CAIRO, EGYPT -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Discovering the past often creates excitement for the present and an intriguing infographic is doing just that for a historic Egyptian palace that is also highly rated among 5-star hotels in Cairo.
From its construction in 1869 as the Palace Al Gezirah to impress the visiting French Empress Eugenie to its most recent transformation, the Cairo Marriott Hotel & Omar Khayyam Casino has endured through Egypt's good times and bad for nearly a century and a half, almost always remaining a focal point and reflection of the era at hand. Beginning its journey outfitted with lavish furnishings and décor, the palace has hosted royalty and impressive ceremonies in its finest hours and during WWI served dutifully as a hospital under British occupation.
Magnificently restored by Marriott International during the 1970s, the palace, which was first transitioned into a hotel in 1894, now stands among famous landmarks in Cairo and, flanked by two stunning towers, is again playing host to world dignitaries and is the site for grand business and social soirees. With many of its rooms and furnishings preserved and restored to their original splendor, the historic hotel's adornments also include many of the decorative elements originally created by German architect Carl von Diebitsch when the palace was first designed to serve as a hospitality center for dignitaries traveling to Egypt.
