The Sarova Stanley launched itself into Kenyan history in 1902 by becoming the first luxury hotel in Nairobi and the gracious host of prominent world leaders, renowned authors, and international celebrities. These early years depicted the dawn of a new era, and the Sarova Stanley immediately distinguished itself as a beacon of luxury and unrivalled hospitality.
Since the early 1900s when Sarova Stanley opened its doors, the hotel's permanence in Nairobi became clear, and the Victorian fa?ºade was quickly expanded to embrace the immeasurable greatness that originated within its walls. 1922 saw the first order of a locally brewed beer, and the hotel's authentic Exchange Bar sowed the seeds that grew into Nairobi's first and only Stock Exchange.
With each enchanting suite and conference facility named after an important person or place in the hotel's history, the Sarova Stanley's illustrious guests play a supporting role in the grand traditions of the hotel and are engulfed in the warm hospitality, architectural charm, and unparalleled service.
