    Renovations Add Modern Flair to Luxury Resort

    Fairmont Heliopolis and Towers has recently debuted renovated guest rooms following a USD $15 million room restoration program in the hotel’s Heliopolis wing. Designed by London based interior designers Hirsch Bedner and Partners (HBA), the rooms provide luxurious accommodation for business and leisure travelers. New features include pillow top beds, flexible bedside reading lights, blackout curtains and sound reduction measures to make for a peaceful experience. Additionally, the facilities include state-of the-art business and entertainment connectivity through the installation of a Media Panel, linking the working environment at the business desk to the new flat screen 42″ television, thus allowing guests to connect iPods, MP3 players and their own laptops to the TV.
