Holiday Inn

I passed by the new Holiday Inn today. The new Holiday Inn is located across the street from Showbiz and has only been open for a week now. I was there on business and was able to check out the whole place. I have to say, I am impressed. Although the building that contains Holiday Inn used to be an apartment building before, they have managed to totally convert the inside to one of the nicest looking hotels in Kuwait. The lobby is very beautiful and modern, it has a really high ceiling made mostly of glass and the furniture is all very tasteful. I checked out the regular room, the executive room, the junior suite and the executive suite. They all are very handsomely decorated and are very affordable. The executive suite which is the largest room they have is 2 large rooms, one is a living area with its own bathroom, small kitchen and plasma screen with internet access while the bedroom features a large king sized bed with a wall to wall cupboard and a large bathroom which includes a jacuzzi and a shower. All for only KD110 a night. They have a Lebanese restaurant on the ground floor called Ayam Zaman. It is easily by far the best decorated Lebanese restaurant in Kuwait. Very elegant and very beautiful. They also have a Chinese restaurant but I wasn't able to check it out because it was still under construction. Outside the restaurant though they had this huge stone mural on the wall which I took a close up picture of. I am seriously surprised at how nice the place turned out to be. The only issue I found was that the corridor to the rooms seemed a bit cramped, but other then that its a very refined hotel.

Someone should do a collection of images depicting the "ghettos" of kuwait. Disturbing pictures showing the degree of poverty that exists within a nation that met its entire year's budget in just the first quarter of this year. Now that would be contrast!
