MECCA, SAUDI ARABIA-Fairmont Raffles Hotels International has opened its $400 million new hotel in the city, the Raffles Mecca Palace, within steps of the Holy Mosque. The 213-suite hotel will serve the eight million annual Muslim visitors to the city, half of which come on pilgrimage to this city.

The suites are adorned in luxury, with four restaurants, male-female segregated workout facilities and a personal butler for each room. The hotel is on floor 11-26 of the Abraj Al Bait Complex, a $3 billion, 15.6-million-square-foot mixed-use residential-retail complex being developed by the Saudi Binladin Co. The complex will also eventually include the Mecca Clock Tower Fairmont Hotel, which will add more than 800 more rooms and suites.
