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
Clean, comfortable hotel with great food. I was able to attend the 42nd floor happy hour and enjoy my evenings. The team around Leman, MC, Angelo, Kemol, Stacey and Lumi made the stay with great service and friendly atmosphere very much enjoyable.
My recent stay at the Shangri-La Hotel doha was amazing , it is a fantastic hotel in the heart of the city . The staffs were so friendly , I would like to thank the staffs for making my stay a wonderful one with lots of memories to cherish specially service staffs naming luminarti , kamol , ramy were so kind and caring peoples, and a special notation to the chef Arun in the lounge very kind n generous , made our day with wonderful foods in the morning ,He know what i like and give every client special experience .
Room were very spacious and comfortable had a great view of outside and throughout our stay there it was great and satisfying experience .
Top to bottom a wonderful hotel with a couple of exceptions. First, the positives: the Horizon Club is worth the additional expense. Excellent service, good food, amazing views. Quiet and comfortable. Although I will say that as a woman, I had a slightly harder time getting the attention of the attendants who were sometime busy flirting with the businessmen in the lounge.
My room I can’t objectively speak to because I was upgraded to the most insanely comfortable suite I’ve ever experienced. Bigger than my first apartment. But the best part was the linens which I assume are hotel wide.
Now the not-so-positive: the hotel has tremendous trouble getting their wireless payment devices to accept mine and my colleague’s corporate cards although the bank confirmed no issue on their end and I subsequently used my card with no problem in Beijing a few days later. They need to figure that out if they are going to continue to support an international clientele.
All in all: highly recommend.
We began our trip to the Middle East in Doha as we have friends living there. We made a great decision to stay at the Shangri-La as they looked after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was amazing and the staff friendly. A special thank you to Luminarti and Angelo in Horizon Club for their helpfulness.
The hotel is very well located. The rooms are large with a stunning view of the city skyline, a great outdoor pool, serene spa and excellent assistance by the concierge. the stop over package (24 hours check out, free airport transfer, wi fi and breakfast) is particularly useful for a short visit. The hotel is connected to a huge shopping mall.
