This brand-new hotel has a lot going for it. In addition to being located near a lovely park stretching along the waterfront, the hotel also offers regular shuttles to the Corniche beaches and the Marina Mall.
The rooms are well equipped and comfortable, although a bit 'masculine' and businessy in design. But they are stocked with great Lanvin toiletries. As mentioned elsewhere, the beds are amazingly comfortable.
Every afternoon they have a man in traditional costume standing in the lobby offering guests and visitors alike fantastic coffee with cardamon, rosewater and saffron, and a plate of dates — a local specialty.
The staff is friendly, attentive and prompt, and the breakfast buffet is really spectacular.
The only downside — and it is a minor one — is that there is no in-room iron and the one housekeeping delivers is a pretty chintzy affair.

Each of the rooms offer breathtaking views over city and Arabian Gulf. Additionally, the hotel offers 3 signature restaurants and 3 bars, a pool, a spa and wellness space and 9 meeting rooms.
