Amenities at the Makkah Marriott Hotel include: a business center with secretarial service, and five medium-sized meeting rooms with a pre-function area.

The reimagined Greatroom is part of Marriott Hotels’ brand initiative to transform lobbies from a formal living room into a local destination. With the Marriott Mobile App, guests can also check-in before their arrival and will receive an automatic notification when their room is ready.

Marriott International began its first operations in the Middle East region with the opening of the 411-room Riyadh Marriott Hotel in Saudi Arabia in 1980. It has 19 new Saudi Arabia properties in the project pipeline.
