Anyone entering to/from CAI International's Terminal 3 airport should consider the Le Meridien Cairo Airport for their starting or ending stay. This property is a first class experience all the way starting with the ease of room checkin, the helpfulness of their friendly and professional staff, the maintenance of the property and rooms, and all the guest amenities that Le Meridien chain is known for. We stayed one night on our October 2023 arrival and one night on our November 2023 departure. Having traveled and sailed throughout Egypt with a private group of friends, we experienced lower-than-expected hotel rooms (even from name brand chains) and Nile River sailing cabins. So coming back before our departure flight out of Egypt was the right choice for us. A special shout out and Thank You must go to Salma Hussein, Senior Guest Relations Agent, who emailed me both times to welcome us to the Hotel and attend to any special requests we needed. While I did not make any specific request, we were upgraded to a suite upon our arrival both times as this was our 42nd Anniversary trip. A wonderful and personalized gesture that most other hotels would not have done. We highly recommend the Le Meridien for a stress free and amazing airport hotel experience!

check-in 3rd Sep/ Check-out 4th Sep : I am deeply disappointed with my stay at your property. The lack of integrity and poor attitude of your team towards guests is unacceptable. I had booked an additional room for my guest prior to check-in, but the lady at reception, Nancy, did not keep her word. I had spoken with Monica during check-in, who assured me that both rooms would have a better view and be closer to each other, if not next to each other. However, Nancy gave us rooms in two different wings without informing us, which was very upsetting. Moreover, when we checked room 408, the view was terrible due to ongoing construction outside. It was clear that Nancy had lied to us. The room service was also extremely disappointing. My order of OM Ali and grilled chicken with oriental rice took a very long time to be delivered. When the food arrived, there was no room service trolley, so I had to wait for it to arrive. Additionally, they forgot to bring a spoon for the Om Ali, and despite calling several times and speaking to the manager (a lady), nothing was done. I ended up using a fork. The service was terrible. During check-in, I was informed that an extra breakfast would cost USD 18. However, the next morning, when we had finished breakfast, they presented a USD 21 bill. When I asked why there was a variation in the bill, they told me that there were different prices for paying at the restaurant versus paying during check-in. Later, they offered to make the extra breakfast complimentary, but I insisted on paying the confirmed USD 18. Ahmed, the manager who tried to resolve the issue, was of no use. He only smiled and made small talk without looking into the matter. I urge caution when dealing with employees such as Nancy and Ahmed, and guest relations personnel like Monica. They have the tendency to change their statements as per their convenience. I am extremely dissatisfied with my experience and thank you for making my trip a horrible one.
