Last year whilst in Doha on business, I stayed at the Wyndam Grand and was not complimentary.
Basically, it is a dry hotel. Its check in procedures were bizarre and there were room problems. Well, maybe I was a bit harsh, or maybe a year can dull your memories because this time in Doha, staying at the Grand Qatar Palace, the Wyhdam seems wonderful.
In a nutshell, in Doha, you want a drink right? Not at the GQP. Like a toilet the flushes right? Not at the GQP. Expect the toilet to be fixed after a very courteous complaint right? Not on your life! Instead I got a scrawled note left on the toilet that it presumably is my fault because I dared use toilet paper! ( see photo). Guess what, the toilet still does not flush.
You know those sweets most hotels have at reception? Don't try these at the GQP. They are not real and you could end up in hospital having swallowed a glass imitation sweet! Think I'm kidding right? I wish. When I asked the girl at reception, she said they were there for decoration purposes!
The GQP is right opposite a petrol station so I guess if you need to fill up, this place is convenient.
Oh did I mention the all-night noise in the ceiling? I didn't? How would you liked to have a serenade of equipment being moved around until late and then first thing at 5:30am? Nice touch!
Oh and the electronic safe did not work. When I rang And asked, they told me yes it did not work but don't worry nobody will come into your room. Very reassuring.
