Located in the heart of Saudi Arabia's petroleum city of Dhahran, the Dhahran International Hotel offers an ideal place to stay for business travellers to the region.
The hotel which carved for itself a place in history for hosting the international press corp that descended on Dhahran during the Gulf War, is the nearest deluxe property to Saudi petroleum giant Aramco.
It is therefore ideally located to capitalise on this proximity by becoming the preferred place to stay for petroleum company executives visiting Aramco for business. The hotel recorded a 78 per cent occupancy level last year reflecting its position.
The 191-room hotel offers a comprehensive range of business and leisure facilities including a business centre, internet café, an airline check-in counter, travel agency, car hire and a shopping arcade.
For recreation, the hotel provides a well-equipped health club with Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, jogging track, two tennis courts, swimming pool and min-golf.
Dhahran International was the first hotel to open "a meet and assist desk" in the arrivals terminal after the regional airport moved to Dammam and provide free shuttle bus services to its clients.
The hotel's website, www.dhahotel.com.sa, allows potential visitors to make online bookings.
