We were staying at the Intercontinental for 3 nights. The hotel building is rather old and not very modern, especially if you compare to the much bigger building behind the hotel. From the beach in front of the hotel you have a great view of the city center with quite an outstanding skyline. Unfortunately most of the rooms do not have this view. We were staying in a presidential suite with access to the club lounge. While the room was huge in size, it seemed to be a little outdated and in need for a renovation. The bed was very comfortable, but really annoying is the smoke detector that continuously flashes with a bright light, right over the bed.
The service is very good in general. We were annoyed a little by the transfer service person from the airport to the hotel, as he complained that he had too wait too long for us (not our fault given the immigration hassle). Not a very good start. Elsewhere the service was excellent, especially also in the club lounge. The breakfast served in the club lounge was great.
Outstanding food in the Coral Restaurant! The quality and size of the dinner buffet is hard to beat.
The pool and garden is very nice, but there is one big minus. The pool is either not heated at all or was just too cold. Even our two kids did not manage to be more than 10 minutes in the pool.
All in all a nice stay, but we would probably go to a more modern hotel in Doha next time.
