New Hilton Garden Inn Al Khobar Offers Increased Range of Hospitality Solutions to Business and Leisure Travellers in This All-Important Region
New opening in the business-centric Eastern Province comes as Saudi Arabia announces new tourist visa regulations from April 1
SAUDI ARABIA and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) award-winning midscale brand, today announced the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Al Khobar , the third Hilton Garden Inn property to arrive in Saudi Arabia.
Located in the popular district of Al Ulaya, the 203-guest room hotel is a short drive from global energy giant Saudi Aramco's Headquarters, Al Turki Business Park, Dhahran Techno Valley and is situated within walking distance to the Mall of Dharan - the largest in the Eastern Province, meaning the new hotel provides guests the ideal venue to combine both business and pleasure during their stay.
Thanks to the continued investment into the province's range of industries and its buoyant economy, as well as the introduction of tourist visas, effective from April 1, the new property will cater to the increased demand for hotel space expected from both commercial and leisure travellers to Saudi Arabia and reinforces Hilton's commitment to the Kingdom.
Strategically significant to Saudi Arabia's future economic growth, the Eastern Province is an important region and the new Hilton Garden Inn Al Khobar will provide the perfect hospitality solution to an array of local, regional and international visitors, with its variable guest rooms and the latest in meetings, incentives and conferences facilities.
Travelling to the hotel is extremely easy, being only 54 kilometres from King Fahd International Airport - one of the world's largest that serves more than 12 million passengers per year - and a mere 21 kilometres from the King Fahd Causeway that connects the province to the Kingdom of Bahrain.
"We are delighted to bring Hilton Garden Inn's signature services and amenities to Al Khobar, a business destination that continues to grow in importance and a key cornerstone of the Kingdom's economy which also boasts leisure attractions such as malls, seafronts and a corniche within easy reach," said Daniel Norman, general manager. "At Hilton Garden Inn Al Khobar, guests can unwind after a busy day working or shopping by taking advantage of the hotel's dining options, stunning rooftop pool and great location."
