In reference to the new hotel, IHG Hotels and Resorts Managing Director Haitham Mattar says, “The signature Vignette Collection offering, inspired by location, history, and architecture, is created for the next-generation luxury and lifestyle traveler.” The company anticipates an increase in travelers to the region and plans to be prepared or their arrival.
