"Cairo Marriott is the perfect hospitality and entertainment property to have launched a campaign that focuses on real human stories and capitalizes on emotions. The hotel embodies a repertoire of memories of its visitors' exciting tales. It is a chronicle of the cultural, social and nostalgic climates of Cairo and Egypt throughout the century", said Ghada Abd El Khalek, Director of Marketing Communications at Cairo Marriott.
Heba Issa, Director of Sales and Marketing at Cairo Marriott Hotel adds, "Even though Egypt has faced a lot of security issues recently, the room sales figures we get from the Gulf market continue to blossom. Cairo Marriott Hotel, located in the upscale district of Zamalek, is the best location for hospitality & entertainment and the ideal hotel to launch such a campaign as the property itself embodies the memories and tales of its visitors. For more than a century, the hotel has been a chronicle of the cultural, social and political life of Cairo and Egypt."
