JW Marriott officially becomes manager of Mena House

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. The news comes after EGOTH’s Managing Director for Technical Affairs was referred to Cairo Criminal Court by the Prosecutor General for allegedly “requesting and receiving three separate bribes to task hotel renewal projects at the JW Marriott Hotel, the Cairo Marriott Hotel, and the Mena House Hotel to specific suppliers and contractors.”
