Saudi Arabia for Holiday Inn

HOLIDAY INN has announced the venue for its first three Express hotels in Saudi Arabia.  Nine more Holiday Inn Express properties are to be developed over the next five years in the Kingdom.  The property at Madinah Road, Jeddah, will offer 252 rooms, King Abdullah Economic City will feature 183 rooms, and there will be 140 rooms at Knowledge Economic City, Madinah.  John Bamsey, Chief Operating Officer, IHG Middle East and Africa, said: "This is the first limited service hotel brand to enter Saudi Arabia.  The Kingdom receives around 12m tourists a year.  The Gulf markets have been dominated by luxury, upscale hotel brands over the past 30 years but, as markets mature and develop, consumers seek out trusted brands." www.holidayinn.com
