Definately a great hotel. Spent 7 days here in February, 2009 and absolutely love dthe hotel. The concierge can handle any tour requests that you have. Food is good and fairly inexpensive with the exception of JW's steakhouse. Prices for steak are ridiculous so we didn't eat there.
Being a Platinum Premier was recognized at check in and we were upgraded to an incredible suite overlooking the Nile. Overall a great hotel. The JW is much farther out of town near the airport so if you are here for sightseeing then this is the hotel for you.
