W Doha Hotel & Residences

W is Starwood’s lifestyle hotel brand with a focus on great design. When you research W hotels around the internet, it’s easy to see they are strongest in Asia. After fantastic stays in Seoul and Maldives before I went into W Doha with high expectations.

Being a Starwood Preferred Guest Platinum member, I got upgraded to a W Suite, and it was very special and different. It had a modern luxury design and a hanging swing chair which I’ve never seen in a room before. Very nice feature. It also had two 46″ inch IP Tv’s, great W signature bed and a nice bathroom. Total of 107 square metres.

The service was surprisingly good. With 445 rooms I know it’s hard to deliver personalised service, but I did not feel like a number. Of course, service is better and more personalised in smaller hotels, but they did a really good job. The facilities is really good and so is the spa where I had a treatment.

What many people are looking for in hotels is to get the local touches. W Doha does it with the breakfast. It’s very local with a lot of Arabic dishes.

Overall a really great design experience combined with good service. Very comfortable and nice hotel I would love to return to again and again.

My opinion: Great experience.
