What is a historic hotel like in Mecca?

Historic hotels give guests the opportunity to stay in a place that's been officially recognised with a historic designation. Historic hotels throughout the world can take the form of palaces, castles, stately homes or even lodges, pubs or skyscrapers — any building that’s been identified as being of special interest. These types of hotels in Mecca often preserve original elements like traditional architecture and period features in their communal spaces or guestrooms.

What is the difference between a historic hotel and a heritage hotel?

The two are similar. "Historic hotel" is more commonly used in the U.S., while "heritage hotel" is often used in Asia and Europe. Historic hotels tend to emphasise the architecture and building. A heritage hotel draws meaning mainly from the place's cultural value and how it influenced the community.

Do historic hotels in Mecca have modern facilities?

Yes, efforts are made to preserve the historic aspects and traditions, but hotel interiors are fitted with modern conveniences and safety features. Tourists who book a stay can expect the amenities you'd get from a hotel such as Smart TVs, WiFi and updated bathroom facilities. Booking a historic hotel in Mecca doesn't mean you're choosing a place that's rundown.
