Sonesta Celebrates 25 Years in Cairo
(Boston) – Sonesta International Hotels Corporation is honored to announce 25 years of continuous operation in Egypt. The official anniversary was recognized on October 23, 2007 as the Sonesta Hotel Cairo celebrates 25 years of Sonesta management.
Sonesta had been operating in Israel for some time in the early 1980’s when the owner of a new hotel in Cairo approached the company to manage his hotel in the neighborhood of Heliopolis. Sonesta used food and beverage improvements in the hotel to become the social center for the city for both international travelers and local businessmen.
“It has been a pleasure to operate in Egypt, as the Egyptian people are extremely hospitable and eager to learn new skills and management styles,” said Stephanie Sonnabend, president and c.e.o of Sonesta. “In January, when we assume the management of the Sonesta Pharaoh Beach Resort Hurghada, Sonesta will manage a total of 12 properties in Egypt, including Cairo, Luxor, Sharm El Sheik (2), Port Said, Taba and the 5 cruise ships on the Nile.”
