The Shangri-La brand’s first hotel in Qatar is a luxe high-rise that offers stunning views of Doha’s futuristic skyline. From the opulent lobby, which features marble columns and a glittering chandelier, to the seven drinking and dining options, this 272-room property offers all the hallmarks you’d expect from these experts in high-end hospitality. Starting at 500 square feet, the guestrooms are some of the largest in the city, and they feature free WiFi, 47-inch TVs, tea- and coffeemaking facilities, pillow menus and signature Shangri-La beds that use body contouring technology. Kick back by the pool (be sure to take advantage of the swim-up bar) or indulge in a treatment at CHI, The Spa. The dining options include Fuego for Argentine steaks and South American wines, Sridan for Middle Eastern specialties served at food stations modeled on an Arabian souk, and Yabby for seafood from the Arabian Gulf. Enjoy a nightcap at The Den, a wood-paneled piano bar, or head up to the hotel’s top floors to dance and drink at the Shanghai Club.
In the Area
The hotel is located between the City Center Mall (including direct links) and the Convention Center, a 20-minute drive from the airport and a short drive from top sights, including the Grand Mosque and Dhow Harbor. Check out the Museum of Islamic Art, the Al Koot Fort and the artificial island, the Pearl. Pick up souveniors at Souq Waqif, which translates as “standing market,” or head to the Gold Souk to shop for jewels.
How to Get There
First and foremost a wonderful thank you to Alicia in the beautiful Shanghai Club restaurant. Her and her team epitomise truly great service.
Personable, friendly and just a truly magnificent dining experience.
Well done all.
We travelled as four families. The hotel handled our individual needs perfectly. We were met at the airport and transferred to the hotel. The hotel allows any time check in which suited us as we arrived st midnight. Breakfast provided a great choice of well prepared food. The hotel opens into a shopping mall which is very convenient. A great place to stay.
MrAbdalla, Miss Rara, Mr JJ- so decietful and unkind. Lied to yus about how much money we put down for deposit!!! I couldn't believe what I was hearing. When the staff member who collected the deposit admitted his wrong doing they still charged us despite their error!!! Never again. Worst!
I thought Radisson was really good but then I stayed at the Shangri-la and it's GRAND. The stay was by far the best I have been in Doha. The rooms don't feel like standard rectangle with most of the space occupied by furniture. Instead there is a large enough vacant area in the middle of the room. The view is amazing and I believe it keeps getting better as you go higher in the building.
The rooms are very spacious, clean and Grand.
Food at the Sridan is too good.
All staff members were very polite and friendly, especially at Sridan.
WiFi is free and fast. The minibar is kept empty till you ask the hotel to refill it.
The hotel is attached with the City Center at the 2nd level. How amazing is that. With the kind of summer this country has, I think its nice to be able to walk into city center without even stepping out.
İ liked to stay at this hotel. Nice and calm. Good breakfast , good stuff. It is close to Doha exhibition center by walking distance. Clean hotel. Nice chocolates as compliements. Close to city centre shopping mall. You can pass to shopping mall through second level of hotel.
