The InterContinental Hotel Jeddah has completed the property’s room renovations.
Each of the hotel’s 350 rooms has undergone a radical facelift from floor to ceiling. Retaining the InterContinental Jeddah’s reputation as one of the Kingdom’s premiere hotels, it wears a contemporary design combined with luxurious modern, dark wood furniture, lightly coloured fabric. On the other hand, the latest in-room technology allows for a comfortable yet contemporary stay for guests, satisfying both the needs of business and leisure travellers.
The most important innovation, and definitely a “first” in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is the unlimited, state-of-the-art high speed internet connection available on a complimentary basis in all-deluxe, premium and Club InterContinental rooms and suites.
Another new feature is the interactive ‘Guest link’ television, which is now available in every room as well as an additional ‘Plug and Play’ device providing guests with an easy connection solution to directly access the internet.
“Offering high speed internet connection to all guests on a complimentary basis has given us a serious competitive edge,” declared Erik Weinmann, InterContinental Jeddah’s director of sales and marketing. Additionally, the InterContinental Jeddah is featuring wireless internet connection in the hotel lobby and in most meeting rooms.
The hotel also took the opportunity to refurbish the ‘Club InterContinental’ service. “A lot of new privileges have been added to our Club InterContinental including complimentary limousine airport pick-up, personalised instant check-in and complimentary beverages from the mini bar,” explained Weinmann.
Another popular addition to the Club InterContinental is the daily “Good Night Service” available every evening between 8.30pm and 9.30pm, whereby all Club InterContinental guests are wished a good night with a choice of Arabic coffee or creamy home-made hot chocolate at the door of their room.
