The Sankara Hotel The Sankara Hotel has opened its doors recently in NairobiOs WestlandOs area of the city, offering an additional 156 rooms and suites in a market buoyant with confidence of sharply-rising demand for meetings, conferences, and conventions coming to Nairobi. The recent peaceful conclusion of the referendum on a new constitution has rekindled global confidence, a much needed ingredient for the tourism industry, but in particular, the MICE market, which habitually shuns unstable and politically-unpredictable destinations in favor of stable and predictable ones. A number of new added hotel projects is reportedly underway in Nairobi but the Sankara, the first of several to come on line in the coming months and years, has beaten some of their upcoming competitors to the finishing line, albeit several months after the initially announced May opening. The new hotel is located not far from the long-established Jacaranda Hotel and several nearby major shopping malls, which helped to establish a new sub-business hub outside the central business district with easier parking and still more manageable traffic patterns and all the attractions and services otherwise previously only found in the heart of the city. Room rates start reportedly in the USD280 region [ETH] rack rates it should be pointed out [ETH] but contract rates for tour companies and corporate businesses will undoubtedly reflect a more realistic level of charges. The hotel offers several categories of rooms from standard all the way to a presidential suite. Aug 26, 2010
