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 over 1000 rooms in the market, making Kenya the fifth most attractive destination in Africa for international hotel chains. This is the first time Kenya has made it to the top ten, with the top four spots belonging to Algeria, Angola, Egypt and Ghana.
