A stunning former palace on the Nile.

Pros: Quiet
A respite from the heat of Cairo in the summer. The swimming pool was perfect with a beautiful waterfall. The hotel was elegant, but not stuffy. The security was tight with a guard house before entering the drop off area and then a scanner to walk through as you entered the lobby. This was before the uprising. The check in was smooth and we were upgraded to a Nile view room with their huge balconies. The room was lovely, with new furnishings, and immaculate bathroom. We walked from the Egyptian Museum to the hotel across the river. Otherwise, we had a tour guide that picked us up at the hotel for sightseeing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Marriott Palace Beginning to show its age

The Marriott on Gezira Island has two things still going for it...history as a 19th century "palace" and its garden restaurants. Apart from that it could use a facelift. The clientele while I was there had changed from business types to regional family so the ground floor pool was pretty much a childrens venue. Try to stay in a room facing the river rather than the gardens if you need quiet - the palace roof shows open air films in arabic nightly and the gardens have a band playing until after 1am. Watch out for a 12% "service charge" on your room rate! Another tax - 10% sales tax is applied to the 2% city tax (Other hotels wrap these amounts into the up-front rate). The Marriott's river boat, "Maxim" is still one of the best deals on the Nile giving two hours of live entertainment and a three course meal for about $*. If you want bottled water, buy from one of the stores just outside the Zamelek Tower - the hotel mark-up is 10 times the normal rate

Great For Families

The Cairo Marriott was great hotel for a family trip to Egypt. The staff went out of their way for us, with early checkin, and late checkout. They have a good tour desk to help arrange visits to various sights in Cairo. The staff is very kid friendly, too. The hotel itself is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. There is an extensive selection of restaurants in the hotel.
