Makkah Clock Royal Tower: dignified elegant hotel in the heart of Mecca

Pilgrims heading out to Mecca this year are spoiled for choice if they are looking for luxurious lodgings. The Makkah Clock Royal Tower, a Fairmont hotel, is situated in one of the world’s tallest towers with 76 stories at 577 meters high and it overlooks the Ka’aba.  The tower is quite prominent as it is topped by a four-faced clock, which Saudi Arabia deems the largest clock in the world and is more than five times larger than Big Ben.  More than its grandeur, the hotel has 858 guestrooms and suites which are elegantly designed and offer unparalleled service.

All the guest rooms come with LCD TVs, Wi-Fi, and Miller Harris luxury bathroom amenities.  Furthermore, the 76 lifts allow easy access to the holy Masjid al Haram for prayers and nine elegant dining venues that can also be rented out for private events.  The Makkah Clock Royal Tower offers two distinct spa and fitness experiences: a men’s gym and a women’s spa, which includes a sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room.

The Abraj Al Bait Complex which contains the Makkah Clock Hotel has a four-story shopping mall and a large prayer room that is capable of holding nearly ten thousand people..
