When it reopens, the new hotel will feature a contemporary design by WZMH Architects/Frank Nicholson Inc. The Nile Ritz-Carlton will comprise 327 guestrooms, including 52 suites that offer views of the city. There will be two 432-square meter (4,650 square feet) Royal Suites, each featuring a magnificent grand entrance with floor-to-ceiling windows, offering a 270-degree panoramic view of the Nile, two bedrooms, a living room and dining area.
