A good conference centre for the 3-day Seminar, and helpful staff in the Byblos and Europa meeting rooms. A grand variety of dishes during lunch. I ordered boxes of Lebanese sweets as gifts from the Mosaic restaurant, which were packed in beautiful boxes with the hotel logo.

This is a great hotel, probably can be considered one of the best in Beirut. The service is good, but needs a little more work to bring it up to international standards, considering the prices. Some tweaks I'm how the service is handled, some improvements to the room amenities including TV, shower, power outlets and coffee station. They're all good,...

Phoenicia is an outstnading traditional luxury palace, with all the glitter: marble everywhere, ton of staff, old-world elegance and refinement everywhere. Incredible breakfast! Nice outdoor pool. Good location on the sea front. The only negative is an extra charge for the internet.
