Executive Residency by Best Western Nairobi
Situated in a prime location, along Riverside Drive, the Executive Residency by Best Western Nairobi offers an upscale place to call home when travelling for business or to visit family and friends. The 48 serviced apartments include a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, living space, high-speed internet and daily housekeeping services. Guests are also welcome to enjoy the hotel’s many amenities, including a heated pool, fitness center and rooftop restaurant.
The hotel will utilize resource-efficient design features and technologies to reduce its environmental impact and save on operating costs. Natural ventilation and a reduced window to wall ratio have eliminated the need for an HVAC system, while LED lighting, solar photovoltaics and a heat pump for hot water generation have further reduced the building’s energy use. Dual-flush water closets and low-flow plumbing fixtures were also installed to reduce the building’s water use.
The Executive Residency by Best Western Nairobi has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
