IHG signed a management agreement with leading hospitality supplier, The Arabian Hospitality Company, to open Holiday Inn Madinah West in 2022.
The new property will cater to the influx of religious tourists expected as part of Vision 2030. It also reinforces IHG’s commitment to expand its presence and diversify its portfolio across the Kingdom.
Once completed, the 700-key property will be IHG’s fourth hotel in Madinah, joining InterContinental Dar Al Hijra, InterContinental Dar Al Iman, and Crowne Plaza Madinah.

Religious tourism remains a major driving force of Saudi’s economy and we continue to strengthen our offering to cater to this important group of travelers. Holiday Inn is a brand known and preferred by travelers across the globe, and we are confident that Holiday Inn Madinah West will be a great success.”
