5 Reasons to Stay at the All-New JW Marriott in Nairobi

JW Marriott just unveiled its second property in Kenya with the opening of the JW Marriott Hotel Nairobi.

Standing as the tallest hotel in the country with 35 stories in the Westlands commercial district, JW Marriott Hotel Nairobi captures the essence of Kenya’s natural beauty and heritage, offering travelers a peaceful escape for the mind, body, and soul.

The hotel features 315 sophisticated guestrooms, five internationally-inspired dining destinations, a luxury Spa by JW, swimming pool, fitness center, and eight exceptional event spaces for gatherings and celebrations. An additional 51 spacious serviced apartments and a sky bar & lounge are slated to open later in the year.

“JW Marriott Hotel Nairobi perfectly embodies the city’s contemporary yet mindful urban lifestyle. The property combines the warmth of African hospitality with serene spaces where guests can disconnect from distraction, focus on the present moment, and reconnect with what matters most to them,” says Helen Leighton, Vice President, Luxury Brands & Communications, Marriott International, Europe, Middle East & Africa.

An Urban Sanctuary

The hotel’s interior design is inspired by the spirit and story of an African adventure. Expect an earth-toned color palette of savannah browns, Maasai reds, cultural terracotta, and safari green.

This intentionality allows guests to connect with the essence of Africa, while enjoying the comforts of a modern urban hotel.

Situated on the nine top-most floors of the high-rise tower, spacious serviced apartments offer the most luxurious, exclusive experiences for long-stay guests and family groups in one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, but throughout the property, a collection of unique works of art – from sculptures and handmade ceramics to wall murals and regional textiles – incorporate all guests into the breathtaking Kenyan landscape.

Rich Culinary Experiences

JW Marriott Hotel Nairobi is home to several sophisticated dining options featuring a variety of international cuisine.

All-day MIDI Café & Patisserie creates the ideal spot for quick breakfasts, light lunches, or afternoon coffee and cake, while Myna Restaurant is the spot for international food with African flair, serving sumptuous buffet-style breakfasts and family Sunday brunches, as well as lunches and dinner from its indoor and outdoor terrace setting.

Hudson Tavern Bar & Grill is the ideal setting to relax while watching live sports, and, slated to open later this year, Mr. Pang Sky Bar & Lounge, situated on the 31st floor of the hotel, is set to become the city’s evening hotspot, offering modern Pan-Asian cuisine and upscale mixology offerings.

But the most interesting may be the fine dining restaurant Mughal, which celebrates the esteemed cuisine and culture of the Mughal Empire. The cocktail bar here is also a highlight, serving signature drinks and mocktails infused with Mughal ingredients and spices.

The property is perfectly situated for restful overnight stays for those visitors adventuring into Kenya’s magnificent game reserves. It’s also near Nairobi National Park, the world’s only national park within a capital city.

The area where JW Marriott Hotel Nairobi is situated, Westlands, is also a social and entertainment hotspot that features a number of top local attractions, including Nairobi National Museum, Karen Blixen Museum, Maasai Market, Bomas of Kenya, and Karura Forest, an urban upland forest on the outskirts of the city.

And you’ll arrive easily via the Nairobi expressway, which links the area to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, only a 20-minute drive away.
