Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced the opening of Hyatt Place Riyadh Al Sulaimania, thereby introducing the Hyatt Place brand’s first property in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Strategically located in the upscale metropolitan neighbourhood of Riyadh, this Hyatt hotel is in close proximity to the commercial and tourist spots such as Thalya Street and Olaya business district.

Hyatt Place Riyadh Al Sulaimania features 88 spacious accommodations that include ten suites. The F&B offerings include Gallery Café serving a fine selection of soups, sandwiches, flatbreads and quick bites; and Coffee To Beverages Bar for specialty coffee and tea options.

Guests can enjoy recreational facilities like 24-hour fitness centre, outdoor and rooftop swimming pool.

The hotel also offers 242 sqm event space that is spread across three meeting rooms and pre-function area.

Adnan Haider, General Manager, “We are excited to introduce our select services portfolio to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with the opening of the first Hyatt Place hotel. This hotel strengthens Hyatt’s position in the region as a brand leader and showcases a different type of guest and hotel experience, one centred around casual hospitality and purposeful service in a smartly-designed environment. We are confident that both business and leisure travellers will enjoy the modern design, easy accessibility and pioneering service concepts offered at Hyatt Place Riyadh Al Sulaimania.”

The launch of this new Hyatt property adds to Saudi Arabia’s booming hospitality sector — Over the past few years, Saudi regions, especially Riyadh and Jeddah have experienced a significant increase in new hotel openings and occupancy, owing to the growing MICE sector in the region.
