Concierge.com's insider take:

Across the river in the embassy and old palace district of Garden City, Cairo's newest Four Seasons hotel has become the city's see-and-be-seen business address. The high-ceilinged marble lobby, decorated with canvases painted by Egypt's culture minister, is the backdrop to various power hookups and leads into the Beyman department store (a.k.a. the Turkish Neiman Marcus), which carries European designers at European prices. Visiting foreign ministers and local industry titans often book dinner in the on-site steak house or Aqua seafood restaurant (which has a glassed-in VIP room). The 365 plush rooms are brighter and beiger than those at the Four Seasons by the Cairo Zoo. Rooms either look westward over the river and Roda Island or have eastern views over downtown toward Islamic Cairo and Saladin's citadel. In addition to having a spa and pool, the hotel is located directly across the street from a felucca rental dock where you can hire a captain and sailboat by the hour.

The broad tower sits beside the Belle Époque and Art Deco mansions of the Garden City district. "Staff never disappoint," and the food in the seven restaurants is "a fine combination of traditional Middle Eastern specialties and Western and Asian staples." Most rooms have outdoor terraces, soaking tubs, and bright decor. "I'm always sad to check out."
