We stayed one night on arrival in Nairobi before starting our safari. We arrived about 10PM and were on the road by 8AM the next day. Given that, we had no time to appreciate, or even discover, all that the hotel had to offer. The room was weel appointed and the bed was comfortable; the shower was wonderful. The food at the breakfast buffet was varied and very good.
Wifi is free for members of the Fairmont President's Club, and we are glad we signed up for the free club prior to our travel, other wise internet access is almost $6 for one hour.
We arrived the evening before the unfortunate event at the Westgate Mall. Upon arrival, a security person went through my purse and carry on bag prior to entering the hotel. Interestingly, our suitcases did not seem to be checked at all.
