The Cairo Marriott Hotel is in the midst of its most extensive renovation project in decades. The landmark hotel, built around a 19th century royal palace, is seeing stage-by-stage work on its two towers, guest rooms and grounds.
Begun in early 2003, the extensive facelift involves stripping the old facade down to the cement and applying fresh coats of plaster and paint.
In response to a number of guest requests, a heating system will be installed to open the outdoor pool to year-round use.
The main thrust of the hotel’s renovation project, however, will begin in October. All 1,250 luxury rooms will be refurbished from top to bottom using the highest quality local and imported materials.
The design team will use this opportunity to remodel corridors and guest elevators, and to install a new air conditioning system.
Work has also begun on a new Japanese restaurant to open in the foyer.
