Radisson Hotel Group has opened its eighth hotel in Riyadh
Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Convention & Exhibition Center is ideally suited to business travellers.
Radisson Hotel Group is no stranger to the Saudi market. The hospitality giant operates 27 properties across the kingdom, one of which has just debuted in the capital. Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Convention & Exhibition Center is the group’s eighth hotel in Riyadh, and located within walking distance of both the city centre and Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center.
As a result, both business and leisure travellers are likely to find what they’re looking for — a sophisticated atmosphere and a base from which to conduct business and enjoy relaxation included. Additional destination highlights include vast shopping malls, impressive skyscrapers, and cultural offerings, including the King Abdulaziz Historical Center, the National Museum, and the National Library.
Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Convention & Exhibition Center houses 223 rooms, all of which have been stylishly designed with spectacular views of Riyadh. The heart of the hotel is the double-volume lobby that welcomes guests as a tranquil oasis, a welcome change of pace from the city’s dynamic way of life. The hotel’s design elements, ranging from the striking entrance to the tasteful guestrooms, deliver a feeling of modern luxury. Guests staying in the Executive Rooms and Suites have complimentary access to the Business Lounge, which offers tea, coffee and snacks throughout the day.
Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Convention & Exhibition Center features two food and beverage venues. Al Diriyah Restaurant and Lounge serves an international menu with some local touches and serves a variety of coffees from a local roastery by the name of Camel Step. Elsewhere, The Terrace restaurant is the perfect spot for those looking to enjoy a night out with gourmet and barbecued comfort food served tapas-style while watching sports games from around the world on the big screen. Nine meeting and events spaces, including the 400-square-metre Najd Event Hall (which can be divided into three separate sections and six smaller meeting rooms for more intimate gatherings) also reside at the new property. The Garden, meanwhile, is perfect for social events.
Tim Cordon, COO, Middle East, and Africa at Radisson Hotel Group, says, “We’re thrilled to cement our presence in the region further with the opening of Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Convention & Exhibition Center. We believe that business and leisure travellers from around the world will find the offerings of this luxurious and modern hotel perfectly suited to their needs.” Aldert van Zyl, General Manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Convention & Exhibition Center adds: “I am delighted to lead the dedicated team of this new hotel. We are proud of our dynamic and multi-cultural team that welcomes all guests with true Saudi Arabian hospitality as we build genuine relationships with our guests and create memorable moments.”
