Prior to joining Rosewood, Blair worked in Shanghai, China as the Director of Rooms at the Renaissance Shanghai Pudong Hotel.  With 17 years experience in the hospitality industry, Blair has worked for some of the hospitality industry’s premier properties, including more than a decade with Marriott International.

Designed for both business and leisure travel, Rosewood Corniche is ideally positioned on Jeddah’s Corniche, one of the city’s most impressive districts.  The celebrated Jeddah Corniche runs parallel to the Red Sea for over 20 miles, and provides convenient access to the city’s business and leisure areas.
