Revealed: Top business hotels in Doha
Our top picks including luxury stays and wallet-friendly options
As Qatar’s capital continues to grow into an international business hub, we take a look at its top hotels for business travellers. Whether you’re looking for luxury accommodation, budget-friendly choices or strategically-located options, you’ll find it in our below list: W Doha Hotel & Residences: Despite it not looking like your typical business hotel, the W Doha Hotel & Residences has rooms equipped with the latest technology including iPod docking stations as well as a spacious work desk. It also houses several high-end dining outlets (for those deal-closing nights), a spa and a pool. The W Doha is located just 25 minutes from Hamad International Airport. Four Seasons Hotel Doha: It’s hard to go wrong with the Four Seasons. This Doha branch is particularly impressive because it combines business with leisure and features a private beach and marina. It is also home to the world’s largest Nobu Japanese restaurant – a favourite among businessmen – as well as a three-story spa and five pools. Its rooms are designed with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking city and Arabian Gulf views. The Four Seasons is located minutes away from the central business district and embassies and just 20 minutes from the airport. DoubleTree by Hilton Doha Old Town: This ultra-modern hotel was designed with businesspeople in mind. Each of its rooms encompasses a large work desk while some include an additional chaise longue if you prefer a more relaxed work-setting. Free Wi-Fi is available in all areas at the property as well - meaning no signal cuts in the middle of sending that important email. It is a 12-minute drive from the airport. Crowne Plaza Doha, The Business Park: The name itself reveals this hotel is great for businesspeople. Besides its location in the city’s financial district, it is a five-minute drive from the airport. It has six on-site restaurant, spacious rooms, a business centre, a spa and a fitness centre. It’s also one of the most affordable options on the list if you’re looking for budget-friendly hotels. Fraser Suites Doha: We like Fraser Suites because it offers luxury services for prices that will not break the bank. This particular property is great for business and pleasure as it offers modern and spacious accommodation with iPod docking stations as well as a spa and two dining venues. The property is located along the Corniche promenade and is a mere 12 minute walk from the beach. Its room also overlook the Doha Port and the Indian Ocean. Marriott Marquis City Center Doha: If you want to make the most of your stay in Doha, opt for this 5-star Marriott in City Centre Mall. It is situated in Doha’s West Bay district near the Qatar Exhibition Center and Qatar Financial Center. Finish up your business meetings in the hotel’s dining venues which include Brazilian, Italian and Arabian cuisines and follow them up with a swim in the hotel’s Olympic-size outdoor pool or indoor heated pool on the 44th floor. The hotel also houses its famed Saray Spa as well as a fitness center featuring personal training. InterContinental Doha The City: Also located beside the Qatar Financial Centre, this hotel is known for its spacious rooms which include a kitchen as well as its various dining venues. It includes four restaurants and three lounges including the highest lounge in Doha which boasts views of the city skyline. The hotel is a 12-minute walk from the beach and houses an outdoor pool and state-of-the-art fitness centre. Kempinski Residences & Suites, Doha: You can count on luxury when it comes to Kempinski. Luckily, the brand also knows how to integrate a business-y feeling into its hotels. Its spacious rooms have an open-plan living with a dining area and separate bedroom – who said you need to feel suffocated while away on business – as well as mesmerising city views (Who doesn’t appreciate a good view?) The property itself is a 13 minute-walk from the beach and also houses a pool, a restaurant, a bar, a wellness and leisure centre and a children’s playroom if you’re bringing along your little ones.
