Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Al Sahafa

Carlson Rezidor signs new Radisson Blu in Riyadh

BRUSSELS, July 13, 2017

The Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies in the world, has announced the signing of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Al Sahafa in Saudi Arabia.

This takes the group’s portfolio in Saudi Arabia to 36 hotels in operation and under development, with six hotels in Riyadh alone. Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh Al Sahafa will open in Q1 2019.

The hotel’s location in the North Business District of Riyadh offers first class accessibility to King Khalid International Airport and is at the intersection of major highways, Olaya Street and King Fahd Road. The hotel is located close to Riyadh’s new King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD), which is also scheduled to open later this year to become one of the region’s major financial hubs.

Elie Younes, executive vice president and chief development officer of Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said: “We are pleased to continue boosting our presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and we appreciate and thank our respected partner, Mr  Abdulaziz Bin Abdullah Bin Sulaiman Bin Akrash for the commitment and contributions they make towards the Saudi 2030 vision in promoting tourism.
“We are confident that the business fundamentals, and the major infrastructure projects being developed in line with the Kingdom’s future vision, will help accelerate further economic growth for the country and create more opportunities for Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group to make several valuable contributions to the economy and communities where we operate,” added Younes.

The hotel will have 163 rooms and suites, a restaurant and an executive lounge. The meeting and events space of more than 900 sq m includes a ballroom. The leisure facilities will include a gym and male and female spas.  

The Carlson Rezidor Group’s next hotel to open in Riyadh, later this year, is Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence, Riyadh Diplomatic Quarter. The group’s impressive pipeline in Saudi Arabia means it remains firmly on track to achieve its target to operate 100+ hotels across the Middle East by 2020, it said.
