Hyatt to develop two new Saudi Arabia hotels

An affiliate with the Hyatt Hotels Corporation entered into an agreement with Abdulelah Mohammed Ali Maghrabi Commercial for a Hyatt Place hotel and a Hyatt House hotel in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The hotels will be within one mile of each other and will be designed by Dubai-based Samuel Creations. Hyatt Place Jeddah/Medina Road and Hyatt House Jeddah/Sari Street will join the Park Hyatt Jeddah Marina, Club and Spa and the recently opened Hyatt Place Dubai/Al Rigga.

Due to open in the second quarter of 2017, Hyatt Place Jeddah/Medina Road will be located on Medina Road, one of Jeddah’s main arteries, with connections to Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport and the historic downtown. Hyatt Place Jeddah/Medina Road will offer 182 guestrooms, in addition to a number of food and beverage options, including complimentary hot breakfast for guests, the 24/7 Gallery Menu serving made-to-order entrees and appetizers around the clock and a full service restaurant. The hotel will also offer more than 2,400 square feet of meeting and event space.

Hyatt Place Jeddah/Medina Road is one of a number of Hyatt Place hotels under development in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), including Hyatt Place Dubai/Baniyas Square, which is expected to open in August 2015.
