Radisson Hotel Group's 43rd hotel in Saudi Arabia promises to offer 'affordable accommodation' to pilgrims in the Holy City
Radisson Hotel Group’s hotel brand Park Inn by Radisson has expanded its footprint in Saudi Arabia with a second hotel opening in the Holy City of Makkah, with the Park Inn by Radisson Makkah Aziziyah – located 6km from Al Masjid Al Haram, and close to Arafat, Mina, Muzdalifah, Jabal Thawr, and Jabal Nur – to comprise 355 rooms and Al Sharq Restaurant, offering “affordable accommodation” to pilgrims.
Radisson has 43 hotels with 9,400 rooms in operation or under development in Saudi Arabia.
Commenting on the hotel's launch, Radisson Hotel Group’s area senior vice president for the Middle East and Africa, Tim Cordon, said the kingdom’s drive towards economic diversification had made Saudi Arabia a key market for hospitality chains.
He continued: “The growth of religious tourism to the kingdom and the Holy City of Makkah for local and international travellers continues to increase year on year, and we are well placed to provide all the essentials.”
