First franchised Holiday Inn
The Holiday Inn Riyadh, Al Qasr, which officially opened in December last year, belongs to the Al Hokair Group, Hotels Division, and is the first franchised Holiday Inn in the Middle East according to Patrick Mouchbahani, director of operations, marketing.
The hotel is located in the Olaya business district which is within walking distance from shopping malls, the King Fahd Library and major international corporations.
Being in Riyadh, the hotel caters to predominantly for the business traveler and families on weekends. The hotel has rapidly become a preferred destination for business people traveling to Riyadh thanks to its convenient location between the King Fahd Road and the Olaya Road.
“Indeed the hotel has had a great start and is now being recognised as one of the best hotels of the capital, Riyadh,” said Mouchbahani.
Meeting facilities are equipped with state of the art technology to give the business traveller all the tools necessary for a successful and hassle free presentation, and includes Internet connection. A new 600 person ballroom/conference hall catering for about 600 people is now being added to the hotel, and will give us even more opportunities to offer business solutions to a large number of attendees. The hotel features wi-fi Internet in the public areas, Internet connection in all the rooms and suites, an executive lounge offering complimentary breakfast, a happy hour, and complimentary coffee and tea at all times.
