“very good but a few thungs need sorting”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Beautiful beach and pool area, fantastic club room, helpful professional staff. A little way out of town. Not sure sure if facilities will seem as good when the hotel extension is completed as it seems to be very big. But I have questions for the management. Why when we sat down for a drink in a bar were we offered a very extensive alcoholic drinks menu, when we had made our choices the server then said they had not been allowed to serve alcohol in that bar since last October , so why in June are they still giving out this menu. Why in the room is there a small flyer suggesting a 5km jogging route which when you try to follow it is totally blocked by a construction site. Why were we only given the flyer about the hotels shuttle service as my husband enquired about arranging a car back to the airport. Surely this information could have been put in each room. It certainly would have meant we could have made better use of our time in Doha . The hotel very kindly brought us a cake and beautiful fruit basket as it was our wedding anniversary, at 20 past midnight on the evening we checked in. We had a small taste of the cake and a few grapes due to the late hour. When we returned from the beach late morning next day planning on eating our cake with some fruit , it had all been taken away. Just hope a staff member enjoyed the cake and fruit rather than bin it. Oh yes when we arrived the bath was full of cold water and countless rose petals, but the room staff did not clear this up in the morning in fact the bath was still like this when we left. Luckily we prefer to use the shower. So yes lots of good points but the information being given to guests needs to be examined and please give the guests a chance to enjoy their complimentary cakes and fruit. Overall enjoyed the stay but felt we could have enjoyed it more. Oh yes and a cork screw in the mini bar to open the wine would have been really useful.

Room Tip: Club rooms well worth the extra money. There are construction sites on both side of this hotel but b...

I am often in Doha for work and have never had a reason to stay anywhere else but at the old Intercontinental. The rooms are very spacious and there are numerous bars/restaurant options. Choices are always better than no choices...
The staff is always on top of their game, paperwork filled out prior to your arrival, and so so friendly. Probably the best thing about the hotel however is the amazing breakfast. I get up early just to sample the fresh fruit and all the great juices and well everything. Just makes my morning.

I'm currently visiting Doha on a business mission and it is my first time at their intercontinental, West Bay. Staff is very welcoming and smiling. Very professional and paying proper attention to all details.
My room was ready as requested on my arrival. Very clean and neat. Defiantly recommend.

Note: Ask for Ms. Silvia at the reception area. She is a great help!

Always stay here in Doha every three months or so. Staff and rooms are on the money. Very attentive, happy & genuine.

I eat in the Belgian Bar Cafe, which suits me as steaks are good with great beer and sports on TV. One thing I always do and is a top tip, book the club room. For about $75 per day you get snacks and a great breakfast. Coffee is unlimited. May not seem a big deal, but is about $8-10 a cup by the pool as is coke.

My stay at InterContinental was a superb one. Their staff is incredible service orientated and nothing is too much to make you feel a special guest. The gym and the pool are amazing and again surrounded by an incredible staff. The restaurants provide you with delicous food and nice wines. I loved the Friday Brunch with a buffet of high quality and a relaxed atmosphere
