Nairobi leads the continent in hotel investment:


Nairobi tops in African hotel investments
Business Daily
2013
Quote:
Nairobi has entered the global hospitality map with 11 new hotels set to open in the coming months as global chains tap into growing business tourism.

The hotels in different stages of completion are expected to add 1,469 rooms in the market, making Kenya the fifth most attractive destination in Africa for international hotel chains according to the 2013 Africa Pipeline Survey by W Hospitality, an industry advisory group.

This is the first time Kenya has made it to the top ten. In the top four spots are Algeria, Angola, Egypt and Ghana.

In the past five years the country, especially Nairobi, has attracted billions of shillings in the hospitality industry. Recent additions are the Villa Rosa Kempinski and the Best Western Premier hotels.

“Nairobi is the focus of attention in Kenya, with seven companies entering the market — Best Western, Country Lodge with Novotel and Ibis, Accor, Carlson Rezidor with Radisson Blu and Park Inn, Dusit, easyHotel and Kempinski,” said the report.

Most of these properties are in different stages of development and expected to open their doors in the next two years.

“Up until recently there has been a major shortage of decent hotels but we are seeing more and more coming into the market, which is a good thing,” said Agatha Juma, chief executive of Kenya Tourism Federation.

She projects that going forward, the investments will have to move to other counties, especially to the northern and western tourism circuits, which are undersupplied.

Major international hospitality companies have been aggressively looking to increase presence in Africa, which they see as the next growth market.
The most recent hotel to open is the Villa Rosa Kempinski in Westlands:

Hilton needs a new structure. Probably in the upperhill area or Westi.
Something like the one they are erecting in Kampala. CBD would be ideal but finding a good spot in town may be a challange.
