This new Riyadh hotel encompasses Holiday Inn’s new Open Lobby concept combining all public spaces and featuring elevated food and drink options and modernised design.

A new hospitality offering

The opening of Saudi Arabia’s Holiday Inn Riyadh The Business District marked the arrival of Holiday Inn’s Open Lobby concept in the Middle East. This open-plan area incorporates spaces to lounge, dine and work.

Nael Tamim, General Manager of Holiday Inn Riyadh The Business District, said: “Reliably familiar, yet refreshingly different, this brand-new Holiday Inn Riyadh the Business District has everything guests need whether they are travelling for business or leisure.”

“With a contemporary look and feel the hotel has been designed to meet the needs of all travellers, including families. Our Open Lobby gives our guests and visitors a warm and welcoming place to relax, work or socialise, the ideal location to enjoy dinner or drinks with colleagues, friends and family.”

Designed for the modern traveller

This hotel’s Open Lobby brings public spaces including a reception area and restaurant and bar into one lively and cohesive area. The open space is designed to make guests feel at home, whether they’re using it to work, relax or socialise.

This design approach fosters a communal spirit, encouraging connections between friends, family and fellow guests, while also accommodating the needs of the modern traveller looking for functionality and flexibility.

At this 138-key property, guests can make use of the media lounge, dine at Casa Oliva restaurant and stop by L’Espresso Bar while staying in contemporary guest rooms and suites, which are also joined by two swimming pools, meeting space and a well-equipped gym. Guests also benefit from 24-hour concierge service.

Located at the heart of the Business District, the hotel is within 10 minutes of King Khalid International Airport.
