It’s not always easy to find a good centrally-located hotel; one which has great accommodation, excellent dining options and is within reach of all the main city hotspots, however, there is one such place that potentially ticks all these boxes. We went to stay at Marriott Marquis City Centre Doha and here’s the verdict…
When we arrived at Marriott Marquis City Centre Doha, we were welcomed by friendly front desk and concierge staff who went out of their way to make us comfortable. We had used the new Marriott Mobile App to check-in so the process of getting our room key was all the more quick and simple! Marriott Marquis City Centre Doha combines luxury and practicality, making it the perfect choice for both business and leisure travellers. The hotel boasts modern interiors, it’s super clean and comfortable, and the beds are some of the best we’ve ever slept on. There are fantastic facilities for all, the kind you’d expect to find at any beautiful high-rise – we were impressed.
The room types at Marriott Marquis City Centre Doha are plenty – from Deluxe, to Superior, and a number of suite options, all decorated in contemporary furnishings and modern colours, there’s accommodation to suit every kind of traveller – solo, couples, families, friends. We were staying in an Executive Room, which had the most stunning views overlooking the city and the sea (it’s especially beautiful at sunset). For us, it was the great size of the room and the added services that your get, that made it so special. Now, for those who appreciate the finer things at hotels, there’s the linen – now, this IS luxury. We had some of the best night’s sleep during our stay! This room features Executive Lounge access from 6am to midnight, offering hot buffet breakfast, midday snack, afternoon tea,horsd’oeuvres, dessert, late night snacks, complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, complimentary pressing, and complimentary happy hour from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. There’s even two hours of complimentary use of the private meeting rooms. Choosing this room type would be perfect for business visitors, and those who are their on a leisure trip would benefit from the extra room space and complimentary food and drinks – a bonus if you want a lazy, relaxing day in the hotel.
Anyone who is familiar with Marriot Marquis City Centre Doha will know that the hotel is extremely popular with the local and expatriate community for its food outlets. From Brazilian to Italian, International, Middle Eastern and so much more, Doha’s diners flock to enjoy some of the most delicious food in the city. Our favourite part of the dining experience here had to be breakfast at Quick Bites and dinner at the beautiful New York Steakhouse. The restaurant itself has elegant interiors with mood lighting; the staff are incredibly helpful, and the food, simply delicious. Try the Alaskan King Crab Cakes – light and fresh to start with; for mains we went for the 250g Prime USA Fillet Mignon, cooked medium and served with grilled asparagus and butter mash – just divine. For dessert we went for the Pyramid of Passion fruit and Lychees – it was beautifully presented and tasted just exquisite. From start to finish, the whole meal was flawless!
Not only does Marriot Marquis have a fantastic pool area, it also boasts a great relaxation facility – Saray Spa. We really enjoyed the option of having a completely tranquil space to relax in, right in the heart of the city. Amidst the crazy rush and bustle of the City Centre – this place is blissful. You can choose from an array of treatments, ranging from body scrubs and wraps, massages, facials, paraffin treatments, skin refining, hammam rituals and so much more. As a guest, you can make use of the facilities indoors and outdoors at leisure – we’d recommend spending a day, topping up that tan by the pool and finishing off in the hammam!
We love that Marriott Marquis City Centre Doha benefits from, not only, a fantastic location, but goes above and beyond to provide guests with a fuller holiday experience in the heart of a busy city. Shopping malls, historical attractions, and all the must-visit spots are either a short walk or taxi ride away. Simply a perfect choice for your stay in Doha!
