  • The gardens of the hotel make a peaceful retreat from the city
  • The restaurants at the Marriott attract lots of Cairenes and expats, so it's a great place to feel the authentic atmosphere of the modern city


  • It's the biggest hotel in Cairo, so not for those who want more personal service

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. Room decor is rich but conservative, with dark woods complemented by deep blues and golds, and the same styling carries

on through the public areas.
