I've stayed in the Doha Marriott and this hotel. In terms of the actual hotel and rooms, this hotel is much nicer. It's gorgeous (a bit garish, yes, but not over the top) and the rooms are absolutely first rate. However, I missed being on the beach, and the location isn't particular good. I did find the managers to be a bit difficult, but otherwise the service was fine. I only had breakfast here at the buffet, and it was outstanding. Make sure you check out the gorgeous cake/pastry shop in the hotel - it is worth a visit. The pool is very nice also. Some people have complained about noise, but I heard nothing during my 4-night stay. However, the first night, I smelled a nasty incense all night long. I think a guest in a nearby room was burning it because it didn't return after the first night.
