I travel to Doha regularly and my first choice is the St. Regis Doha. The hotel has fabulous facilities and attentive staff in all hotel operations who unobtrusively ensure the best possible guest experience. The stay begins with arrival in the stately lobby where the valet will take your car if necessary after you are assisted out of the vehicle; your luggage is taken directly your room by the bell staff while you are checking in. The check-in is quick, slowed only by Qatar requirements to validate your visa status. Once you are checked in, you get taken to a well appointed suite with a distinctly Arabic feel that is comfortable for anyone. I generally prefer the rooms with a terrace, except during shamal seasons or the heat of summer, because few things are nicer than dining on a private terrace.
The days are easily spent at the hotel at the delightful 50m pool, the spa, or the gym. The pool is really a great place to spend a hot day with the floating bean bags, or in a shaded sun chair. They are conveniently located on West Bay so you an also swim in the Arabian gulf - or just enjoy a beverage from the beach bar. Some evening there are special events on the beach with live music and a good crowd of both guests and locals (mostly expats).
The spa deserves a visit! The staff are very skilled and professional in all interactions - a relaxing massage goes a long way, especially after a day exploring the Doha area.
Meals are all excellent and every visit I am torn between the in-room dining or the restaurants on site; each has different advantages but all are excellent.
The absolute best part of the St Regis is what I left to last: Jazz at Lincoln Center. This is the jazz club at the hotel that is truly 5-star for musicians, beverages, and service. Every visit to the jazz club brings a musical surprise with some incredible musicians who are usually from the USA.
