Fairmont The Norfolk
One of the most prominent cities in Africa, Nairobi is at the heart of the African experience. Playing a dominant role in the development of the city since its earliest days is Fairmont The Norfolk. Built in 1904, the hotel continues to be one of the most beloved landmarks in the city, and the launch point for ‘bucket list’ worthy safari tours.
Located just minutes away from Nairobi’s best attractions, including the home of Karen Blixen, represented in the Academy Award winning film ‘Out of Africa’ and Sheldrick’s Elephant Sanctuary, the hotel is also just steps away from artisanal craft shops and modern shopping centers.
Adjacent to the Central Business District, which houses the city’s largest convection center, the hotel also compliments corporate travel with eight conference spaces, the largest of which accommodates upwards to 200 delegates.
Over the years, Fairmont The Norfolk has been refurbished to give it a modern touch while preserving its traditional charm. 170 guest rooms and suites, a heated outdoor swimming pool, health club, tropical landscaped grounds, and a range of restaurants, including the Lord Delamere Terrace, a popular rendezvous for international travelers and local regulars, Fairmont The Norfolk is undoubtedly Nairobi’s gem.
