I originally read an article on TravelWeekly about Tribe, an upscale hotel in Nairobi that is part of a growing trend of boutique hotels opening in the city. The hotel caters mostly to corporate and government employees doing business, with only about 20% of their business coming from tourist travelers:
According to General Manager Mark Somen, leisure visitors comprise only about 20% of guests, with government, corporate and aid organization business accounting for the rest. The U.S. is the No. 1 source market for Tribe, which currently enjoys an 87% occupancy rate.
Tribe is a very upscale hotel with rooms in the range of $280 to $320USD per night.
Accommodations include 320-square-foot deluxe rooms; 420-square-foot superiors; 500-square-foot junior suites; 550-square-foot, split-level “Loft” business suites; 700-square-foot Ambassadorial suites; and a 1,000-square-foot Presidential suite.
