The new property, Fairmont Towers, Heliopolis, is the chain’s first in Cairo and features more than 48,000 sq. ft. of function space, including the main Canyon ballroom, accommodating 2,100, reception. Additional features include an outdoor heated pool, fitness centre and a Willow Stream Spa scheduled to open in late 2008.
The hotel’s 247 guestrooms offer either a classic or contemporary decor and feature 32-inch flat-screen TVs, wireless high-speed Internet access and bathrooms equipped with bathtubs, standing rain shower and sound systems.
A second adjacent property, the Fairmont Heliopolis, will launch a renovation programme during the first quarter.
