InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a 15-year management agreement with Al Andalus Property for a Staybridge Suites hotel in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Staybridge Suites Al Andalus Mall is due to be the first Staybridge Suites property to open in Saudi Arabia.

The deal closely follows IHGs announcement of plans for a Staybridge Suites property on Hira Street in Jeddah, demonstrating the increasing demand for extended stay properties in this important commercial hub.

Construction is already underway on the 164-key Staybridge Suites Al Andalus Mall, which will be positioned in Al Andalus Square, currently under development on Kind Abdullah Street in the heart of the new city centre. Once complete, the square will be a major landmark in this densely populated part of the city.

Hathal Alutaibi, Director of Marketing & Business Development, Al Andalus Property, said, The Al-Andalus Square is one of the most important developments in Jeddah. It is characterised by its outstanding location around the King Abdul Aziz field, stretching over 800 metres. Its also home to the Andalus Mall which is one of the largest and most successful commercial centres in Jeddah that includes a selection of world-renowned brands and an average number of one million visitors per month. As an internationally recognised extended stay property, Staybridge Suites will be an attractive prospect for many travellers to Jeddah who are looking for a spacious extended stay apartment style suite in a hotel that understands their individual needs.

The Staybridge Suites brand launched in 1998 and the first Staybridge Suites in the Middle East opened in Cairo in 2008 and is expanding rapidly across the Middle East with seven properties in the pipeline.
