Le Meridien Oran Hotel & Convention Centre offers nearly 9,000sqm of flexible meeting and event space, including two ballrooms, a pre-function area and 23 meeting rooms.

Created by Algerian artist Tewfik Boumedhi, the 2,000-metre-long façade is made of 51,000 tiles and depicts the Southern Mediterranean culture in Arab-Moresque art.

Located on Algeria's north-western Mediterranean coast, the 296-room Le Meridien Oran sits on a cliff, offering views of the Mediterranean.

Roeland Vos, president, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa & Middle East said: "This spectacular new hotel allows us to showcase Le Meridien brand's contemporary lifestyle and sophisticated origins in the city of Oran and further underlines our commitment to continued expansion in the region."

The hotel features a spa, an all-day dining restaurant with an open kitchen, a lounge bar with sea views, an Italian restaurant and a lobby bar serving coffee and tea.
