Mark Willis, area senior vice president, Middle East, Turkey & Africa for the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said: “We are delighted to open our first hotel in the holy city with Park Inn by Radisson Makkah Al-Naseem. This is a significant hotel addition not just for the Park Inn by Radisson brand but for the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, as we now begin to see our strong development pipeline across Saudi Arabia materialize, with multiple hotel openings coming to fruition in the next 18 months.”

“We believe the Park Inn by Radisson brand is entering this important segment at a very opportune time to support the increase in pilgrim travelers seeking affordable accommodation and a hassle-free experience. The growth of religious tourism to the Kingdom and the holy city of Makkah for local and international travelers is expected to grow, and we are well placed to provide all the essentials of an international hotel brand,” added Willis.
