    Staff assistance with some issues we had was outstanding. Our flight didlnt leave until 11:30 on our departure day and because my wife was ill, they comped our room until 8:00pm that night. I couldn't believe it. Very nice service. Visiting in Nairobi is another story. Way too crowded with constant chaos and horrendous traffic.
