InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) opened the Holiday Inn Riyadh Meydan in downtown Riyadh.

The eight story hotel is located close to the business district, Olaya, within reach of the Al Faisaliyah and Kingdom Tower and linked to the city and King Khalid International Airport by major roads.

Holiday Inn Riyadh Meydan has 290 rooms, including 46 suites with Jacuzzi bathtubs in the en-suite bathrooms.

The hotel offers guests a choice of several dining outlets, including the all-day dining restaurant, Oasis. Located in the hotel’s atrium, the restaurant offers a variety of cuisines in a modern setting. Guests also have the option of the Tea Garden which provides continental and oriental cuisine in a relaxing backdrop.

A modern gymnasium with sauna and spa facilities are on offer, as well as a kids’ area so parents can relax as their children are entertained.

Catering for the business traveller and conferences and events market, Holiday Inn Riyadh Meydan’s conference floor offers 16 meeting rooms to accommodate a variety of requirements: from boardrooms for 10 people, to larger venues that can host conferences of up to 120 people.

Holiday Inn, which turned 60 last year, has a long history in the region, with the first Holiday Inn hotel opening in 1977 in Oman. Today, there are 3,445 properties in the Holiday Inn brand family globally, with another 694 due to open over the next five years.
