Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre recently launched an expansive renovation project to update guestrooms, suites and public areas to better reflect the present and future of Saudi heritage and tourism.
The hotel, located within Kingdom Centre tower, is currently working on guestroom and suite renovations across spaces between the 30th and 40th floors, with a February deadline. Then, the hotel expects to commence renovations in the lobby and lobby lounge, as well as in the remaining five floors of guestrooms. Renovations are expected to conclude by November.
Four Seasons partnered with local artisans and organizations to reflect authentic Saudi heritage and craftsmanship throughout the hotel’s new design, from decorative art panels in the new lobby to carpeting throughout the property. Guestrooms will sport two color palettes, historic tribal patterns and leather upholstery.
“Since first opening its doors to guests in 2003, Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre has established itself at the pinnacle of the city’s hospitality scene. Our renovation will ensure that we continue to create incredible experiences for our guests and bring them a true taste of Saudi heritage through the unique artworks on display,” said Guenter Gebhard, general manager, Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre. “Art and design has always been a major focus for Four Seasons, and we are proud to support the community by offering a platform for emerging and established local creatives.”
