THe "W" is one one of the nicer hotels in Doha. It has several places to eat, two great places to have a drink and relax and the servvice is outstanding. The residences are very modern and well maintained but they are on the small side compared to some of the other units available in West Bay. My chief complaint is that they offer a good entertainment system with TV, movies and music. Unfortunately, most of the TV channel are Arabic. They lack Fox News & ESPN and other channels that mst Americans are familiar with. It is unfortunate since many are available from the Sat TV companies.
Also, the little kitchens are barely adequate for long term stay. On a 2 burner steve, no oven and a dorm size frig. You can find better set ups at most of their competition like Courtyard Marriott & Intercontinental the City.
Another big minus for me is that they really gouge on laundry service - about 400% over cost. You can walk one block to the City Center Mall and give your laundry to the Sheraton Laundry and save about 60% on the W price and get the same service that W uses.
On the positive side, the views from the rooms on the north side of the building are fantasic. You can see all the way to the Pearl from the living room wall of glass. The Starwood points are also a great perk.
