The Jeddah property will be located on Quraysh Road in the Al Salamah district, 9km from King Abdulaziz International Airport. The hotel will include 142 rooms and serviced apartments, all-day dining restaurant, lobby cafe, more than 1,200sqm of meeting and event facilities, and spacious health facilities with gym and outdoor pool.
The Park Inn by Radisson Riyadh (artist impression pictured) will be located on Al Ahsa Street, in the heart of Riyadh’s established business district and 2.5km away from the existing Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh. Alongside 170 rooms will be an all-day dining restaurant, specialty restaurant, lobby lounge, meetings and events facilities spread over 500sqm as well as a fitness centre with outdoor pool.
The group already operates six hotels in KSA and has a further nine under development.
