The hotel previously housed former US President Barrack Obama three weeks before his inauguration in 2009.

Obama moved his family into the Presidential Suite at the historic hotel  after former President, George W. Bush, rejected his request to stay in Blair House, the White House’s guest residence.

According to various travel websites, a standard room at the hotel goes for between Ksh.37,000 and 58,000 ($368-579) while the Luxury one Bedroom Suite goes for the equivalent of Ksh.185,279($1,839).
