Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn® hotels in , an opulent oasis in the , where sleek architecture shares tree-lined streets with ancient mosques.
Two futuristic skyscrapers serve as landmarks in the bustling Olaya District, the city's commercial heart near our hotels in . The top of Al Faisaliah Tower comes to a point over a giant golden orb, and the upside-down arch atop the gleaming silver lights up the night sky with rotating colors. The citywide views from 's 99th-floor will take your breath away. For an overview of Arabian history, religion and culture, check out the artifacts and life-size dioramas at the National Museum of Saudi Arabia, near our hotels in the Al Murabba district.

Hail a white taxi and head to the oldest part of the city and the colorful market stalls at Dira Souk to haggle over hand-woven carpets and Arabic antiques. If you're in the market for pearls, spices and Bedouin jewelry, stop in at the stalls in nearby Falcon Souk. Fill up with delicious curry at Indian or Pakistani eateries throughout the city, or head to the Olaya District for more cosmopolitan fare.

Good hotel for its price and good for short stays and I would recommend it for anyone visiting for a short period[Less]
Had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Meydan! Will certainly stay there during my future visits to Riyadh![Less]
A few nights in Meydan Riyadh
This hotel is fairly new and is set back from a busy highway between the King fahad road and Kurais road.
This said on my arrival I was greeted with polite staff who acknowledge my spire elite[More] status. I had asked for a high room and originally a smoking room on this occasion was not available so I was happy to have a non smoking room and use the designated area out side the hotel.
My room was comfortable and clean but I was a bit disappointed in in that room did not have a view facing out to the city. which is why I had asked for a high floor.
The dinning area was clean and bright breakfast and evening meals were very tasty and hot with a very good variety of choices.
Overall this a comfortable stay in this hotel and I would comeback. and recommend it to my colleagues .[Less]
