HAIL —
A hotel for women only is expected to open soon in the northern city of Hail, according to Al-Watan newspaper on Sunday.

The hotel will be the second of its kind in the Kingdom after the first one was opened in Riyadh.

The hotel will be solely managed by women who will work as administrators, receptionists, room-service staff, restaurant workers, engineers and security guards.

Omar Ali, supervisor of the project, said women customers would have absolute privacy especially that all the staff would be female.

He said the hotel would have more than 25 rooms in addition to suites, which are specially designed for women.

Ali said voice mail and room service would be available 24 hours a day while adding that there would be special services for businesswomen.

He said more than a thousand women so far applied for jobs in the hotel, which is expected to open soon.

Asked about the prices, the supervisor said it would not be more than the prices of other facilities.

“All the services a woman may need are available under one roof in a luxurious setting,” he said.

Ali said the idea of the hotel was warmly welcomed by the local community and that a number of residents visited the site to know more about the project.

He said the idea might be expanded and that a number of hotels for women might be established in various parts of the Kingdom.
