get up close and personal with the cheetahs at the Nairobi Animal Orphanage, situated at the entrance to the park. Rise up on a platform at the Langata Giraffe Center to touch, feed and photograph a giraffe or see the selection of slithering and sliding creatures at the city’s Snake Park.

We have been IHG members for a while and have stayed in hotels all over the world and this hotel was absolutely top of the line! The food was good, the service was incredible, the staff was helpful[More]
