Marriott Cairo to renovate main palace
That palace is the focus of the big news this fall, as the Marriott has just announced a comprehensive renovation to the building as well as several other changes to the property. Big improvements will be made to facets of the palace, which includes over a dozen meeting rooms, the Omar Khayyam Casino, a dozen places to eat and drink and a battery of shops -- all while keeping the historical angles of the property well-preserved.
In addition to the main palace improvements, a swath of rooms in the west wing will be eviscerated to make space for a larger, more comprehensive spa facility. Those updates are scheduled to finish some time in 2012.
All total, the full renovation should add a great deal of improvement to an already outstanding property on the banks of the Nile. We can't wait to get back to check things out.
