IHG Hotels and Resorts has opened its second Staybridge Suites in Saudi Arabia.
Located in the city of Al Khobar on Olaya Street, it is the only IHG hotel to offer long-term accommodation. It provides easy access to the city’s landmarks as well as key shopping centres including Al Rashid Mall and Dhahran Mall.
The hotel has a choice of three suites – 68 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom – all of which are equipped with fully-fitted kitchenettes, and feature a living space, a workplace, free high-speed wifi, and storage spaces.
Guests at Staybridge Suites Al Khobar City are welcomed with snacks, drinks, and personal care items from The Pantry, which is open 24×7.
There is a complimentary breakfast for all guests too, while the on-site restaurant, The Social, serves international cuisines.
Mark A. Allaf, regional general manager of IHG Hotels & Resorts, said, “Al Khobar is one of the main markets of IHG Hotels and Resorts, and Saudi Arabia is of strategic importance to our growth in the region.”
The hotel is close to Al Khobar’s corporate district, which is five minutes away, and Saudi Aramco is located 15 minutes from the hotel. Moreover, its proximity to King Abdulaziz Air Base also makes it convenient for Aramco visitors and armed forces officials.
Meanwhile, on Monday, Saudi Arabia said that it had decided to lift all Covid-19 precautionary measures in the kingdom. People are no longer required to wear masks in closed places. Proof of immunisation and health verification via the Tawakkalna app is also no longer required to enter facilities, events, and to board planes and public transportation.
