I absolutely love the Fairmont in Riyadh. Not only is it classy, close to the office and served amazing cuisine, but its staff is so caring and attentive to your details. I would like to thank Dewidar and Sarah for their warm hospitality and for always making me feel at home.

This was an excellent blend of luxury, business and convenience. The rooms are all very modern and well furnished. The air conditioning is very easy to control and comfortable. The restaurants, room service and food was very high quality. All services you could desire in a very convenient location near the convention center.
