THE Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh, which opened in February 2003, has won a coveted position on the Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s Hot List.
The magazine – incognito – visits hundreds of noteworthy new hotels and resorts that have opened during the previous year to determine its top 100 hot list. It recognised the Riyadh property for its ‘unique confluence of design, service and style’. It described the hotel as ‘one of the most luxurious and impeccably managed hotels in the Middle East’. The staff were described as ‘paragons of cultural sensitivity’.
The 249 room hotel occupies 18 floors of the iconic Kingdom Centre Tower in downtown Riyadh and was the first GCC property for the Canadian-based group.
Said Bahram Sepahi, general manager, Four Seasons Riyadh. “This is a tremen-dous achievement for everyone on the team and reinforces the aspirations of Four Seasons worldwide – to be the best hotel wherever we operate.”
Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh provides a service which never sleeps. From its 24-hour Business Centre with administrative and translation services to 24-hour concierge, in-room dining, laundry and dry cleaning to one hour pressing and complimentary overnight shoe shine, the Hotel operates to ensure guests’ demands are addressed swiftly and efficiently.
As well as offering some of the finest and most technologically advanced MICE facilities in the Saudi Arabian capital, with flexibility of space capable of hosting groups from 10 to 5,000, the Hotel also boasts one of the finest wedding halls in the Middle East. Specifically designed with the bride’s every need in mind, the adjoining wedding suite is opulent and enjoys the privacy of its own entrance and a dedicated team.
The hotel’s suites and guest rooms, each with panoramic views over the city, are regal in proportion and have been designed with comfort and luxury in mind. Each room is equipped with two phone lines and high speed internet access while the suites also feature private fax machines and colour printers with scanners.
Diversity is the key to the dining experiences available at the Hotel – four stylish venues collectively offer a wide range of cuisines. And, to ensure the busy executive de-stresses during his stay, he can enjoy exclusive use of the hotel’s fitness centre and spa, the city’s largest.
