Stayed for a week in the Blu Raddison Hotel in Jeddah for a business conference, also at the hotel.
Check in was not as quick as I would expect for a reservation, but nevertheless friendly. Good quality room and well equipped. Variety of TV channels. As is often found with Saudi hotels, the rooms are in heavy brownish colours, but comfortable with good quality bed and sheets.
I like a bath after long international flights although it was leaking water out as quickly as I could put it in. So had to settle for a shower. My wash basin could also hardly keep water in.
Very good internet and I appreciated the reliable access to my mails etc.
The restaurant is of average quality. Waiters are too few and also not very attentive. With supper it took 10 minutes before anyone asked if I wanted something to drink. With two breakfasts no one ask me if I wanted coffee as no waiter approached me or looked up at all. On the third day I made a point to ask for coffee as walked in - but received cold coffee - so didn't bother anymore - made coffee in my room.
I liked the gym with a good variety of quality equipment. There is unfortunately no swimming pool - real pity for Saudi!
The conference venue was very traditional and with lose everything as it doubles up as a banqueting hall. But it was reasonably functional although it had poor lighting for such a venue (again designed for banqueting). But all okay with friendly staff, good quality beverages and snacks.
