On the evening of the 24th of October 2019, the City Lodge Hotel Group hosted a “welcome to the neighbourhood” and official opening for its City Lodge Hotel at Two Rivers Mall in Nairobi, Kenya. The hotel has been operating for two years now as it opened in phases – with this opening serving as the crowning event to officially open the hotel in a rapidly developing part of town.
In attendance where members of government, diplomats from various neighbouring countries, representatives from the United Nations, members from various tourism organisations and the media.
Dr. Chris Kirubi presided over the night, a prominent Kenyan businessman, entrepreneur, and industrialist. Thanking the City Lodge Hotel Group members in attendance, Dr. Kirubi said, “We are truly your partners. This hotel is part of the mall and the mall is part of you. We are proud of you.”
All attendees were warmly hosted by the full complement of staff at City Lodge Hotel at Two Rivers Mall, a staff of 42 Kenyans – another proud achievement to celebrate. This fact was highlighted by CLHG CEO, Andrew Widegger, pointing out how this hotel is the Group’s newest investment in the Kenyan hospitality industry, allowing the opportunity to provide direct employment for over 300 local Kenyans between their three hotels.
The 171-room City Lodge Hotel sits adjacent to Two Rivers Mall – East Africa’s largest mall and mixed-use development. Offering the same quality accommodation that South African CLHG clients would be used to, it features free and convenient parking, wireless internet access, #Cafe to serve meals and a sundowner bar service. Bedrooms are spacious and air-conditioned, offering televisions with a selection of channels and en suite bathrooms.
