“Absolutely first class experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

True Four Seasons accommodations and service matching my expectations from the US and elsewhere. Great food, especially the breakfast buffet. Nicest hotel I have found in Riyadh. Location in Kingdom Center with direct access to the mall very convenient.

Level of service as expected from the Four Seasons. Rooms clean and comfortable. View also beautiful (did not believe my own eyes!) Staff was courteous and professional. HINT: The hotel airport limousine is very expensive. If you arrive late at night/ early in the morning, negotiate with airport taxis hard and do not pay a single SAR above 100. Usual rates are SAR60-70.

Room Tip: Go as high as possible.

Maybe could be described as a typical restaurant at a 5* hotel. Pleasant - but not reflecting local cuisine, expensive, and not really memorable.

This is a typical Four Seasons --- including the price. If you are looking for "a deal" in Riyadh, go elsewhere. What you get at this location is lots of special attention by well trained front desk, restaurant, food & beverage, housekeeping, room service and security staff. During my ten day stay, I had contact with all of them. You are greeted whenever you pass an employee and calls to any element within the hotel will be greeting you by your name.

The restaurants are first class and this hotel has one of the finest fitness facilities I have ever experienced in a hotel environment.

Down sides??? Other than price, there is often overwhelming congestion in front of the hotel; especially in the evening. However, the staff seems to do a pretty good job at getting vehicles moved through the circle in front of the hotel with only short waits. The downtown location sometime inflicts traffic woes on your commute to appointments, so plan accordingly. Generally, you are about 20 minutes from EVERYWHERE except the airport. That transit will be 30 to 40 minutes.

Did I mention the hotel is attached to the Kingdom Tower Shopping Center? Not a huge mall but enough high end retailers to put your credit card to the test.

Room Tip: No down side to any of the rooms.

Sometimes there are things in life that are difficult to describe with words and this was one of them… The quality of the food was impressive, everything was perfect, since the moment me and my colleagues arrive to the place until the moment we left.
It was not cheap but something that I do not mind is to pay a price that is related to the quality of the food and service and this was the case.
The service was also very good and staff was nice.
Definitely an experience to repeat.
