One of the oldest and largest hotels in Cairo. But its age is only felt in its charm; the executive level rooms are all very modern, well appointed and nicely sized. Great city location on the Nile with easy access to local stores around the corner (including a Subway). The lobby, front desk and executive lounge can be crowded at times, so plan some extra time if you have tight plans.
Executive level privileges include free internet, (3) free pressings on day of arrival along with access to the lounge. This was explained in a nice index card given as I checked in. The lounge has a great breakfast and evening spread (much nicer than both the Conrad and Hilton lounges).
Upon check out, I was told my room rate was not high enough for the free internet and pressings. I was being billed. They said Gold & Platinum upgrades are not entitled to the Executive level services.
I have stayed at the Conrad and Hilton in Cairo and this Marriott is far above those in value and quality. The downside was the policy of the executive level benefits, this alone downgrades my hotel rating and my recommendation to work colleagues not to support this hotel.
