Muscat to get a Holiday Inn hotel next year

May 26 - A 176-room Holiday Inn Hotel is to open in Muscat's airport and business district, Seeb, next year, said Sheikh Mubarak Abdullah Al Mubarak Al Sabah, Chairman of Action Hotels.
The project is the result of an agreement signed with Muscat-based company Al Rawahi International and Action Hotels. "Oman is committed to developing the hospitality sector and Action Hotels is equally committed to playing a role in this development with a fixed eye on the mid-scale segment," Sheikh Mubarak said.
By 2012, Action Hotels will add three more hotels to Oman, all of which will come under the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) -- Staybridge and Holiday Inn.
