Nairobi, Kenya. Photo assignment for The Most Famous Hotels in the World: the Norfolk Fairmont
The Norfolk is a truly legendary hotel. Founded in 1904, it has provided an oasis for travellers in Nairobi for over 100 years. The open-air Lord Delamere Terrace serves food and cocktails all day, from sunrise to sunset. The hotel is frequented by dignitaries and celebrities, with the fragrant tropical gardens offering a welcome sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of this buoyant city. One of the outstanding features of this establishment is that everyone, from the bell boy to the barman, offers service with a genuine smile, and takes obvious pride in working in one of the most famous hotels in the world.
