A Grand Hotels Celebration

The AUC Press chose to celebrate the publication of Andrew Humphreys’s beautifully illustrated book Grand Hotels of Egypt in the Golden Age of Travel earlier this month at Cairo’s downtown Windsor Hotel.

The event, held in the Barrel Lounge of this historic hotel, with its former bar-restaurant Parisiana Café once one of Cairo’s most popular night spots, was attended by some four hundred guests, including ambassadors, journalists, authors, and AUC Press friends.

Some guests and AUC Press staff opted for the 1940s look, including famous Egyptian actress Libliba.

In Grand Hotels of Egypt, the author writes of the Windsor: “The history of the hotel remains present in every piece of furniture and every fitting.”
