Marriott International has reopened the iconic Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino following extensive renovation that features a vibrant aesthetic with modern interiors, refreshed public spaces and revitalized dining concepts.
Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International said, “The reopening of this hotel is a milestone in our journey as it not only showcases our transformation efforts around the Sheraton brand, but also reinstates our commitment to Egypt as a strategic growth market.”
Opened in 1971, Sheraton Cairo was the first Sheraton hotel in Africa. It is located on the West Bank of the River Nile, in close proximity to the Egyptian Museum, Cairo Opera House and the 70-storey Cairo Tower.
“We are committed to going above and beyond to relive that promise as we begin a new journey that stems from this rich and cherished legacy,” said Hans Joerg Kreitner, General Manager, Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino.
All the 326 rooms of the hotel have been redesigned with a harmonious blend of modernity and warm palette. Sheraton Club rooms offer exclusive access to the Sheraton Club Lounge, a private space where guests can enjoy complimentary breakfast, drinks and snacks with spectacular views of Cairo.
Sheraton Cairo features six distinctive restaurants and bars:
El Mawardia Depuis 1985, a social institution on the west side of the Nile for over 30 years is back in a new avatar showcasing local cuisine paired with international favorites and complemented by a thoughtfully cultivated assortment of coffees, teas, beverages as well as unique shisha flavours.
The first New York Italian style restaurant in Egypt, Giannini’s explores the joy of communal dining as the acclaimed chef prepares special electrifying dishes.
Inspired by mystical voyages and the many magical lands and travels placed in Egyptian heritage, Rawi features undiscovered pairings of local ingredients and regional Arabic cuisine that lend their unique flavour and distinct identity to the menus.
Located on the hotel’s upper lobby, Bridge Café offers fresh coffee, pastries and savouries; and the Pool Bar, a fun atmosphere and eclectic mix-and-match menu; and music and classic cocktails at Studio70.
Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino has over 1400 square meters of dedicated and unparalleled meeting space featuring a lavishly appointed ballroom, 13 meeting rooms and a fully equipped business center, all with state-of-the-art facilities and seamless connectivity through high-speed Wi-Fi.
Marriott International currently operates 18 hotels in Egypt across seven brands including JW Marriott, The Ritz Carlton, Le Méridien, Marriott Hotels, Renaissance, Sheraton and Westin.
It also has two additional hotels under advanced development including Mena House and The St. Regis Cairo.
