Dining options include the all-day dining restaurant Amphora, which offers Mediterranean cuisine and a spacious terrace; Armenian restaurant Mayrig; and Pan-Asian cuisine at Miss Li Lee which includes an outdoor terrace, colourful murals and contemporary design.

Haitham Mattar, managing director IMEA at IHG Hotels and Resorts, said:

“We are excited to open our first Crowne Plaza hotel – Crowne Plaza West Cairo-Arkan, in Egypt, and expand our brand portfolio to offer world-class hospitality options to travellers with diverse needs. Crowne Plaza is known to be an international premium hotel brand which is loved by business travellers across the globe. We are confident that this new addition to our portfolio in the region will be a popular choice with both domestic and international guests visiting the country.

“As the government of Egypt continues to encourage further economic development in the country, there are increasing opportunities for the tourism and hospitality sector. With our focus on the market and expanding portfolio, we are well poised to cater to this demand.”
