The Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino reopened recently after extensive renovations to reveal modern interiors, refreshed public spaces and innovative dining concepts. These include 326 fully renovated rooms and suites, an all-new Sheraton Club Lounge on the 26th floor that offers panoramic views of the city and six distinctive restaurants and bars that are a culinary odyssey of authentic and unique experiences.
“There is no other city like Cairo that offers such history, a rich community and culture, and mystique that has intrigued the world for thousands of years,” said Hans-Joerg Kreitner, General Manager of the Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino. “This was our very first Sheraton Hotel in Africa and an integral part of the city’s social fabric. The hotel still evokes a special memory for anyone who has grown up in Cairo or has been visiting the city over the years, a childhood memory of a family vacation, or a special celebration or simply a memory of the place to watch the glitterati of Cairo in the yesteryears. We are proud to showcase our transformation so that we can continue to be the gathering place for our local community and visitors alike.”
A weekend of celebration kicked off on November 7 at the Sheraton Cairo Hotel & Casino which hosted the ‘Heart for the City’ experiential tour’s third stop. The immersive experience captures Cairo’s heritage and brings to life legendary monuments that make Cairo magical.
‘Heart for the City’ is a tour that celebrates communities and Sheraton’s role within them, featuring one-of-a-kind immersive experiences designed specifically for each destination. Each experience features fun and unique visual perspectives on local icons, places, and ideas central to the city’s identity. The stop in Cairo highlighted the fact that the city is home to some of the most-recognizable structures on earth – the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, and other unrivaled antiquities. From an endless staircase to the watchful eyes of two imposing felines, guests will be engaged and entertained as they experience the city and Sheraton in a whole new way.
As a part of Sheraton’s transformation journey, the tour also offers visitors the ability to immerse themselves in the future vision of the Sheraton Hotels brand experience. Guests will get a peek at the upcoming redesign of Sheraton via a dynamic projection mapping experience that will show visitors how the brand will utilize space redesign and curated amenities and services to enable gathering and productivity.
Along with the immersive vignettes, the Cairo stop featured Sheraton’s community voices programming that invited unique local personalities, businesses and groups to join at the hotel during the weekend to give talks, share demos and create presentations for guests and locals. The complimentary programming features thought leaders who led in-depth discussions and presentations in their areas of expertise.
