W Doha Hotel & Residences
Ranked #1 of 138 Hotels in Doha
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 March 2014

After a couple of stays the W continues to stisfy with top notch service and style ... and you feel hip as well with the incessant backdrop of soft dance music. Despite being very busy with a diverse crowd partially clad in uniform for the Defense Exhibition, and despite traffic derailed by rain, service remained prompt and impeccable. The hotel is now a couple of years old and starts to show the first minor traces of wear and tear, but overall still top notch.

This time we found out that if you are upgraded to club level (two out of our party of three were for seemingly arbitrary reasons, perhaps SPG status) there is a great breakfast (6-8am) and evening buffet including alcoholic drinks (6-7pm) for free in the Crystal lounge on the Mezzanine level - literally worth it!

Good to mention they have some of the best restaurants in Doha on board. Their transportation service which we used extensively is reliable and safe, although it comes at a price.

The pool is not much, but at least you can sit outside, get wet and there is a bar. The sun appears only later in the morning on the deck and goes down behind a building at about 4pm in this season.

We stayed at the W hotel for 2 nights in March 2014. It is my 2nd time here (I stayed here when it just opened) and it is just as wonderfully magical as I remembered from the first time. Upon arrival Mr. Guram made us feel extremely welcome and even gave us complimentary internet for our stay which was such a nice touch and gesture which we will never forget! During our stay he was very helpful with amazing tips about getting around the city of Doha. Then Mr. Merabi took us to our beautiful room, and he also made us feel like very special guests with his kindness, hospitality and friendliness. He showed us how to use everything in the room and answered all our questions!
So a very warm thank you to both of you for your warm hospitality!
As for the room, it is one of the most beautiful rooms we have stayed in. The colors, decor and ambience are simply stunning.The beds are so comfortable and the overall feeling you get from being in this hotel is a feeling of serenity and tranquility. When you enter the room you could just stay in there for days of relaxation! We hope to be back soon!

Spent four nights in March and was pleased with stay. Good location only 5 minutes from city centre mall. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Espresso machine is nice touch along with iPod docking station. Plenty of complimentary water which is good to keep you hydrated. Staff are friendly and good emphasis on customer service. I'd say the hotel gears more towards the trendy party going guests as the night club is a big draw for non hotel guests, however you get a peaceful nights sleep and there is no sound disturbance at all. Beds are clean comfy so you will have a good sleep. Bathroom facilities are real good, lovely rain shower separate from big deep bath complimented by fresh smelling amenities. Didn't get a chance to taste the variety of chocolate sweets from the in house shop/cafe however looked lovely.

Room Tip: Next to the wow suite high floor as you can just catch part of the water to your right.

The positives: luxurious in terms of lobby, restaurants (breakfast in the Jean George Restaurant was one of the better breakfasts that you can have in a mass hotel), rooms (especially bed), executive lounge, spa, pool and gym. The negatives: loud (when you arrive at night in the lobby you think that you are at Grand Central NYC), dark (It is a hotel for vampires basically in the evening. I have poor evening vision and could barely get around.) and spotty service (no twin room despite it being what I reserved originally, confusion during check-in). The front desk manager was kind to accommodate us for the reservation error by extending our stay to 6 pm which was quite kind. Would I stay here again for pleasure? Probably not. I would try another hotel. I am not into chains but decided to try W. I was not impressed especially for over $500 per night.

Hello Marco P,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review W Doha Hotel & Residences, I was glad to hear that you enjoyed our restaurants, breakfast at Market, our rooms, Bliss Spa and FIT and the WIP lounge. I was however disappointed to hear that you did not fully enjoy your experience with us with regards to the night setting of the hotel and the confusion during check-in. I would like to discuss your experience further, if you could please email me back at hasan.saad@whotels.com.

I'm looking forward to your email, and hope that we can get a chance to welcome you back again to W Doha.

All the best,

I spent 6 weeks in an apartment in the hotel, and the only thing I could fault was the tv signal was not good. The rooms were modern, clean and very spactous with all the ammenities you could want.

When I used the dining facilities the food was excellent, but a little expensive - as you would expect in a 5 start hotel.

All in, I would recommend the appartments if you intend on staying in Doha for a while.

Just a few words of appreciation for the staff who work at the Wahm Bar at the W Hotel in Doha. This bar has the potential to be labelled as pretentious due to its appearance and prices, however the very down to earth and ever-helpful staff make this place one of the best, if not the best bar in town. Couple this with generous Happy Hour prices and timings and you can understand why it is so popular. Particular mention should go to Alex and Jacob, two happy and friendly members of staff who always have a warm welcome and high standard of service waiting for you. Thank you guys - Ben.
