Towering mark of luxury
Four Seasons has almost become a generic term for luxury in the higher echelons of top international hotels. Whether it is the Pierre in New York, George V in Paris, or the Kuda Huraa resort in the Maldives, all Four Seasons properties have one highest common factor, exemplary and unwavering levels of service.The arrival of a new Four Seasons property is always an international event, and Riyadh is no exception. The luxury Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh is in the heart of the glittering 300-metre high iconic tower of the monumental Kingdom Centre right in the heart of the Saudi capital. Over the past few years Riyadh has witnessed the emergence of this dramatic addition to its ever-changing cityscape at the same height as the Eiffel Tower and taller than London's Canary Wharf. From the moment one enters at ground level into Four Seasons' awe-inspiring exclusive 900 sq metre lobby, an integral part of the dramatic five-storey high main atrium of the tower, the magnitude and dramatic scale of the building is apparent. Guests are provided with an array of unparalleled luxury within these sleek and futuristic surroundings. Guests are whisked up to their rooms by high-speed elevators to accommodation located on ten floors between the 15th and 24th level. There are 249 rooms including 52 suites - Royal, Executive, and one-bedroomed, all generously sized containing the latest technology and provide commanding panoramic views across the city. The luxurious Royal Suites on floors 23 and 24 are, in effect, private residences providing seclusion and serenity and magnificent 180-degree panoramic views of the city. In terms of food and beverage the Seasons Restaurant provides a delightful Lebanese and Oriental buffet. For finer dining there is Quattro Restaurant offering Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. Four Seasons can cater for all functions with over 5,500 sq metres of meeting space available. This includes the spectacular Versailles Ballroom reminiscent of the grandeur and elaborate classical style of the famous French royal palace near Paris. The 4,100 column-free sq metre ballroom has a 10-metre high ceiling containing magnificent chandeliers and can accommodate wedding receptions and conferences with up to 1,200 seated guests as well as product launches and seminars.
