InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has signed a management agreement with Saleh Alsalamah and Partner Companies for Holiday Inn Jeddah Corniche.
Having signed for Holiday Inn Riyadh Al Malaz last year with the same partner, this latest development is part of IHG’s dedicated efforts to increase its midscale portfolio in the region.
Once completed, Holiday Inn Jeddah Corniche will be IHG’s third Holiday Inn hotel in Jeddah, joining Holiday Inn Jeddah Gateway and Holiday Inn Jeddah – Al Salam. Expected to open in January 2022, the 156-room property will be strategically located behind the corniche road, near Jeddah Waterfront, InterContinental Jeddah and Crowne Plaza Jeddah.
The hotel is also in close proximity to one of the city’s must-see attractions, Jeddah Corniche, offering long stretches of sandy beaches, a winding pier and lush parklands, making it the ideal destination for business and leisure travellers alike.
Holiday Inn Jeddah Corniche will feature excellent facilities, including a business centre, two meeting rooms, as well as a state-of-the-art gymnasium, spa and pool for guests to relax and rejuvenate. Furthermore, guests will have three dining options offering an excellent selection of food and beverages.
“Given the continued progress on Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 projects, we expect a continued need for midscale hotel accommodation in key cities such as Jeddah and Riyadh,” vice president – Middle East and Africa, IHG, Matthew Tripolone remarked. “We believe that upon opening in 2022, Holiday Inn Jeddah Corniche will be well suited to the diverse guest profile visiting the country; the perfect choice for corporate and leisure travellers.”
IHG currently operates 95 hotels across seven brands in the Middle East, including InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites, voco and Six Senses with a further 42 in the development pipeline due to open within the next three to five years.
