Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel

Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel has played a leading role in Kenya’s colorful history, and continues to be Nairobi’s finest and best-known luxury hotel.

The town and later the modern city of Nairobi grew up around Fairmont The Norfolk hotel, which still has its own private tropical gardens. The hotel is still the traditional starting point for safaris and the Lord Delamere Terrace is modern Nairobi’s popular meeting place, where drinks and light meals are served continuously from morning till late evening.

Fairmont The Norfolk was expanded in 1999 and subsequently renovated in time for its centennial celebrations in 2004. Further refurbishments are currently ongoing in the Delamere & Acacia Wing. The Nairobi hotel now offers accommodations in 165 guest rooms and suites, has eight conference rooms, the largest seating 175 delegates, a heated outdoor swimming pool, health club with gym, sauna and steam room and gift shops.
