Cairo Marriott Hotel & Omar Khayyam Casino

This is a very nice hotel set on the Nile River and we got a good friends and family rate from my Marriott friend.  There are two towers which spreads this hotel out too much.  We bought the upgrade for 55 US to give us the Executive level which provided breakfast and a small supper and drinks in between and free internet in your room.  Free wine was only served between 5 pm and 7:30 pm.  The Executive area just happened to be in the other tower which was a 5 minute walk away which was a pain.  We had a nice balcony overlooking the Nile although the views are not that nice because Cairo is not that nice to look at.  The balcony was large enough to catch some sun rays though.  The inside of this hotel is very pretty and ornate and the security is very tight.  You need to go through airport style security to get into this hotel.  The fitness centre was great.
