I stayed at the Cario Marriott in Zamalek (which is a large island in the middle of the Nile in the middle of Cairo) for just one night, but I am a frequent visitor there since I live in Cairo.

I just returned from Cairo, having stayed there for four nights. Most people are currently afraid of Cairo, and I saw the situation as an opportunity to explore the area while it wasn't buried neck deep with tourist, and it was a wise decision. The hotel has some pretty serious security in place, it's almost like entering a military base...
