IHG to open second Saudi Staybridge hotel
Agreement signed with Al Andalus Property for Jeddah development
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has signed a 15-year management agreement with Al Andalus Property for a Staybridge Suites hotel in Jeddah.
Staybridge Suites Al Andalus Mall is due to be the first Staybridge Suites property to open in Saudi Arabia.
Construction is already underway on the 164-key Staybridge Suites Al Andalus Mall, which will be positioned in Al Andalus Square, currently under development on Kind Abdullah Street in the heart of the new city centre. Once completed, the square will be a major landmark in that part of the city.
The announcement follows closely after IHG announced plans for a Staybridge Suites property on Hira Street in Jeddah.
The brand launched in 1998, and the first Staybridge Suites in the Middle East opened in Cairo in 2008 and is expanding across the Middle East with seven properties in the pipeline.
