This modern hotel was the final stop on a two week small group tour of Egypt in early December 2011. It has many of the throwback features of its US origins--efficient front staff, air conditioning, spacious, sleek, well designed lobby and rooms. Most of the signs are in English first (American version). This was a necessary reintroduction to our departure and within a few minutes of the international airport. Once outside, you are clearly back in Egypt and an attractive suburb of Cairo. Filini, the Italian restaurant on site, had good food and Italian style coffees. Our group table shared several platters which we all tasty and well flavored with little resemblance to this former land of the pharoahs. The lobby bar is a quiet retreat but keep your cocktail orders close to the menu. My husband was taken aback by the sweet vermouth substituted for dry in his martini. Just one of the few reminders here that you are in a predominately Muslim country where few of the observant drink liquor, even if they tend bar. If you are seeking something that reminds you of the country we are visiting, consider your options. However, if you are seeking a bit of a refuge with comfortable reminders of 'at home' comforts, the Blu is an excellent choice.
