InterContinental Doha The City
Ranked #9 of 138 Hotels in Doha
Reviewed June 24, 2013

As a lover of afternoon teas and having sampled several in Doha, I expected this Hotel to give a great service and experience like many others. However, it was sadly lacking on all counts. The small selection of sandwiches and cakes were tasty enough, however, not a patch on either the Four Seasons or St Regis where everything you are eating and drinking is explained at great lengths which enhances the enjoyment but sadly even the staff seemed unsure of what they were serving. Eating at this hotel can be a bit of a hit or miss, sometimes good service other times forget it.

Dear SportyGirl,
thank you for checking out our High Tea and how unfortunate you did enjoy the food, but we somehow came in short. We have taken your feedback to our next Food&Beverage focus group to discuss how to make the usually popular High Tea even better! Thank you for sharing and hoping to see you back one day soon to check on us!
Best wishes from the InterContinental Doha The City!

Great location in the DQ location with the bonus of water views and the potential for a high floor outlook. There are 2 entrances which can be a bit tricky thus 2 receptions, we stayed on the executive floors which were great well worth the extra charge. The rooms are spacious and the lounge is the width of the building with lots of comfy spaces and an inviting buffet. The afternoon tea was a personal favourite. Staff are easy with their smiles and nothing seems to be too much trouble. I did expect there to be a DVD player but did not find one.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the executive lounge and ask for a water view.

Dear SaudiArabia,
thank you for your praise! We do have a selection of DVDs for rent in the Club Lounge and our suites are equipped with DVD players. It is however not a bad idea to possibly having some players for hire. We will check on the possibility to connect them to the IP TV system, which can be tricky.
Looking forward seeing you back to enjoy the InterContinental Doha The City Experience in Qatars highest 5 Star hotel with probably some of the most stunning views!

I've stayed at this hotel twice now, and really enjoyed it both times. It's very much business hotel, but on the last trip with my wife and daughter it was still great fun. It's in a very good location, quick to the airport, walking distance from the Corniche and the City Centre mall (with its taxi rank), and quick to get across to Katara, the Pearl etc. The pool is for a quick dip rather than lounging around and you have to be careful to get in the right lift for your floor, but they are the only minor niggles. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Always ask taxi drivers for 'Intercontinental - new one near city centre mall' to avoid goin...

I spent the weekend here and it was worth every penny! Maya at the Club Lounge is the epitome of what superb customer service should look like. An asset to your team. Thank you to all the staff.

A little something you can work on though is: ensure customers are not billed for mini bar items they haven't had.

I had heard great reviews of this hotel and was not disappointed. Things are a bit more expensive than the norm, but the experience is well above average. One point - this is really for a business trip rather than a family vacation.

Having said that, the spacious rooms are superbly luxurious, excellent beds, superb design and decor, the food is magnificent and the service is exemplary. Let me say again - the food was ABSOLUTELY magnificent. I stayed for three days and the themed dinner buffets were really special in menu choices, execution, flavours and culinary excellence.

Spent one night at this hotel - great rooms, great staff and great breakfast!

We really enjoyed their steakhouse! The service was awesome along with the food!

Rooms are spacious and easy to get to even though we had to switch elevators.
