Had high expectations with this chain, staff tried very hard, but didn't always deliver. The hotel is surrounded by building sites (as is much of Doha) initial room was looking directly at the builders across the road on the 27th floor! Thankfully moved to a much better view without building site right out the window. Given only one side of the hotel has high rise building work at the moment, and I specified would be nice with a view at check in, wouldn't have been too hard to get a good room to start with! Pool was nice, but often crowded during the day. View from 46th floor gym & pool is great. Nothing was said about the bar on the top 56th floor, so if you're interested in getting a drink and a stunning view head up there, although smokey. City Centre shopping mall is very short walking distance, offering shopping, selection of food and easy taxi, given taxis were not easy at the hotel. 20 minute walk to Al Corniche, although not that easy to get to through the building areas at the moment, nice to walk along.
