One of the cool developments Marriott International has been making over the years is their partnership with TED Talks to weave speaker program into their slew of new properties. Of all the new re-branded Marriott hotels, I think the acquisition of The Mena House Cairo, Egypt stands pretty high up there ... I mean, LOOK AT THIS VIEW!!! I still can't believe the Egyptian government let a property be build thiiiiiiiiiiiis close to the Pyramids of Giza, a Seven Wonders of the World.

The Mena House Cairo still comprises 331 luxury rooms and suites under the Marriott brand, and many rooms boast these incomparable views of the Pyramids. Simply breath-taking! I know the property has a bunch of other amenities, which I can't wait to review for y'all, but if you want to join in on the TED Talks, it's this November 4-8, 2018. TED fellows Sarah Parcak & Meklit Haderoo for a conversation focused on innovation in design and architecture. Should be a fascinating conversation, especially on the grounds of this former palace.
