Arrived after midnight from Riyadh. Check in fast and efficient. Rooms very old and worn compared to other places in the Kingdom very small. No recognition of Starwood Platinum membership. Woken up at 6:40 a.m. by building noise under my window, complimented by drilling at 6:50 a.m. When I complained to Manager on Duty, he was rude, unprofessional and did nothing to resolve the issue, claiming that most people would be awake at this time of the morning (he must have confused Saudi Arabia with NY or London). As such was lucky to get a little over 4 hours sleep. Lobby gives the impression of being in an airport terminal, with a luggage screening machine directly next to the entrance – lobby similar to the rooms old and worn. Not a Meridien at all from the standard. From pool area you can see how the hotel is falling to pieces from the outside. The only nice thing about the hotel is the breakfast buffet – seems to have been done up in the last couple of years. Unfortunately currently the best hotel in the area, however, a Moevenpick hotel scheduled to open very soon down the road – can only be better.
