Areen Design crafts two Four Points properties in Nairobi

Marriott is scheduled to open Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport on October 1. Earlier, Marriott opened Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham.

When Marriott opens the Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport on October 1, it will be the second Four Points property designed by London-based Areen Design in the city.

The Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport will have 172 guestrooms and a contemporary aesthetic. A double-height feature wall will be installed in the reception area, while the lobby café will have a display that changes over the course of the day. It will also have a rooftop pool. Meanwhile, the dining concept Pablo’s will debut later this year.

In April, Marriott opened the Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham within a former Best Western Premier property. Owned by Kamcan Properties Limited, the Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi, Hurlingham has 96 guestrooms as well as an all-day restaurant, a rooftop restaurant with city views and a bar and lounge. “The hotel is yet another example of our conversion friendly strategy that highlights our ability to convert hotels successfully within a short period of time,” Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International, said when the property opened.

Several elements from the original design were preserved. The business hotel has a "reimagined" reception area, and a new lobby café.

Marriott International is also currently developing a 365-guestroom JW Marriott in Nairobi, slated to open in 2020.
