HBA completes Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh revamp

December 8, 2020

Leading hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) has completed the refurbishment of the Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh, adding more stylish rooms, suites and public areas updated with a fresh look and feel that both celebrates Saudi heritage and captures the excitement of the nation’s vibrant future.

With an enviable location in the heart of the Saudi Arabian capital, Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh remains an architectural icon in Riyadh’s skyline, occupying the 30th to 48th floors of the Kingdom Centre.

The newly redesigned guestrooms and suites reveal an entirely new look that immerse guests in the Saudi culture, said a top official.

'The redesigned spaces embrace the heritage of the city and at the same time, reflect contemporary aesthetics and the design-savvy sensibility of the modern traveller who expects a sensory experience and a place of comfort within the hotel,' remarked Guenter Gebhard, General Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh.

The luxury tower at Kingdom Centre is set to welcome guests to experience the hotel’s revamped rooms and suites after an extensive renovation that leaves the hotel well placed to maintain its leading edge in the Riyadh hospitality landscape.

Inspired by the literal meaning of Riyadh, which translates as 'garden,' the guest rooms showcase two distinctive colour palettes. Vivid shades of green and turquoise set the tone through the carpets, custom wall coverings and handmade accessories crafted by local artisans, remarked Gebhard.

Decorative walls incorporate historic tribal patterns engraved in wood, a recurring motif that is also found in the bespoke closet wall coverings and the sliding window panels that connect the bathroom with the bedroom.

Each of the wall panels are accented with stylish tufted and stitched leather upholstery, further adding to the air of luxurious refinement, he explained.

Artwork selected in partnership with philanthropic foundation, Alwaleed Philanthropies, chaired by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, focuses on empowering and celebrating local craftsmanship and is an uplifting reflection of the spirit of these fresh new rooms.

Each room and suite has also been modernised and provides guests with all the comforts of advanced in-room technology such as automated curtains and lighting systems, iPads, smart TVs, Bose Bluetooth speakers and smart makeup mirrors, stated Gebhard.

'Our new look, combined with our team’s warm hospitality and Lead With Care health and safety program, offers an authentic and safe luxury experience for guests unlike any other in the city,' he added.
