I stayed at the Cairo Marriott for 4 nights at the end of April for a business trip with a couple days sightseeing. At check-in, I specifically requested a quiet room away from the construction underway which I read about on TripAdvisor. I arrived to a 3rd floor room directly at the noisy expressway, with drilling and hammering next door. I immediately requested an upgrade to the business tower (seemed like that may have been the intention of the woman at Reception!)
Otherwise, no complaints. The location is terrific, as I explored Zamalek into wee hours feeling totally safe (solo guy). The garden café is a the best place in town for a relaxing drink or shisha. Hotel prices are expensive – as expected. I recommend walking to the corner and buying bottled water, soda, or beer for a fraction of the hotel prices. The fitness center and pool area facilities are excellent and included in the rate, so if you use them, be sure to include them in your decision.
My colleagues arrived later and wanted to stay at the 4 Seasons instead, so I spent 2 nights there. Definitely preferred the Marriott and would choose the Marriott for any future visits!
