InterContinental Doha The City

Reviewed December 21, 2012

8 months after my first stay at this hotel, when they first opened, still amazed by the attentiveness of the staff and the warm welcome i had. As soon as stepped into the reception, i was welcomed back, how nice to be remembered.
I was given a club room on the 42nd floor overlooking the city, with amazing view during both, night and day. It was so spacious, lounge area with exceptional fruit amenities. Large desk where you can easily use your laptop and very well lit as well.
The bathroom even more spacious including a shower room, my favourite. The shower head is a rectangular of 20x30cm, that showers you with high pressure of water. Most importantly the temperature of the water was stable and no fluctuation.
There are beautiful lounges and restaurants which i had the chance to try the Strata, on the 56th floor. It is on 2 levels, restaurant on one level and the lounge is on the mezzanine level. I had the smoked lobster, which was smoked freshly using a smoking gun, it is out of this world. As well they smoke drinks. Just wow.
This place is my favourite hotel s far in Doha

I have used this hotel for business trips since it opened last year.

Convenient central location, spacious and comfortable rooms, good bar and restaurant, well equipped gym and adequate pool. The only thing it misses is an outside pool terrace.

Of course, the most important factor is the friendliness and efficiency of the staff who are first class.

We had a 23-hour layover in Doha on our way back from India to the US, so we decided to spend a day in Doha (which turned out to be a GREAT idea) and we stayed at this hotel. It is within a 5 minute walk to the City Center Mall, and overall very centrally located. Parts of the hotel are still under construction, but we didn't find it bothersome. The whole area around the hotel is like that, in fact but again, it didn't bother me much. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms comfortable and modern. The bathroom was HUGE. Our room faced the back of Doha (towards the Aspire tower) so although it was a great view, I'm sure it wasn't as cool as facing towards the city. We had room service and it was delicious. The staff was also really helpful with helping us with cabs etc. I would definitely come back to Doha and stay again at this hotel. Great job!

Room Tip: I'm sure there's no bad view at this hotel, but I'd ask for a high floor and facing the...

I was doing a stopover on my way home to Melbourne when I stayed at this hotel. I was very impressed with the level of service and comfort this hotel provides. I was most impressed with the restaurant Prime and my room had excellent views over the city itself even if there was a construction site right next door! In short, i would highly recommend this hotel.

Overall, this is a great place to stay. I was in Doha for a 5 night business trip and booked an executive floor / club room. My room was perfect! Enormous but very nicely appointed with a fabulous sitting room. The bed was absolutely perfect. Fabulous linen, great pillows and a wonderful duvet. I could hardly face leaving it! The bathrooms are great and very well appointed. Everything about my room and bathroom was great apart from the fact that it took ages to get any hot water to the bath or shower.

I would recommend the Club floor as the lounge is fantastic. The staff, especially Miriam, are amazingly helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The food and beverage offerings are great.

The gym is perfect and very well equipped for a hotel gym.

The only things I wouldn't recommend in this hotel is terrible top floor bar. It's sleazy, grubby, smokey and really down market. Don't go! Also the spa / hair dressers is a real disappointment. It's completely unmanaged and I felt quite anxious having a simple hair cut there!

Room Tip: Book on the Club floor.
