Cairo, Egypt, May 15, 2003: Holiday Inn hotels and resorts across the Middle East are offering families a wide range of great value getaways this summer.

In Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE and Yemen, 20 Holiday Inn hotels and resorts are presenting highly attractive weekend rooms rates as part of the 2003 Weekends programme, with room rates as low as $40 per night from
