Global hospitality operator Best Western has opened its first African highend serviced apartments in Nairobi that caters to business executives and billionaires.
Best Western Hotels & Resorts senior vice-president of international operations Suzi Yoder said the executive residency is a new introduction in the hotel chain’s brands, which provides longer-term accommodations to business and leisure travellers.
“The latest addition to the Best Western Hotels & Resorts portfolio solidifies our presence in Kenya, which continues to witness increased synonymous growth on tourists and business travellers,” she said.
The one- and two-bedroomed property on Riverside Drive is Best Western’s third facility in Nairobi, signalling clients’ interest in the city as a business hub for the larger East African region.
Non-smoking apartments The five-storey building provides long and short-term visitors with 48 nonsmoking one- and two-bedroom apartments that include a kitchen, dining room, living room, high speed Internet access, flat screen TV, work desk area and daily housekeeping services.
The facility has pushed up a notch higher the competition for serviced apartments as Best Western will recommend its own facility to clients from across the 100 countries where it operates 4,100 outlets.
It provides a fitness centre and an indoor heated swimming pool.
The facility developed by Fedha Group seeks to fill the gap for serviced apartments for clients who prefer own meals within a home environment.
