BRUSSELS / NAIROBI - April 23, 2017
Park Inn by Radisson, the colorful and dynamic midscale hotel brand, today announces the opening of the first Park Inn by Radisson in Nairobi’s Westlands. The Rezidor Hotel Group now has three hotels operating in East Africa with an additional two opening within the next quarter.
Park Inn by Radisson Nairobi Westlands is Rezidor’s 35th hotel in Africa. The Group’s Africa & Indian Ocean portfolio now features 16,600+ rooms in operation and under development.
Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, has risen to become a thriving modern capital and one that is regarded as the commercial center of eastern Africa. Located in the popular Westlands area of Nairobi, the new Park Inn by Radisson is close to the CBD, with convenient access in and out of the city. The hotel is also in proximity to the local headquarters of the UN and several international businesses.
“This iconic ‘tablet-shaped’ hotel is set to make a big mark on Nairobi’s landscape and Rezidor’s African portfolio. Before the doors opened, the hotel has already claimed the Best New Hotel Construction & Design at the 2016 Africa Property Awards. This landmark property will certainly set the bar very high for the midscale hotel brands in Africa, with its contemporary design and architecture, and international standards,” said Marc Descrozaille, Area Vice President of Africa & Indian Ocean for The Rezidor Hotel Group.
The hotel’s 140 rooms are impeccably designed, vibrant and spacious and feature a host of amenities purposefully built to suit the needs of today’s modern traveler looking for international midscale hospitality experience. The Live-Inn Restaurant serves fresh and carefully selected ingredients to create outstanding international, modern Kenyan and regional cuisines in an eclectic, yet cozy atmosphere. The Live-Inn Bar offers guests a stylish and relaxing ambiance with indoor and outdoor seating, making it an ideal venue to sit back and relax with colleagues and friends. The hotel also offers themed nights, sumptuous live show barbeques and refreshing signature cocktails as guests take in the mesmerizing panoramic views of the city below in The Attic Rooftop Bar.
The hotel has five spacious meeting rooms as well as an event terrace. The amenities within and the innovative and high on technology meeting spaces, place it at the forefront of meetings and events. The hotel also features a fully-equipped gym and high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the hotel.
“My team and I are thrilled and honored to open the first Park Inn by Radisson in Nairobi. This next generation, mid-scale hotel will bring to Nairobi an uncomplicated approach in a contemporary and vibrant atmosphere,” said Carsten Wappler, General Manager of Park Inn by Radisson Nairobi Westlands. “I look forward to working with my incredible team and partners to allow this iconic property to reach its true potential, showcasing our dynamic Park Inn hotels and international standard of hospitality to the world.”
