Airport Hotel at HIA Launches 12-Hour Advance Baggage Drop

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 21 January 2015

Passengers travelling with Qatar Airways now have the option of checking-in their luggage at Hamad International Airport's Airport Hotel up to 12 hours prior to their flight departure.

The service will be especially useful to those with an early morning departure, as it gives Qatar Airways passengers who have a pre-paid and non-refundable reservation at The Airport Hotel the opportunity to check in the night before, have dinner at one of HIAs sophisticated dining outlets such as Soprafino or Grand Comptoir, and spend the night at the hotel knowing they do not have to wake up hours before their departure.

The Airport Hotel guests can also enjoy the luxury of a dedicated Qatar Airways counter located in the check-in hall where they can drop off their luggage in a more relaxed environment.

The Airport Hotel General Manager, Philippe Anric, said, We look forward to welcoming Qatar Airways passengers, who can now check-in baggage up to 12 hours prior to their departure when they have a confirmed reservation at The Airport Hotel in Hamad International Airport. We always go the extra mile to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable, and the availability of an early luggage drop will only add a further level of comfort and flexibility to their experience of staying with us at Hamad International Airport. 

Guests are invited to choose from superior, deluxe and executive rooms or executive suites, which can be booked for 0-4, 4-8, 8-12 or 12-24 hours, giving them the opportunity to rest in between flights or to use the room as a base while they discover the boutiques and restaurants spread over 40,000m2 at HIA.

Hotel guests can enjoy more than 70 retail outlets offering a wide selection of designer labels, high street fashion, electronics and gourmet foods, as well as over 30 cafs and restaurants offering a sumptuous selection of global cuisine with something to suit everyones palate.

Guests (as well as non-staying guests) can also take advantage of the services provided at The Vitality Spa, which includes a 25-metre swimming pool, full-service gym equipped with cardiovascular machines and two squash courts. Passengers can also choose from a wide variety of treatments at The Vitality Spa, which have been specially designed to relieve the fatigue of travelling. There are three treatment rooms for men and two for women. A hydrotherapy bath is also available in both the male and female spa areas.
