Booking meeting rooms in Najran with Holiday Inn

Booking meeting rooms in Najran with Holiday Inn

Ancient and fascinating, in an area of unique scenic beauty, the city of Najran is one of the jewels of Saudi Arabia. With compelling archaeological sites, modern scenic attractions, and a thriving business district company constantly in need of meeting rooms, Najran hotels have to cater for both business and leisure visitors – something we at Holiday Inn Najran are particularly well equipped to do.

Just 7 km from the modern city centre, yet close to cultural and scenic attractions like Al-Ukhdood, the Najran Dam and the Empty Quarter, we at Holiday Inn Najran are located less than 20 km from the International Airport, and have ample parking facilities. Our meeting rooms and banquet hall –free to delegates dining and staying at the hotel – house up to 670 delegates, with stylish accommodation that includes 12 suites and 5 luxurious villas; perfect for private get-togethers with colleagues. Our 4 superb restaurants offer a wide range of European and Arabic cuisines, while our gym, spa and outside pool are perfect for after-hours relaxation.

If you want an interesting, scenic location for your meeting rooms, Najran has it all. Located in a lush fertile valley, or wadi, below the Asir and Yemen highlands, Najran province has been a major agricultural area for 4000 years. The swathes of date palms and orange groves, rich in birdlife, abruptly end where the river meets the desert at Rub’ Al-Khali (the Empty Quarter) – a popular destination for jeep safaris.

The majority of the populace belong to the ancient Yam tribe, who work the 100 or so farms along the fertile wadi – or have jobs in the thriving modern city. Incorporating many of the original buildings of Abul Saud, the town it grew up around, Najran has one of the most attractive central business districts in Saudi Arabia. Traditional souks and mosques sit alongside sympathetically designed modern banks, shops, boutiques and offices, while palm-lined parks and avenues offer pleasant shade from the sun.

Whatever your reason may be for booking meeting rooms, Najran’s old city of Al-Ukhdood is definitely worth taking time out to investigate. The first Yemeni city to fall to Roman occupation, it was once an important centre for trading in spices, located on the main trading routes between the Mediterranean and South Arabia. It was originally surrounded by a massive circular wall; parts of this can still be seen even today, and its name translates as “The Ditch” or “The Groove”. A defensive moat can still be seen, and the site is still being excavated by archaeologists today. There are enigmatic pre-Islamic carvings among the ruins, which feature in a fascinating museum devoted to the site.

Najran Dam, one of the wonders of the modern world. 35 km from the city centre, it is crossed by a 4.5 metre wide road, with spectacular views of the Najran Valley. Arrange a corporate tour, and you can also see the fabulous Al-Aan Palace, beneath which are the strange, castle-like red brick houses unique to the Najran area.

Holiday Inn Hotels in Belgium and the Netherlands

Holiday Inn Hotels in Belgium and the Netherlands

A hub of industry, culture and commerce, with its finger on the pulse of European politics, some of the most important decisions affecting the European Union are made in Belgium and the Netherlands. Our Holiday Inn Hotels are sited at strategic locations throughout the area, providing accommodation for both business and leisure visitors.

There are Holiday Inn hotels to suit every budget and purpose. Now part of the Intercontinental Group, they range from scaled-down Holiday Inn Express hotels, to our prestigious Crowne Plaza hotels – upmarket venues specifically catering for the international meetings and conventions market.

Holiday Inn Hotels for every budget

Our Holiday Inn Express (also called Express by Holiday Inn) hotels are scaled-down, competitively priced venues ideal for the smaller business user. With this in mind, they are often located in smaller towns with a large local business population, such as Moerdijk and Hasselt.

The focus with Holiday Inn Express is on convenience and practicality. Catering specifically for short-term business and leisure travellers, meeting rooms hold from 10 to 60 delegates, depending on venue. Recreational facilities are limited, so you won’t find a pool, spa or – in most cases – a fitness centre. Express by Holiday Inn Hotels generally don’t have restaurants either, though all have bars, and are located in central areas with plenty of local amenities.

Naturally, we don’t skimp where it matters, despite our affordability. The business facilities are as impressive as our regular Holiday Inn Hotels, with well-equipped air-conditioned meeting rooms, Wi-Fi and even business centres.

Guest rooms are spacious, smart and well equipped – at Gent, we even have extra-long 2.20 metre beds! Although meetings at this venue are limited to 10 or less our Gent Meetings Centre, located next door, has modular meeting rooms seating up to 400 people. Like our larger hotels, there is the benefit of a Conference Host and Meetings Co-ordinators, who will be on hand from the moment you make your booking to the moment you leave. You will find our Express by Holiday Inn Hotels at Antwerp City North, Gent, Hasselt, Moerdijk and Mechelen City Centre.

From Brussels to Maastricht – Conference hotels where it matters

Our Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn hotels are located in key centres of finance, government and commerce throughout the EU. At Brussels, we have no fewer than seven large, well equipped conference venues, including two at Brussels Airport and one at the Brussels Expo.

Brussels is one of the convention capitals of the world, and an administrative centre of Europe since World War ll. The headquarters of the European Union, NATO, the Western European Union and many other international organisations, Brussels is also a popular tourist destination – our Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn hotels cater admirable for both business and leisure guests, whether it’s a short business meeting or a long-stay holiday.

Maastricht is best known for its historic Treaty – but in fact there’s history everywhere you look, in the towering fortresses, riverside gardens and winding mediaeval streets. Bruges, Leiden, Liege and Amsterdam are similarly well cultured, while at chic IJmuiden Seaport Beach our beach-front location includes conference facilities for up to 1000 delegates! We have Holiday Inn Hotels throughout Belgium and the Netherlands, mixing business with pleasure every step of the way.
