Doha’s small town warmth and charm coupled with the vibrant urban ambience makes it a metropolis of wonderful contrasts.
And the Doha Marriott, a historical landmark which is conveniently situated in the heart of town offering contemporary accommodations, enjoys an enviable place in Qatar’s capital city.
“Qatar’s hospitality industry is growing at an astounding rate. Both the supply and demand parameters are growing progressively. The growing number of hotels currently under construction provides a very bright picture about the market potential. While most of the additional supply in the past came from the five-star categories, a significant number of four- and three-star developments are underway. In response to the vision that the authorities have for the Doha market, the Doha Marriott has raised the standards of the five-star segments and will continue to surpass all other categories,” said Joe Batshon, the general manager of the Doha Marriott.
According to Batshon, what sets the Doha Marriott apart in the face of the competition is the fact that the hotel is certainly living up to its reputation as being the pioneer in the local hotel community when it comes to innovative services created solely with business travellers’ convenience, comfort, ease and enjoyment in mind. “We have positioned ourselves as a business hotel even though we encompass all the components of a resort hotel,” he pointed out.
The guestrooms boast a fresh look and feel, elegantly furnished with state-of-the-art technology from wireless high speed internet access to flat screen TV sets. The bedding has been custom-made to absorb fatigue allowing guests to awake refreshed and ready to surpass their personal best.
For those who want to relax, there’s nothing like the luxury experience that The Spa at The Doha Marriott has to offer. Here, guests can experience a world of tranquility and well being for the body, mind and soul. In an unhurried and nurturing environment, each guest is guided on an individual path to beauty for both the inner and outer selves.
“This haven of luxury, complete with private treatment rooms, provides the latest in skin therapies, touch therapies and body wrap therapies all whilst enjoying the breathtaking views of the Arabian Sea,” said Batshon. The Spa boutique exclusively features products and accessories from the luxurious Pevonia Botanica, skincare lines which is only available in the most elite salons in North America and Europe. Besides, expertly trained staff are at hand to delight guests with an array of beauty treatments.
Since dining is recognised as one of the most essential features of our guest’s experience, The Doha Marriott chefs work to provide a meticulous combination of technical skill, the freshest regional and imported ingredients, exquisite presentation and originality. Gourmet dining and impeccable personal service are hallmarks of The Doha Marriott Hotel. “Offering a variety of innovative and diverse venues, the Restaurant Gallery at The Doha Marriott can give pleasure to any discerning palate,” pointed out Batshon.
One of the highlights of the hotel is the Pearl Lounge, the city’s most exclusive address. Its guarded privacy whispers uninhibited grandeur, where no indulgence is spared. Access is restricted to members given only to a privileged few. The pearl lounge is a sophisticated gathering place for the fabulously fashionable where evening cocktails, interesting conversation and soft, intimate lighting is enhanced by a rich colour scheme. The Pearl lounge also features four lavish bars offering the city’s pre-eminent selection of cocktails.
A feast for the senses is the palette of culinary and beverage presentations which exhibit the impressive distinction of our master chefs. This contemporary club offers a central meeting point around a main cocktail bar and a “chill out” dinning area set against the backdrop of the latest European and world lounge music. “This stylish and unique presentation of taste is an experience unlike any other in Doha,” added Batshon.
And last but not the least, classically elegant surroundings and impeccable Marriott service provide a tasteful backdrop for corporate meetings, business presentations and exclusive social events. Whether planning a meeting, conference, wedding or any other special event, guests certainly want to create a treasured experience.
“The timeless elegance, character and style of The Doha Marriott will expand new experiences for you and your contemporaries. At The Doha Marriott we offer experiences few can rival. All our chic meetings rooms’ offers broadband roaming internet for wired and wireless access, to ensure you meet with success,” said Batshon. “Our components combined work harmoniously to enhance each guest’s experience, allowing them to focus on their business, whilst at the same time indulging their senses.”
