First DoubleTree by Hilton branded hotel opens in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Hilton Worldwide and DoubleTree by Hilton opened the DoubleTree by Hilton Dhahran at the commercial heartland of Al Khobar in Eastern Province, KSA. The 153-room conversion property is the first DoubleTree by Hilton branded hotel to open in Saudi Arabia.

Dhahran is one of the older Saudi port cities on the coast of the Arabian Gulf and is home to most of Saudi Arabia's oil reserves. Situated in the heart of the business and commercial district close to Al Khobar Corniche, shopping malls and a new petrol museum, the hotel is located for business as well as leisure travelers with a wide array of leisure activities, including water sports available nearby at Half Moon Bay.

The hotel has a selection of rooms and suites, including 99 king, queen or twin rooms; and a selection of 54 one- and two-bedroom suites.

DoubleTree by Hilton Dhahran features a range of amenities designed for both the business and leisure guest, including a ballroom, four flexible meeting rooms, a complimentary 24-hour business center, and a complimentary 24-hour fitness center.

Scheduled to open later this year is a fully renovated fitness center, featuring an indoor swimming pool and spa area, including steam room and sauna.

Guests can choose to dine in one of the hotel's three restaurants: Al Waha, an all-day dining restaurant serving a selection of international cuisine; Rasoi, where they can sample an array of Indian specialties in a fine dining atmosphere; and the Al Maha Café, where they can enjoy a coffee break accompanied by pastries.
