ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC HOTELS IN DOHA’ S WEST BAY AREA,INTERCONTINENTAL DOHA THE CITY TAKES THE MEANING OF MODERN LIVING TO NEW HEIGHTS. FACT STAYED AT THE CITY CENTRE PROPERTY AND FOUND MANY REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD MAKE THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE YOUR NEXT STAYCATION SPOT.
It’s hard not to say “wow” when you first see the impressive structure of InterContinental Doha The City. It’s contemporary, sleek and completely stands out from other buildings in the area. The lobby atrium is the first thing you’ll want to post on instagram, followed by the stunning suites and (when you want to relax) the openair rooftop pool. After a smooth check-in process – there’s a special desk for IHG members to – we whizz up to our suite on the 47th floor.
Views are incredible and go on for miles – in fact, we stand and stare out of the windows for some time before exploring the rest of this apartment-style room. What we really loved is the ample closet and storage space – there are enough hangers for all your clothes, places to pop your suitcase out of the way and all your in-room wants like shoe shine, safe, iron and ironing board, and lovely robes and slippers. As you’d expect with a suite, this sanctuary above the city is split into two areas – a large living room with cushy seating, a coffee table, work desk, television and all your tea/coffee, snacks and yummy amenities. THIS is the side to put up your feet and relax with a cuppa, or get comfy with your laptop to catch up on work. A short walkway separates the living area from a gorgeous bedroom space.With a HUGE bed, mood lighting and a desk – you’re going to get some of the best sleeps! The bathroom is a novelty in itself; practical, spacious and with every amenity you could wish for. The deep bathtub is the ideal place for a soak after a long day of discovering Doha, whilst the shower is big enough to twirl in! There’s no skimping on toiletries and housekeeping are generous with replacing even half-used bottles, daily.
The overall feeling is of the utmost comfort and privacy. It’s quiet, clean, contemporary and REALLY feels like being at home – but with the added benefit of luxury hotel services – and who doesn’t love that? To top that off, suites range from one to four bedrooms, so whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple or with the family, there are plenty of options to make your stay awesome. Depending on the room type you choose, guests can have take advantage of access to the exclusive Club InterContinental Lounge on level 45, with an east-facing view of West Bay (more insta-worthy shots to make your followers envious).
For a hotel that is frequented by both business and leisure travellers, InterContinental Doha The City is bursting with excellent dining options. From Pan Asian goodies to afternoon tea delights, international fare, a chill-out shisha garden, casual lounges and the city’s highest award-winning restaurant cumlounge, Strata, the options are endless. Being the dedicated meat lovers that we are, it was Prime – the hotel’s famous steakhouse – that called out to our cravings. An elegant venue where you can choose from various seating options to create a personalised dining experience, the restaurant is relaxed yet sophisticated with plush, bold interiors.
You can also opt to sit where all the kitchen action can be viewed! Serving up the finest selection of cuts, Prime has an exquisite menu made up of everything from tenderloin to ribeye, filet mignon and meats from the USA, Australia and the rich Wagyu too. We’d highly recommend going with friends and each person ordering a different cut to be shared – they’re all just TOO tasty. A massive standout for us included the juicy Wagyu steak and the mouth-watering sides, including the creamy mash potato, sautéed spinach, and perfectly cooked asparagus. After all, a good steak is nothing without its accompaniments – and Prime gets this just RIGHT. Dessert is just as delectable with everything chocolate-infused ticking our sweet tooth box! Most of all, it’s the culinary knowledge and service of the friendly staff that made dinner at Prime SO memorable.
