Al Faisaliah wins business hotel award
Riyadh, May 12, 2009
Al Faisaliah Hotel, a Rosewood Hotel, was recently named Saudi Arabia’s leading business hotel at the World Travel Awards.
The award ceremony was hosted at The Monarch Dubai, among the region’s leading travel industry professionals.
Eight nominees were shortlisted in the category of Saudi Arabia’s leading business hotel and more than 170,000 travel professionals around the world cast votes to crown the title upon Al Faisaliah Hotel.
The win further endorses the hotel’s reputation as the best choice for high-profile executive guests and corporate groups who require top business amenities to work out of the office.
“Our corporate executive market remains buoyant and loyal; we pride ourselves in delivering flawless personalised services to business travellers around the world when they come to Riyadh,” said Costas S Gavriel, director of sales and marketing for Al Faisaliah Hotel.
“That these awards are voted for by our travel industry colleagues who understand the true nature of the hospitality sector makes it even more rewarding,” he added.
The award adds to the string of wins that Rosewood Hotels & Resorts have collected over the years at the World Travel Awards.
Al Faisaliah Hotel was named Saudi Arabia’s leading business hotel in 2008 and previously held Saudi Arabia’s leading hotel for four consecutive years, this year passing on the title to sister property Rosewood Corniche in Jeddah.
Al Faisaliah Hotel is also into a multi-million-dollar expansion scheduled to open in the middle of 2010, which includes a new wing of 106 ultra luxury rooms and suites, a brand new Mediterranean dining restaurant, and a ladies-only spa with more than 12 treatment rooms.
Al Faisaliah Hotel forms a towering attraction amid the exclusive shops, residences and businesses of Riyadh’s Al Faisaliah centre. It has scooped a clutch of other prizes in recent years, and is particularly renowned for its spectacular dome restaurant, The Globe, which provides dramatic views across Riyadh. – TradeArabia News Service
