With initial room rates starting from SR 550, the hotel expects to cover all markets with appeal to business travelers for group business as well as families traveling to Dammam for shopping or short city breaks. The new hotel has unique offerings such as Meeting@Novotel – tailored to make every event a success and Family&Novotel - tailored offers to make every family stay warmly remembered.

H.E. Sami bin Abdul Mohsen Alhokair, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and the Executive Vice Chairman of Al Hokair Group for Tourism and Development, owner of Novotel Dammam Business Park said: “The opening of our new property, Novotel Dammam Business Park, is an important milestone for us.  It signals our initial partnership with Accor, one of the world’s most respected hotel operators. We trust in their extensive experience in managing world-class hotels and we believe that this new hotel will perform successfully. It represents an exciting opportunity for Al Hokair Group to introduce its distinctive portfolio of world-class hotels.”

The hotel has a total of 159 rooms of which 22 are suites, 29 are superior rooms, 108 are standard rooms including two special needs rooms across six floors. Many of the rooms are interconnected and suitable for families with young children. All rooms feature IDD telephones, satellite flat screen TV, high speed Internet and WiFi connections, as well as 24-hour laundry service and an all day snack service.

A variety of dining options includes “The Square”, an all-day dining restaurant which offers an international buffet service with Arabic, Mediterranean,and Oriental flavours. The 24-hour Lobby Coffee Lounge for a relaxing tea or coffee with friends in a vibrant yet cozy ambience or as a convenient chill-out venue to meet up with friends after-work hours, completes the selection.
