"I'll meet you at the Stanley" is a phrase that is well known among travelers to Nairobi. I've just returned from a trip to East Africa, Kenya and Tanzania. We stayed at the Stanley twice...once on the way into Kenya and then again for a night before our flight home. 12 years ago we also had the opportunity to stay in the historic hotel, whose guests included Earnest Hemingway, Hollywood stars, royalty from all over the world, and folks like us who want to enjoy the hospitality that the hotel is noted for. The Stanley boasts a few restaurants, The Thorn Tree Cafe and Thai Chi are the two that we visited. We had Breakfast at the Thorn Tree....a fantastic buffet, and dinner at Thai Chi...some of the best Thai food that I've ever had. We also had drinks in the same bar that Earnest Hemingway drank at...
Our room was very comfortable with a king bed. The newly renovated and upgraded hotel is better than ever. Classic and elegant without being stuffy. A very friendly and attentive staff. Say hello to Dominic when you get there...tell him Peter sent you.
