Fodor's Review

The centerpiece of this large hotel is a breathtaking palace built by Khedive Isma'il to give French Empress Eugénie a suitable place to stay on her visit for the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. Unfortunately, you can't stay in the palace itself, because the Marriott's bright but comparatively indistinctive rooms are in two adjoining modern blocks. Rooms are rich but conservative, with dark woods complemented by deep blues and golds, and the same style carries on through the public areas.
