The 41-storey Le Royal Meridien Nile Tower, one of the major developments of Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts in Egypt, has held a soft opening last month.
The tower occupies a dominant site on the western bank of the Nile on El Roda Island.
The hotel has been designed with sculptured curving sides angled to the shoreline to complement the existing Le Meridien Cairo Hotel and maximising the river position and to provide a spectacular view of the Nile from all guest rooms and balconies as well as the main public areas.
The new tower successfully expands the existing Le Meridien Cairo hotel facility into a contemporary hotel complex with nearly 1,000 guest rooms.
Offering a total of 28 outlets, all overlooking the Nile River, serving a broad selection of international cuisine with indoor and outdoor seating arrangements, Le Royal Meridien Nile Tower also provides extensive conference and banqueting facilities.
Another unique feature of the Tower is the revolving roof top restaurant. The restaurant, with a diameter of 30 metres, rotates 360 degrees in one hour offering spectacular views of the Pyramids, the Nile River and the city.
"Le Royal Meridien Nile Tower is being prepared to become Cairo's most exclusive luxury hotel. The Tower will be unique to the entire Middle East," says Aly Abdel Aziz, executive vice president of operations and developments, Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and regional director for Egypt and general manager Le Meridien Cairo.
Le Royal Meridien Nile Tower is owned by the Saudi Egyptian Touristic Development Company and cost $380 million.
