Copthorne Hotel Riyadh in Saudi Arabia has officially opened its doors to guests.
Situated on King Fahd Road, the 4-star hotel is located close to major government offices and to the city’s business district. The first Copthorne hotel to open in Saudi Arabia, the opening signals the start of significant growth for the brand across the Middle East.
The newly opened hotel features 143 rooms and suites each with stylish design and facilities including eight meeting rooms, an outdoor swimming pool and a fitness centre. The hotel is approximately 30 mins drive from King Khalid International Airport.
Francois Kassab, chief operating officer, Millennium and Copthorne MEA said: “We are excited to open our first hotel in the commercial hub and capital Riyadh. It is our fourth opening in Saudi Arabia and is just the beginning of an extensive expansion across the Kingdom. We successfully launched Millennium Hotel Hail last month and are pleased to be forging ahead with rapid expansion in Saudi Arabia.
“We are confident that the Copthorne Hotel Riyadh will be a great addition to the capital’s hospitality offering, addressing the undersupply of midscale hotels and providing a practical alternative for business travellers. We anticipate a strong demand from the corporate segment due to its excellent location and the hotel’s facilities”
The opening of Copthorne Hotel Riyadh closely follows the launch of Millennium Hotel Hail in the north-west of the country and is part of the Group’s wider strategic plan to expand to open over 20 hotels across the Kingdom within the next five years, reinforcing its position as the fastest growing hotel operator in Saudi Arabia.
