The new hotel boasts of guest rooms that are spread over six floors, ranging from Standard to Suite, making the hotel an attractive proposition for both the leisurely and corporate, said a statement from Rotana.
The latest technology, six conference rooms and business amenities are ideal for the seasoned professional; the podium pool, sundeck and leisure facilities also make it a great place for families, it added.
