 Marriott has opened the three-hotel Doha City Center complex which includes the 257-room Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel, 204-room Courtyard by Marriott Doha City Center and 123-unit Marriott Executive Apartments Doha City Center.

All three hotels are located in two modern 48-storey towers, located in West Bay across from Qatar Financial Centre, on the doorstep of the new business district of Doha and 15 minutes from Doha International Airport.

Although each hotel has its own look and feel, they share floors 1-7 featuring three lobbies, nine restaurants and bars, 1200 square meters of meeting space, a Vitality Zone health club and Marriott’s signature Saray Spa featuring traditional Middle Eastern treatments and products.

“The opening of the three hotels is a major step forward in reinforcing Doha’s futuristic vision and surging tourism potential in Qatar,” said Ed Fuller, president and managing director, Marriott International. “These three new hotels give us six properties in the country, which is fast becoming a key business and leisure destination in the Middle East.”
