"Comparative Review of the Cairo Marriott and Casino, Hilton Ramses, Le Meridian (airport) and the Alexandria Four Season"
Comparative Review of the Cairo Marriott and Casino, Hilton Ramses, Le Meridian (airport) and the Alexandria Four Seasons We recently went to Egypt (three of us), one for business (myself), two (wife, adult daughter)for pleasure. Due to the business obligations, that led to our staying in four hotels, three in Cairo, one in Alexandria. I thought it might be of interest to have a single, comparative, review. Of potential interest, two of us are Marriott and Hilton Gold Elite members, which makes a difference at the hotels in Cairo (and part of the reason we chose those hotels). Generally, you would find the staff at all four hotels attentive: more so than in the US. That said, there were still rather large differences in how attentive and the quality of their attentiveness. Further, all four were quite reasonable hotels. None of them were off-putting. Again, there were rather large differences in how nice they were (generally in the same order). Last general piece, for the Cairo hotels, the order in cost went (most expensive first, but still quite reasonable, if their lower rate are available): Marriott>Hilton>Le Meridian. That is also the order of quality as discussed below. Marriott Hotel and Casino. Impressive place, both in terms of location/grounds and how they treat you. While check-in did take a bit more time, that was because the 5 airline employees in front of us were not overly fast. The lobby was nice, and there was some juice to drink. The room, itself, was not large (nor small) but very comfortable. Could use more light and a better work desk. The beds quite comfortable. Internet just a bit slow. Being Gold Elite members, they provided access to the Executive Lounge. Their lounge is great. Sort of like going in to a nice, but casual, restaurant. The wait staff in the lunge were awesome. We had dinner and breakfasts there, all of which were good (they make eggs to order, good buffet for other breakfast and evening reception items). Their hours were quite reasonable. Throughout our stay there, the staff was great. Definitely the best of the three hotels we stayed at in Cairo. Warning, I would avoid the Maxim river cruise nearby. It was loud and obnoxious with mediocre food, and you really did not get the feel you saw something special. Hilton Ramses: Well located, very functional hotel, very good view from the upper floors. Room was a bit smaller and a bit cramped for three, but still fine. Work area a bit cramped. Internet fine. The staff was quite attentive… but a bit overly concerned about getting 9s or 10s on the evaluation forms. (They pretty much told us outright that they need to get a 9 or 10 or it would reflect very badly on the hotel and that unit). Breakfast was great. Their lunge experience, on the other hand, was a step or two below the Marriott. The offerings were not at the same level in terms of quantity, range or quality. Also, the times to get various offerings (particularly a beer) was limited. It would have been really nice to get a beer when I arrived (about 10 pm) or after a hot walk around Cairo (about 3:30pm). Bottom line, a fine hotel, good staff, but a step below the Marriott in terms of room, staff, lounge, etc. (though maybye a bit better located). Le Meridian (Airport). We stayed at this location as we were flying out, and they had shuttle service and they were very reasonably priced. We also thought we had lounge access to relax. Bottom line: it is close to the airport, the airport shuttle leaves on time and is fast (10 minutes) and it is reasonably priced. The room was functional. The property was in a bit less good shape than the Hilton or Marriott. The staff attentive, but not quite as good at it as the other two. We were not allowd access to the lounge, though I did get a look in, and it was not up to the Hilton (nor the Marriott). The restaurant was fine, though missing some items on the menu. A fine choice for a stay before going to the airport. There is a good Chocolate store (desserts looked great, very reasonably priced chocolate) about five blocks away (House of Cocoa). The Four Seasons in Alexandria, like other Four Seasons, is a very upscale establishment, and there was nothing about this one that would harm their reputation. Attentive staff, very nice facilities, right on a good beach, good breakfast, nice meeting rooms, very nice rooms, nice pool area with hot tub. Only problem was that the meeting left virtually no time to enjoy the place.
Excellent Service, Best hotel ever. Would love to stay at every time. The hotel condition is very good and luxurious. Staff are very decent, helpful & provide a high quality service. Room is spacious, clean. Its an amazing experience.

I was always hesitant about a huge hotel that replaced a historical icon. But when I stayed there my feelings have changed. Elegance, service and quality standards makes this a great place. Not to ignore that I had a peasant upgrade to a suite. Go try it for yourself!
I was in room number 701 i visited le bar today and it was a great experience from the outstanding cocktails by Mark barman and magical game stuff by Joseph it was really great team and nice ambiance for couples
