I have booked a Standard room and i was upgrade to a Deluxe one.

The room had small living area with big desk to work with everything already setup (phone, internet, etc).

The bathroom was clean and have a decent size shower.
The breakfast had a very nice buffet
Internet is free.

I am am very satisfied and i think this hotel is really value for the price they charge.

Unfortunately,I have staid one night only in this hotel.

This hotel is a sure bet!

The rooms are quiet. The service anticipates your needs. The style is both attractive and functional, for example lighting where you need it in a variety of choices, a stone shower stall that is spacious with two shower heads, gliding drawers, etc. You feel that the design of the rooms were thought out with you in mind.
The breakfast buffet ranged with dishes from several cuisines and in portions that were small enough to allow you to taste much from many.

Room Tip: The mini suites are three room partitions in a row and pleasant. The standard room is a long one. I...

Having previously used the le Meridien I was booked into the Intercontinental accidentally, but it turned out to be a nice hotel. While not on the Corniche, it is in a nice part of town, but there are some security concerns. It does not have the usual high security entrance, and can be approached without passing through any form of evident security (although there is a security barrier from the main road, this can be circumvented). Also the hotel comprises two buildings and the second building, where I stayed, has a desk that was not manned when I arrived. The lift does require a room card to activate it which is somewhat reassuring. I can imagine in Summer that the walk from one building to the other would not be appreciated in high heat and humidity. Room was modern and well appointed, with free internet, and was reasonably priced. Breakfast was of a high quality, with a full choice of buffet items. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and were a highlight of the visit. Courteous, friendly and went the extra mile.

Arrival at the hotel was smooth and check in efficient and quick.
The "standard" room consisted of a seperate sitting area, desk and table, leading through to a seperate area where the bedroom was. Only a shower in the bathroom. A pity was only there for one night.
Dinner was excellent and on the night I stayed was a seafood buffet with the fish/seafood cooked to order.
Breakfast did not dissapoint either.
A couple of matters that stopped me giving an excellent rating:
The shower did not work and despite immeadiate atttention by maintenance still did not work the morning after!
The hotel failed to accept that the room was prepaid for and I had to pay again (However an exchange of emails the room charge was refunded to my credit card).

Overall : pity about the shower... an excellent hotel for business travel.

Very nice hotel at a fair price. The rooms are amazing. The people are nice, though there were a few hiccups during my stay. The service in the lobby cafe is weak.

The hotel is split across two buildings. The front desk in the new building was unstaffed on a few occasions, raising some security concerns for me.

Fabulous rooms...all suites, large desks, fast Internet and very comfy beds. Gym is ok, only one restaurant which can be a bit tedious if you're there a while, but a few restaurants near if you feel like a change. Conference facilities are good and staff very helpful and professional. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when in Damman, Khobar or Dharan.

Room Tip: I've heard some rooms have AC noise, you want to be turning right out of the lift.

For the whole team from top to bottom, we, Red Bull Saudi Arabia are proud and impressed by your genuine service and hospitality that were shown to us during our "Red Bull RasBRas" event which was the biggest event in the Middle east which gather the arab rally champions on one track. (check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1c88iq9VpkE)

we were happy with the sales team support, staff kindness, rooms arrangement, and food quality in house and outside espacial on the event site....

Last but not least, a special thank for the Mr.Niazi, Mr.Samer , Mr.Khamiss and the Executive Chef-Raff Grip and their respective teams for the presentation and the set up of the food in the event VIP area.

In light of the above, we are pleased to further expand our business relationship in 2012.
