April 27, 2011 - PRLog -- From the day Sarova Stanley opened its doors in 1902 it has been making history hosting royal safaris and a long line of living legends. The beginnings of a hotel  from wooden and tin buildings in 1902 on Victoria Street ( Tom Mboya Street) to  a larger premises on  Government road after the Great Fire in 1905; now known as Moi Avenue. In 1928, The New Stanley was the venue for a glittering ball for the Royal highness, The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Gloucester. During this period, there was a weeklong public celebration in Nairobi.

Princess Elizabeth and the duke of Edinburgh in 1952 were here for a function. Then after 2 days she was crowned Queen. This came shortly after the King died in his sleep while at tree tops. This momentous day granted Kenya an important role in the history of the British Royal Family. The Queen's coronation was celebrated with a road race through the Kenyan Bush, known as the "Coronation Rally". The race became an annual event, popularly known as the "Safari Rally".

It has been a heritage journey that has been embedded in the culture of Sarova Stanley. The Victorian theme transcends across every part of this magnificent hotel. So if you are looking for royal history, Kenya and most especially Sarova Stanley comes to mind.
