First-ever Marriott Hotel in Makkah opens
Marriott International, Inc. has announced the opening of the Makkah Marriott Hotel, the company’s first flagship brand in the holy city.
The arabesque themed 426-room property sits on the hill top of Makkah, providing guests with exquisite views of the Holy City and Haram. With the opening of the company’s flagship Marriott Hotels brand in Makkah, Muslim pilgrims will now have a property that easily resonates with their needs of a futuristic, comfortable and convenient place to stay while undertaking one of the most important journeys in their lives.
The property boasts spacious rooms, with its regular rooms larger than other hotels in the Holy City. All are adequately furnished with modern conveniences and serviced by some of the most professionally-trained hotel staff anywhere in the world. From the hotel, guests can comfortably travel to Haram via a shuttle service that runs several times during the day.
The Makkah Marriott Hotel also lives up to the brand’s goal of reimagining the future of travel for the next generation of travelers, who blend work and play, demand style and substance, and require technology to stay connected. Signature features at the newly opened property include the Greatroom lobby and mobile check-in and check-out facility.
The reimagined Greatroom is part of Marriott Hotels brand initiative to transform lobbies from a formal living room into a local destination where guests spend time, by themselves or with people that matter, to relax and socialize.
“It’s very fitting that our flagship brand, Marriott Hotels is seeing a rapid expansion in the Kingdom. The opening of a Marriott Hotel in Makkah is part of our commitment to fill a growing gap in the religious tourism sector in the region, which experts estimate will exponentially increase as the population of the Islamic faith grows. We are privileged to have opened our first-ever Marriott Hotel in this Holy City to serve millions of global pilgrims over the years to come,” said Alex Kyriakidis, President, Middle East & Africa of Marriott International.
The company’s commitment to the Kingdom is deep-rooted with its 35-year old legacy in the region. Marriott International began its first operations in the Middle East region with the opening of the 411-room Riyadh Marriott Hotel in Saudi Arabia in 1980. In addition to help boosting religious tourism in the Kingdom with this milestone opening, Marriott International has set its sights on further strengthening its presence in the country with 19 new Saudi properties in the project pipeline.
