After arriving at Doha airport we noticed a sign for the Crown Plaza and asked about a transfer, there was one in 5 minutes and complimentary! Excellent! The hotel is about 5 minutes away (longer if traffic is bad) and it's located in a small, modern business park. Check in was painless and we were delighted to be told that because of status, we had been given an upgrade to the 'Diplomatic Suite'
The room itself was enormous. Two bedrooms, three bathrooms it was nearly twice the size of my apartment at home! I believe this room was in the longer stay section so had a large dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The bathrooms were clean and featured brilliant 'rain showers' and fluffy towels and good products. Literally the only thing I could nitpick about is that the sofas in the room are perhaps not that comfortable but it's obviously a really minor point. The hotel has a very modern and contemporary appearance and is just the kind of hotel that makes an irritating stopover, totally worth it. We didn't bother with breakfast but we did order room service which was great and very quick.
The location is good. Without a car and with little time, our options were limited but a stroll down to the Souks and the harbour overlooking the skyscrapers was extremely pleasant. Great service from the friendly and attentive staff. A good choice for a stopover.
