Three major hoteliers have signed deals with Saudi Arabia’s Jabal Omar Development Company to operate new hotels in Makkah. JODC plans to open up to 45,000 hotel rooms in 37 hotel towers to accommodate the droves of tourists and pilgrims to Makkah, one of Islam’s holiest cities.  It is expected that by the end of the decade, 14 million pilgrims will visit Makkah.

Hilton Hotels is set to operate 6 of the new hotels, with Marriott and Hyatt running 3 each.  Hilton alone says that it will need to hire and train an additional 9,000 employees to fill the needs of the new properties’ guests.  The overall cost of the full development is estimated at $5.5 billion.
