I stayed here for a week on a business trip to Jeddah. The lobby is impressive and the staff helpful and efficient. The location is good, near to several coffee shops (Aroma was recommended to me) and restaurants, with the Corniche nearby for evening strolls.
I only ate in Al Ferdouz, the buffet restaurant. This had local and international dishes for lunch and breakfast, all of which were well done. Fruit juices were freshly squeezed and cakes were plentiful and appealing.
My room, overlooking the lobby, was quite noisy at night. It was a bit cramped for such a long stay, although perfectly comfortable. I had a view of the fountain from the balcony, but as this had no table or chairs outside, I couldn't really take advantage of the view in the evenings.
The hotel (male only) gym is excellent - very well-equipped with lots of machines and free-weights. It was very quiet whenever I used it! I did not use the pool, as it was simply too hot for me during the day and I was busy in the evenings. Obviously I did not try the ladies gym!
