Holiday Inn Riyadh

Holiday Inn Riyadh
The capital of Saudi Arabia and one of the Middle Easts largest cities, Riyadh is a centre of business, administration and finance and a conference hub for the MEA, with more meetings facilities than any other city in Saudi Arabia.

We at Holiday Inn Riyadh have superbly equipped conference facilities in three fully serviced hotels, located in Riyadhs central business, finance and administration districts. Conveniently located for the International Exhibition Centre and King Khaled International airport, our venues seat up to 1300 delegates in air-conditioned comfort.

The benefits of Holiday Inn Riyadh

All three of our Holiday Inn venues – Holiday Inn Riyadh-Al Qasr, Holiday Inn Riyadh-Olaya and Holiday Inn Riyadh Minhal are located in or near Riyadhs Central Business District of Riyadh-Olaya. Dominated by the glittering towers of King Fahd road, this is Saudi Arabias most prosperous thoroughfare, lined with designer shopping malls and multinational companies. King Khaled International Airport is just 30 minute to the north.

Our Holiday Inn Riyadh Minhal hotel is particularly well sited for Riyadhs hospitals and government buildings. Able to hold up to 350 delegates, our largest room can sub-divide for smaller meetings. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh pride ourselves on our flexibility and range of meeting rooms, which can accommodate groups of all sizes in a variety of formal and informal layouts.

Riyadh a sparkling green oasis of opportunity

Despite its modern skyline, Riyadh dates back 1500 years. A prized desert oasis, until the arrival of the oil fields it was mainly a centre for agriculture. Today, green fields are dominant once more, with the Saudi government ploughing resources into farming and sustainable energy. A number of agricultural and environmental events are held in Riyadh each year.

The Saudi government prizes private enterprise highly. Privatisation and investment have created a city where small businesses, as well as large conglomerates, are able to thrive. We at Holiday Inn are able to answer the needs of both groups. Our newly-refurbished Holiday Inn Riyadh-Al Qasr can accommodate up to 1300 delegates, and up to 450 at the luxurious Holiday Inn Riyadh-Olaya nearby. Both offer superb accommodation for both business and leisure guests, being central to the malls and other attractions of King Fahd Road.

Holiday Inn Riyadh for business, for pleasure, for both

King Fahd Road is an excellent base for exploration. Dominated by the Kingdom Centre, other stunning examples of Saudi architecture include the artistically-styled Al Faisaliyah Centre, Saudis first skyscraper, and the Riyadh TV Tower. King Fahd is considered one of the most beautiful modern thoroughfares in the world.

However, theres a cultural side to Riyadh as well. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh are equally well placed for exploration of the mediaeval city ruins of Diriyah, just a few kilometres from the city centre and one of the most important archaeological sites in the Middle East. The Al-Dira Old Town district has been built on the site of the original Riyadh, in a style sympathetic to traditional Nejd architecture. The al-Masmak Fort and King Abdulaziz Historical Centre are equally worthy of a visit, and there are a number of traditional Nejd villages in the region which make a pleasant afternoons drive.

Whether you are here for business or pleasure, we at Holiday Inn Riyadh will ensure your stay is perfect.

Holiday Inn Riyadh

The capital of Saudi Arabia and its largest and most prosperous city, Riyadh is dominated by the skyline of its Central Business District. The sweeping tower of the Kingdom Centre, and stunning Art Deco detailing of the Al Faisaliyah Centre, mark Riyadh as a bustling modern hub of commerce and finance. But it is built on the foundations of a walled city that was founded 1,500 years ago. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh have three superbly appointed hotels, close to both Riyadh’s central business district and its cultural attractions.

Riyadh has doubled in size in the last 15 years and continues to expand. With a diverse economy and growing tourism industry, our Holiday Inn Riyadh hotels play an important role in the economy. Riyadh’s enviable highway system and easy access to King Khalid International Airport make it a magnet for corporate investment. A fertile city built on a desert oasis, it grew rich on its date palms and orchards. With decreasing reliance on its fossil fuel economy, the city is once more investing in agriculture, which dominates the conference calendar.

Find the Holiday Inn in Riyadh that’s right for you

We at Holiday Inn Riyadh have three hotels in prime locations. Our Holiday Inn Riyadh-Olaya is located in Riyadh’s commercial and business hub. Local to the shopping malls and Riyadh Exhibition Centre, it is ideal for international business conferences, whether held in our hotel or elsewhere in the city. The fully serviced conference rooms will seat up to 450 delegates, besides which we have a staffed business centre; spacious bedrooms; private business suites, and first-class recreational and dining facilities.

Our Holiday Inn Riyadh-Al Qasr venue was completely modernised in 2007, and offers outstandingly luxurious business accommodation at the heart of the Olaya Central Business District, adjoining the prestigious King Fahd road and with direct links to King Khaled International Airport. Our largest conference venue, it will accommodate up to 1,300 delegates. The state-of-the-art meeting rooms, stunning décor and gourmet dining facilities are matched by a level of service that ensures you will want for nothing during your stay.

Our Holiday Inn Riyadh Minhal hotel is in a prime location for those involved with medical or public administration, being close to the city hospitals, and government buildings. It is the ideal venue for break-out and training sessions, as the largest room, which accommodates up to 350 guests, can be broken down into three smaller ones.

Holiday Inn Riyadh – where tradition meets ambition

The modern Riyadh, while rich in stunning modern architecture, was built by razing the original ancient walls and fortresses to the ground. However, the city is working hard to promote its heritage, and though nothing can stop the urban sprawl reaching the surrounding towns, they are being protected. Traditional villages like Diriyah, Manfuha and Wadi Laban are enjoying a new-found interest in cultural investment, their red-brick architecture helping to promote the cultural side of Riyadh through tourism.

Riyadh is a popular city to hold conferences and business meetings, with a friendly persona and excellent conference facilities. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh offer an extensive range of facilities. Whether it’s an international product launch or team building events in the desert, our friendly staff will help you every step of the way to ensure your event is a success.

Holiday Inn Riyadh

Located in the Nejd region of the Arabian Peninsula, Riyadh is the capital of Saudi Arabia and its largest city. A centre of power, finance and commerce, meetings play an increasingly important role in the economy. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh have no fewer than three hotels here, located in Riyadh’s prime cultural and business areas. With state-of-the-art conference rooms suitable for private functions as well as corporate meetings, we are equally suited for both business and leisure visitors.

Built on a desert oasis around 1500 years ago, Riyadh began life as a small walled city. A lush and fertile region which was for many centuries an important centre of agriculture, it became famous for its orchards and date palms. The arrival of oil brought new riches, with the Saudi government encouraging economic growth by, for example, the privatisation of key utilities such as electricity and telecommunications. Although fossil fuels no longer dominate the economy as they once did, private enterprise continues to dominate Riyadh’s economy, with corporate meetings taking place on a daily basis.

Riyadh’s business and financial district of Olaya houses a large number of big conglomerates and private companies, as well as the HQ of the National Bank. We at Holiday Inn Riyadh have a prestigious hotel right in the centre of this important district: Holiday Inn Riyadh-Al Qasr. Totally renovated in 2007, our luxurious premises occupy a prime position adjoining King Fahd road, the wealthiest area of the city. A glittering thoroughfare of high-rise office buildings, conglomerate headquarters and shopping malls, King Fahd road links directly to King Khaled International Airport. With state-of-the-art conference facilities for up to 1300 delegates, we at Holiday Inn Riyadh-Al Qasr are ideally situated for international conferences and meetings.

Close by is our Holiday Inn Riyadh-Olaya hotel, again conveniently near to the commercial, business and retail centre and just 30 minutes drive from the airport. Those attending trade fairs and conventions at the Exhibition Centre will find it conveniently near, while the government ministry buildings are also close by. As well as conference rooms housing up to 450 delegates, our Holiday Inn Riyadh-Olaya has a staffed business centre. Our executive suites are ideal for breakout sessions and private discussions away from the main meeting rooms.

Sometimes, corporate meetings require smaller, more intimate facilities – a role which our Holiday Inn Riyadh Minhal hotel fulfils admirably. Convenient for the government embassies, Exhibition Centre and main business district, it is also ideally located for meetings concerning health and medicine – Riyadh’s Military Hospital and King Faisal Specialist Hospital are both close by. Our main meeting room will accommodate up to 350 delegates, with the advantage of being separable into three smaller rooms.

Despite its ancestry, Riyadh’s architecture is largely modern, dominated by the Kingdom Centre, the tallest building in Saudi Arabia. However, there are surprising snippets of the past – such as the 19th century Masmak fort, and the mud-brick buildings of Al-Dira. Located on the site of the ancient walled city, this district has been sympathetically rebuilt to reflect the pre-20th century architecture of the Nejd region.

We at Holiday Inn Riyadh are within easy reach of these cultural gems – the perfect excuse to break up meetings with a bit of sightseeing.
