Going through the reviews looking for a hotel in Nairobi, there seemed to be issues with so many of the hotels. In these cases, we usually settle on a chain hoping for some consistent quality and also for secuity rasons - that is why we opted for the Crowne Plaza. We were "satisfied" though not impressed. We ate in the restuarant on the first evening and it was OK. As was the room and the service. All just about OK. We stayed here just before Christmas and it was dead (seems to be more of a business hotel). They had quite a nice gym - probably the bit we liked the most.
The Crowne Plaza is really cut off. It would be OK if the surroundings were nice (nice gardens) but there is nothing. Lots of new buildings springing up in this area. Looking out the window is a bit depressing. During the day it is possible/safe to walk around downtown in Nairobi and for a future visit we would choose somewhere downtown or somehwere with nice grounds.
