We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Nairobi for two nights before our safari and for one night after. The staff was friendly and helpful, and addressed us by name on our return to the hotel. We had two rooms and both were clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Construction near the hotel made getting in and out somewhat of a hassle, but that wasn't the hotel's fault. The hotel is located in a neighborhood with few, if any, restaurant options. Perhaps as a result, the breakfast buffet was outlandishly expensive (more than US$30 per person) for a thoroughly average offering. Dinner in the hotel was more reasonably priced, but something he ate there made my son sick the next day. In advance of our arrival, I inquired by email about a hotel-aranged pickup at the airport and was quoted a price of $30 per person. Through a World Bank connection we instead used JimCab and were happy with the service and the price. Check out took longer than necessary because the front desk kept the housekeeping staff scurrying from room to room to check on mini-bar usage.
