Hilton Worldwide Opens First Tower at Hilton Suites Makkah Hotel

Rob Palleschi, global head, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, said, “Overlooking the Grand Holy Masjid in the centre of Makkah, the Jabal Omar development – one of the largest hotel developments in the world – meets the growing demand for a wider variety of accommodations from the rising number of travellers visiting Saudi Arabia every year. We look forward to welcoming visitors to this important region to our fifth hotel in the country, and to offering guests the world-class service and amenities for which the Hilton brand is known.

Just 100 kilometers from Jeddah International Airport, many of the city’s holy sites and popular Makkah attractions are just a short distance from the hotel. Pilgrims and guests can visit the Masjid al-Haram and the Kaaba, drink water from ZamZam Well, hike to the peak of Jabal al-Nour – the Mountain of Light, admire the fascinating exhibits on display at Makkah Museum and shop in one of the many stores at the extensive Makkah Mall.

Hilton Suites Makkah features a range of amenities designed for both the business and religious guest. Guest rooms are designed to convey a sense of balance, space, luxury, comfort and symmetry, featuring a unique color scheme based on the five times of prayers throughout the day – sunrise, noon, late afternoon, sunset and nighttime – in addition to generous work areas and WiFi access.

Ideal for families and groups, the hotels offers spacious suites with superior views of either the city or the Holy Haram, a separate living area and several amenities including a 24-hour fitness center, a 24-hour business center, 24-hour car parking and an in-house clinic onsite for instant medical care. Guests can chose to dine at one of the five distinct outlets: Al-Khalil café, Al-Falak lounge, Al-Kawkab lounge, The Orchid Asian Restaurant and Al-Qandeel All Day Dining Restaurant. The hotels also boast two flexible meeting spaces and the latest A/V equipment.

Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Hilton Worldwide Middle East & Africa said, “Saudi Arabia has seen a steady increasing number of religious and business travellers over the past years. As the world’s largest pilgrimage site, Makkah attracts millions of people from every corner of the world during the annual Hajj and the seasonal Umrah pilgrimage. Hilton Worldwide entered the holy city 19 years ago with its maiden property Makkah Hilton & Towers, the first international hotel to open in Makkah. The opening of Hilton Suites Makkah complements the existing hotel and supports the growing pace of visitors going to Makkah.”

In addition, this regional growth will allow Hilton Worldwide to support the Saudization employment plan.

Ismail Sirry, general manager, Hilton Suites Makkah said, “Hilton has a well-recognized presence in Makkah as well as the region, and with the opening of Hilton Suites Makkah we aim to continue delivering the Arabian hospitality and comfort to meet our guests’ needs and ease their hardship during their spiritual journey.”
