Arabia to stay in hotels

Felicity Finch travels to Saudi Arabia to find out about a controversial women-only hotel. With its own bell-women and female management team, the Luthan Hotel aims to take advantage of a new rule allowing women in Saudi Arabia to stay in hotels without a male chaperone.
Felicity meets some of the staff and guests to hear about their lives and experiences. Some people see the hotel as a sign of progress, but others say that it simply reinforces gender segregation in a nation where women are not even allowed to drive.
