Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has announced the reopening of the Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino, a city landmark for more than four decades. The hotel emerges after extensive renovation to reveal a vibrant aesthetic with modern interiors, refreshed public spaces and revitalised dining concepts. Perched on the West Bank of the River Nile, it enjoys a prime location in the heart of the city, just steps away from the Egyptian Museum, Cairo Opera House and the 70-storey Cairo Tower.
“Sheraton Cairo was our first Sheraton hotel in Africa and has been a local icon since its opening in 1971,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International. “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.”
The hotel’s 326 fully renovated rooms and suites feature a blend of modern design with a warm palette and the Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience. Sheraton Club rooms offer exclusive access to the Sheraton® Club Lounge, a private space located on the 26th floor providing views of the city, where guests can enjoy complimentary breakfast, drinks and snacks during the day. Leisure facilities include an fitness centre with cutting-edge equipment available 24 hours a day for in-house guests, a pool and a wellness centre.
Six restaurants and bars create an enriching culinary voyage. 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 favourites complemented by coffees, teas, beverages as well as shisha flavours. Giannini’s, the first New York-Italian-style restaurant in Egypt, explores the joy of communal dining as the chef prepares special dishes. Inspired by mystical voyages and the many lands and travels that have found their place in Egyptian heritage, Rawi features undiscovered pairings of local ingredients and regional Arabic cuisine that lend their flavour and identity to the menu at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests can look forward to starting the day with fresh coffee, pastries and savouries served at the Bridge Café located in the hotel’s upper lobby, before moving to the Pool Bar to enjoy the fun atmosphere and eclectic mix-and-match menu, followed by an evening of music and classic cocktails at Studio70.
