Great stay although expected more.Posted Oct 17, 2013
Pros: The look of the hotel - it was a Palace so you can feel its history and grandness. The food was OK and room service was great. The pool was nice.
Cons: The spa area could be renovated, needs some improvement.
The location was great, central to main streets in Cairo. Walking distance from many restaurants, cafes, Diwan bookstore. The only problem was that our room (with the Nile view) was terribly noisy from the traffic. Cairo is quite polluted too so there wasn't much to see from the balcony. Since the hotel is so big, we felt quite secluded from the hotel restaurants and various amenities. If I were to go back, I would prefer to stay near the garden and pool for a more relaxing scene.

Marriott Zamalek the best place to stay in CairoPosted Aug 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was in Cairo during the military crackdown, and i can't think of a better place to be stranded than the Marriot in Zamalek. There is no more pleasant place in Cairo on a summer evening than the Marriott gardens. Also a great place for mornig meetings before the sun gets too high. The pool is beautiful, and i even played tennis early every morning with a wonderful coach -- Osama. Service is impeccable, and always with a smile. The circumstances in Cairo were pretty tense, but I felt safe and very well cared for at the Marriott. I can't wait to return.

conference visitPosted Jun 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
A nice hotel. Very comfortable place. My wife and I were in the executive room. Had breakfast and dinner included in our package. Was the best choice. Only down side, free internet is restricted to 18th floor executive lounge. So we had to provide our own internet for everywhere else. The location is very secure and overlooks the Nile.

Live Like RoyaltyPosted Apr 22, 2013
Pros: Friendliness of staff
Cons: Beer prices.....Really!
Location: First rate
Clearly, a first class hotel on the banks of the Nile, one is treated like a visiting king. A former palace, the building is superbly decorated and staff treat residents like family always ready to go out of their way to make one's stay truly memorable. While the prices are fairly steep, the obvious security details are costly to provide but most welcomed in this day and age. Hopefully I'll be able to return one day but will make sure to purchase my beers across the street at Drinkies for 7.5 Egyptian pounds rather than the 42 at Harry's Pub.

Great place to stayPosted Jan 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
My husband and I loved our stay and will continue to go back to the Cairo Marriott. Every single member of the staff was polite and helpful. The food was excellent, and the service was great. The price was also good for the amenities we received. The only complaint is that we booked an Executive Room package, but the room furnishings could use an update. The bathroom was quite small and the furnishings were blah. However, none of that could dim the other wonderful aspects of the hotel and its staff.
