Ramada has opened its largest hotel, a 998-room property in the Islamic holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Located in the holy district of the Haram, a site of the highest sanctity, and less than a quarter of a mile from the Holy Mosque, the 29-story Ramada Makkah caters to guests looking to make the pilgrimage to Mecca during the Hajj and Umrah seasons.

In addition to being located within walking distance of many of the city’s holy sites the property offers private underground parking, four restaurants and meeting space for up to 250 guests. Each room features high-speed Internet access, free local and long distance telephone calls, a 26-inch plasma television and an in-room safe.

The hotel, owned by Riyada International Hotels and Resorts and managed by Al Massa Hotels, is the Ramada brand’s second property in Mecca and its 11th in Saudi Arabia.

“With the opening of this property, Wyndham Hotel Group builds upon an already strong relationship with Riyada International Hotels and Resorts as well as Al Massa Hotels,” said Sean Worker, Wyndham Hotel Group senior vice president and managing director, international operations.
