The Boma is relatively new (officially from January 2013) and will be my pick for future trips to Nairobi. Getting to the hotel from the airport is easy compared to getting to the downtown hotels. For those who know, the turn-off for the hotel is before the first roundabout - a major time saver. The hotel itself sits inside a small complex owned by the Kenya Red Cross and includes a conference center and a three star hotel (the Red Court). The hotel security is good, and the neighborhood better than I thought it was going to be (the Government of Kenya Department of Energy is building its office complex next door). The basic rooms are large and very well appointed with just about every amenity I have seen in a hotel. The internet worked reasonably well (one can never tell if it is the hotel or the infrastructure of the internet in Kenya). The staff was very helpful and proud of their hotel. There is a pool, extensive spa (I saw a lot of it, but didn't use the facility), a good "bar & grill" restaurant, a buffet restaurant with an a la carte menu and a nice fitness center. The business lounge was very busy the night I was there - almost like a big city bar itself. The bathroom had a separate shower from the tub (I did get some water leakage out of the shower).
I don't think you can go wrong.
