THE Rezidor Hotel Group has announced the opening of the 350-room Park Inn by Radisson Jeddah. The property is Rezidor’s 10th hotel in Saudi Arabia, bringing the group’s portfolio in the country to 2,400 rooms in operation and under development. The new hotel is scheduled to welcome the first guests in Q4 2014.
“Saudi Arabia is a key development market for Rezidor. The country experiences continuous economic growth amid regional turmoil and global economic tremors.
“Its strong domestic market, its important religious sites in addition to a strong real estate sector and a healthy hospitality market, call for a strong hotel presence”, said Kurt Ritter, president and CEO of Rezidor.
Elie Younes, vice president of business development for Mena at Rezidor added, ‘’We are committed to growth in Saudi Arabia and to further contribute to its tourism industry. We are thrilled to partner with Olayan, a group known for its great ability to plan and successfully execute projects and we are looking at working together across the Kingdom in the future’’.
The new Park Inn by Radisson will feature 250 rooms and 100 serviced apartments and will benefit from an excellent location on Al Madinah Road. It will have two restaurants and a lounge, 500 sq m of meeting space, a fitness centre with outdoor swimming pool and a business centre.
