This was our first trip to Egypt and frankly I was excited but also worried. We are so used to the U.S. standard of service and hospitality that I was sure there was no way that people could match up to that standard......boy was I wrong......
Fairmont at Nile City was just SPECTACULAR. The staff was always pleasant,extremely helpful and professional. I loved the fact that most everyone spoke English.
The hotel was spotless, the fresh flowers were beautiful, the music at night in the lobby lounge was fantastic, and the bathrooms were extremely clean. Everywhere we walked there were staff who asked if they could help us....and they meant it.
We had a room that had a balcony with the Nile view, again SPECTACULAR.
The bath was a new concept...there was a window from bath into the room so you could actually view the Nile if you wanted to....a glass of wine and the view of Nile while you are bathing....who would have thought.
We dined at Fairmont's Napa Grill...the food was out of this world.... interestingly enough we got a visit from the Chef. We found out that he actually was from Napa. That night I noticed that the Chef came out to a few tables and personally asked how their food was was... I love that kind of detail and care. Ohhhh when I left my purse on the floor at the restaurants the staff ran and brought a special nice stool to put my purse on...wow I thought....what attention to detail!
After all that fine dining and wine ....I had to visit the gym....
The gym had numerous stair masters, cross trainers and treadmills facing the Nile, it had free weights and a big room for Pilates and personal training. Although I didn't get the personal trainer I did meet her.
Overall, when we go back to Egypt (and this time I will only be excited and not worried) ... I will only stay at Fairmont Nile City. I am looking forward to another spectacular return....
Thank you Fairmont and staff for making our stay remarkable and unforgettable.
