Marriott's Four Points Nairobi Hurlingham opens in Kenya

(Marriott International announces the opening of Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham, the first of its five new hotel builds in East Africa.)

Marriott International has opened the Four Points By Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham, its first property in Kenya. 

The 96-guestroom Four Points, owned by Kamcan Properties, is close to the surrounding business areas of Westlands, Kilimani, Nairobi Central, the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and the Wilson Airport.

“Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Hurlingham is a significant addition to our fast-growing portfolio in the region,” Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, of Marriott International, said in a statement. “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 and have them join our system.”

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

By 2020, Marriott International said it plans to open a further 74 properties and approximately 16,169 rooms within the MEA region, bringing its total regional footprint to 221 properties and 40,816 rooms.

In East Africa alone, the brand is set to open three more hotels later this year, including Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport, Four Points by Sheraton Dar es Salam and Four Points by Sheraton Arusha.
