Stayed two nights on a short business visit to Riyadh. Very pleasant stay, very good food, responsive staff, and lovely surroundings. As a woman, as previous writers have noted, limited to no use of facilities--e.g. Cannot use fitness center, swimming pool, etc. and abaya (though not head covering) required in public areas of the hotel per Saudi custom. Unlike other locations, dining is communal and buffet, while pricey, is of high quality. What previous writers have not noted is that if you are a woman, the staff will provide you upon request with room-based exercise equipment (exercise bike) for your use as available. This was very much appreciated by me along with the friendly staff, and I think they have done a really nice job of making Western visitors, especially women, feel comfortable as possible.
