Marriott Mena House (near pyramids), Cairo, Egypt [Master Thread]

We stayed at the Mena House decades ago and found the location magical, overlooking the pyramids. I just learned that Marriott has signed a contract to manage the hotel.

The JW Marriott has signed a hotel management contract with the Egyptian General Company for Tourism and Hotels (EGOTH) to manage the Mena House Hotel, JW Marriott Hotel Cairo General Manager Magdy Naguib told Al Borsa. The property is split between an historic palace and an attached modern hotel building. Hotel renovations will be completed within days, he added, while the palace will be shut down for two-to-three years for renovations.

If I interpret that properly, the hotel side should open quickly under the Marriott banner but the historic side will be closed. I did not find it showing up yet on the Marriott website.
