Accor has opened its first Novotel hotel in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, as part of its expansion plans in the country.
Located in the Dammam Business Park, the 159-room hotel offers 22 suites, 29 superior rooms and 108 standard rooms across six floors.
The new property is part of a network of 15 Novotel hotels in the region. Nine hotels with 2,030 rooms in total are in operation, while six hotels with 1,590 rooms in total are under development in Syria and the UAE, set to open by 2014.
The opening of Novotel in Dammam follows the recent signing of two new hotels in Jeddah and two hotels under construction in Riyadh and Yanbu.
