Hilton Garden Inn to open in Al Khobar
Dubai, October 10, 2013
Hilton Worldwide is set to debut its Hilton Garden Inn brand in Saudi Arabia, following the signing of a deal with local investor Ali Saad Bin Sultan & Brother Holding Group.
The agreement will see the opening of the 150-room Hilton Garden Inn Al Khobar in mid-2017.
The hotel will be located close to the city’s two largest shopping malls and will have easy access to King Fahd International Airport and to the King Fahd Causeway, a 26km road bridge connecting Saudi Arabia with Bahrain, said a statement.
Adrian Kurre, global head, Hilton Garden Inn, said: “We are pleased to add another impressive property to our hotel portfolio. Hilton Garden Inn has consistently set the guest standard in the mid-range sector and Saudi Arabia is proving particularly appreciative of our award winning combination of best-in-class customer service together with affordable comfort and convenience.”
The hotel will feature the pressure-reducing Garden Sleep System bed and an ergonomic Mirra chair by Herman Miller. It will also provide a range of amenities including a health club, an outdoor pool, a business centre, large multi-function room and meeting rooms.
Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Hilton Worldwide Middle East and Africa, said: “Al Khobar and the wider Dammam region in the Eastern Province is an exciting prospect for Hilton Worldwide. The region is enjoying rapid commercial and industrial expansion and if that trend is to continue then the demand for quality hotels will be key to the continued progress and prosperity of the city.” - TradeArabia News Service
