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
I have been part of a team of athletes during the World Championship 2019. I have been staying in hotels all over the wolrd, but this one has won my heart. Staff go out of their way to help. The restaurant on floor 2, the Sridan, is excellent. Everyday with every meal we were surrounded with friendly faces. The cleaning staff at your room goes the extra mile to see that you have everything you need in your room, and the laundry services is fantastic. Thank you again!

We had a 10 hour layover in Doha and decided to spend it by the pool at the JW Marriott. Here we were able to buy a pool pass so we could properly relax, shower and hang out. We also decided to have breakfast at the restaurant and it was a superb experience. The restaurant Irma was a dream, so kind and sweet and super attentive. Another colleague (who works the juice bar) came over and made us green juices. We were very impressed. I would highly recommend this place. We felt so welcome, best 10 hours spent in Doha!
