“Great Services and Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I booked this hotel for a trip with family. We initially booked a room with two queen beds during Eid holiday. At time of check in the room was not ready and we were asked to wait till the room is prepared. Fortunately enough, and after an extended period of time we were offered an upgrade with lots of hotel amenities access.
The hotel staff are so professional. The hotel it self is great with nice interior designs.
Generally, great experience.

This hotel is so elegant from the moment you enter the lobby. The service is super helpful. I got scared only by the bodyguards they have as security at the hotel's door, which made me feel a little bit insecure that troubles do happen at the hotel, maybe because of Crystal club on their first floor, I dont know. The rooms are dim..that is something I dont fancy but many people liked the lightings of the room so maybe if you are someone like me who loves bright light, you shouldnt go for the W. The food is awesome specially lunch at their Spice Market. The facilities are amazing, the Gym, the pool and the W cafe is a great place to have their best red velvet in town. there is another pub called Waham which is quiter than Crystal. So this makes the W a place where you can spend the whole day at...

I visited here for 4 nights during the October Eid holiday.
This hotel is outstanding in every respect. My room was modern yet stylish, the bathroom was excellent and the beds were so comfy. No noise from the corridor or street.
The service was friendly and efficient everywhere from the reception to the bars, the restaurants and the maid service.
There is no need to venture out if you can't be bothered as it would seem that the Wahm bar, the Cristal club and the pool bar are some of the top places to go for a night out in Doha.
Would definitely stay again.

The W in Doha is one of the nicest hotels in Doha. Its hip set-up makes staying there a rather unique experience. I have stayed there for more than three months prior to deciding to move to another hotel.
Let’s start with the Pros: 1) Central Location; 2) Amazing set-up; 3) Nice music playing all day long throughout the corridors; 4) Nice and cozy rooms; 5) Great food (including the buffet during Ramdan period); 6) Friendly staff, willing to accommodate your requests, 7) The Whatever Whenever service is great as it allowed us to deliver food from the hotel to our work place on a regular basis
So what’s the issue then? 1) Rooms are very dark if you’re there to work, unless you stay at the W Suite, or in one of the serviced apartments; 2) construction is taking place right next to hotel, with a government approval to work 24/7, i.e. you may be lucky enough to end up in one of the rooms facing the construction site, thus listen to the symphonies of tractors, drillers, and cranes throughout the night; 3) If you’re fortunate enough not to land on the side facing the construction works, you may still be so lucky to end up in of the rooms on top of the hotel’s club, where you will be forced to listen to the music and party along until the break of dawn, God forbid you want to sleep
So if you’re there for a relaxing vacation, then I recommend you stay at another hotel, if you’re there for work related purposes, then I would also recommend you stay somewhere more quite, but if you’re there to enjoy the Doha night life, then that’s DEFINITELY the place to be.

The W features one the best thought out hotel rooms I have ever stayed. Everything is luxurious and stylish, so much so that the first instinct is to think "this is style over substance". I have stayed 3-4 times now and this is never the case, superb experience.

The W Doha is consistently excellent. It is perfectly located in West Bay, a short walk to the Corniche, city center mall, or a variety of other eateries. The service is impeccable, and the rooms are well appointed. The hotel is well managed and delivers consistent top-notch service. The restaurants and bars are among the very best in the country. If you're in Doha and want to stay in "the most happening place"--stay here. You won't be disappointed.
