Marriott International announced plans to debut its Element Hotels eco-incubator brand in Egypt in early 2019, according to a statement from the hotel chain on Tuesday.
The 344-room hotel will be located in Heliopolis as part of Abraj Misr’s The Gate Project. Element Cairo will be developed by Abraj Misr and owned by Middle East Real Estate for Development.
The hotel will feature studios along with one, two and three bedroom suites, and will incorporate the use of natural light and “eco-minded sensibilities” aimed at travelers seeking extended stays lasting up to a few weeks.
Marriott’s Element brand can primarily found throughout the United States and Southeast Asia, and Element Cairo is set to be the largest Element branded hotel in the Middle East and North Africa, according to Amwal Al Ghad.
