Our airline put us in this hotel when our flight was rescheduled for a day later. My experience could not have been better. The room was typical of a U.S. chain high rise hotel: large, spacious room, big bathroom with amenities including hair dryer, free bottled water, stocked mini-bar,and all the services needed. There is a large restaurant serving buffet-style classic Indian, Western, and European food while the mini-mall the hotel is in also has a Middle Eastern restaurant (we had drinks and snacks there after our extra day of touring) and food court which wasn't open when we were there, and an ice skating rink. It was close enough to the airport for the airline to send us there and shuttle a plane load of people back and forth, but was not right next to it. We spent our extra day in Nairobi seeing missed sights, but arranged our own van, since there were several of us. It seemed close enough and we were back in time to visit the mall restaurant and get the shuttle for our evening flight. All personnel I met were very helpful, pleasant and courteous. I liked everything about this hotel and would recommend it, but as perviously stated it looks, feels, and is like this type of hotel found anywhere in the world. Nothing new or distinctive of Kenya or Africa. The airline paid for our stay, so I can not comment of value for cost.
