Saudi Gazette hosts 24 American youth at Al Faisaliah Hotel
Al Faisaliah Hotel in partnership with the local media publication the Saudi Gazette hosted 24 young American male and female college students during their recent visit to Riyadh and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The visit is part of an initiative undertaken by Saudi Gazette with the aim of introducing to the students the great Saudi traditions and cultural values, so that they can help in turn educate their own fellow students on their return to the USA of the unique opportunities of visiting and conducting business between these two great countries.
“We are glad to be part of this important programme initiated by Saudi Gazette,” said Mr. Alphy Jonhson, Regional Vice President of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. He added, “Indeed, we feel it is our duty to participate in showing the American public and the world, the deep-rooted values and rich cultural heritage of Saudi Arabia and the Arab world in general. The Al Faisaliah Hotel is uniquely capable of supporting such an initiative as we represent the best qualities and virtues of both countries, being a distinguished landmark in Riyadh owned by the revered King Faisal Foundation, and at the same time, forming part of the internationally renown Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.” Stated Johnson
