AL KHOBAR, Saudi Arabia, September 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Park Inn by Radisson Al Khobar was recently awarded the 'Best Mid-market Hotel in Saudi Arabia' at the first ever Saudi Excellence in Tourism Awards. The awards are held under the patronage of HRH Prince Sultan Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz, the president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities.
The Park Inn hotel in Al Khobar fought off tough competition from 16 other nominees in its category to receive the top honour. The nominees for each category were decided by the public through an online vote before a panel of eight leading national and international experts connected with tourism, hospitality, marketing and commerce, determined the winners based on a range of criteria.
Frank Eikeland, General Manager at the hotel said: "This award is testament to all of our hard work here at Park Inn Al Khobar and it's a great honour to be recognised by our industry colleagues and of course, our customers.
"This achievement will substantiate our presence in the Kingdom and will further position Park Inn by Radisson as a pioneer in mid-market hotel brands in Saudi Arabia. We are committed to continuing our work in helping to grow and diversify the tourism industry in this country."
The Saudi Excellence in Tourism Awards recognises organisations and individuals within the travel trade that have made a significant contribution to the Kingdom's growing tourism industry. The awards are supported by Alef Publishing & Media - the publishers of Saudi Voyager magazine - which has been the main driving force behind the awards under the support of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities.
The hotel in Saudi Arabia is part of the Rezidor Hotel Group, which also manages five other properties in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, under the group's up-scale brand, Radisson Blu.
