Booking meeting rooms at Holiday Inn Jeddah
Located in the centre of Jeddah’s downtown commercial district, close to Al-Balad Old Town and just 5 miles from the fabulous beaches of the Red Sea, we at Holiday Inn Jeddah are the ideal choice for those wanting meeting rooms in a pleasant, central location. Only 40 km from Jeddah international airport and 60 km from the Holy City of Makkah, we offer first-class facilities to business visitors from both Saudi Arabia and abroad.
Jeddah-Al Salam is the second largest city in Saudi Arabia, and the gateway to the holy Muslim cities of Mecca and Medina. When Saudi businesses look for meeting rooms, Jeddah’s Old City district, where we at Holiday Inn are located, is especially favourable. The beautiful old Medina Gate is sadly all that is left of the original 7th century city walls – but the internal areas remain. A tour of old Al-Balad’s crumbling coral stone buildings and traditional souks shows you the alternative side of modern Saudi Arabia; an ideal introduction for businesses wanting to invest here.
Jeddah is currently experiencing an economic boom, and is now considered to be the business capital of the Middle East, after Dubai. We at Holiday Inn Jeddah have the advantage of being close to both Al-Balad and Jeddah’s vibrant modern city centre. Conveniently located for the malls and designer outlets of Medina Road and Tahlia Street, we are also close to King Abdullah Street, the city’s central business district. This thoroughfare has a particular need for well equipped meeting rooms – Jeddah’s most important companies are located here, including some of Saudi Arabia’s biggest conglomerates. With a major new CBD planned, Jeddah looks set to overcome Dubai as the Middle East’s centre of commerce.
We at Holiday Inn Jeddah have two large ballrooms able to seat up to 1,600 delegates, as well as 4 smaller meeting rooms for 10 to 60 delegates. With a state-of-the-art Business Centre, high speed internet access, Executive Floors with luxurious Executive Club Suites, and bedrooms equipped with desk lamps and work stations, we offer all the business traveller could need.
We’re equally well equipped for leisure guests – Jeddah is one of the Middle East’s leading tourist destinations. Our air-conditioned rooms are complemented by our fitness centre, spa and gym – ideal for those times when you don’t want to head for the beach or tourist spots. Our rooms have cable and satellite TV, too, while the cuisine in our Al Rashan restaurant is a delight to the eye as well as the palate. Being a strictly Muslim city, alcohol is banned throughout Jeddah. However, our cocktail lounge offers a comfortable place to sit and work while enjoying a fruit juice or coffee.
Haggle at the souks of the Old Town, or shop for designer goods in Tahlia Street. Visit the flamboyant Corniche, with its theme parks and beaches, or take a drive out of town to the Red Sea beaches, coral reefs and diving centres. Whatever your reason for booking meeting rooms, Jeddah is the place to be.
