The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo undergoes $90M revamp

The Arabian Construction Company (ACC) has been tapped for the $90 million-refurbishment of The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo as part of its conversion from the former Nile Hilton.

The revamp will include interior finishing, mechanical electrical works and plumbing to modernize the 13-story hotel that spans 64,000 square meters/688,890 square feet.

The 370-room landmark built in 1959 along the shores of the Nile is owned by Misr Hotels, a subsidiary of The Holding Company for Tourism, Hotels and Cinema.

Having operated in the UAE since 1968, ACC has been involved in other hotel projects including Emirates Palace Hotel, Princess Tower, Etihad Towers, and the Rotana Hotel Tower Amman, the tallest building in Jordan.
