Hotel Review: Le Meridien Cairo Airport

Le Meridien Cairo Airport

Elite Status: Marriott Gold

Le Meridien Cairo is a 5-star Category-1 Marriott property located across the street from Cairo International Airport Terminal 3. It is connected by an elevated walkway, which you can access within the terminal.

I probably stayed here for 4 hrs as I wanted a place to lie down for a few hours and shower. I booked it prior to the August 26 Starwood/Marriott merger, and paid 2,000 SPG points, because it’s a weekend stay.

Check In/Check Out

They only had one check in counter at 2 am, though one of the desk managers stepped up and processed my check in.

Same with check out, but it didn’t take too long.

Room

I was given a King bed room. It is a decent size, with King bed, work desk and lounge chair with a table. On the table, there was a nice little welcome amenity of petit-fours, welcoming me to Le Meridien Cairo.

There were no power outlets by the bed, so I charged my electronics on the desk. The wifi worked fine.

Bathroom

A little on the small side, it has a long rain shower and single vanity.

They stock Le Meridien shower products.

Service

Friendly and efficient.

Overall

Le Meridien Cairo airport checks the list for a good hotel airport – proximity, speed and comfortable rooms. The location is excellent, you can access the hotel from the terminal, so if you have a short layover and don’t want to deal with the horrors of Cairo traffic, it’s an excellent choice.
