European-born brand, Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts, has today debuted its first Qatar hotel as Le Royal Méridien Doha welcomes its first guests – expanding the list of exclusive 5-star hotels in Qatar available at affordable prices.
Located in the heart of the country’s future city, Lusail, the 377-room hotel is the latest in Qatar’s efforts to add over 100 new hotels and serviced apartments to its already extensive portfolio of properties – as the country gears up to host the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.
Featuring striking neo-classical architecture, Le Royal Méridien Doha seamlessly connects to Place Vendôme Qatar, an iconic Parisian-inspired luxury complex home to 580 retail outlets, fine dining experiences, theatres, office and residential spaces, and more. With expansive waterfront views of Lusail, the hotel is an illuminating getaway for creative-minded travellers looking to discover Qatar’s newest city that combines true modernity with the richness of Qatari traditions.
The hotel features 240 thoughtfully designed guest rooms including 53 suites offering sea or city views, as well as 137 residences including studios, and one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. With easy access from the airport or the city centre by limousine, taxi, metro or ferry, the hotel is an ideal destination for culture seekers to discover Qatar. Le Royal Méridien Doha is a 15-minute drive from downtown Doha, a 12-minute drive to Doha Exhibition and Conference Centre and offers metro and bus links to the surrounding Entertainment City and is the closest hotel to Lusail Stadium.
The 5-star hotel follows closely from several new openings in Qatar, including Zulal Wellness Resort and Banyan Tree Doha.
Rooms start from £172 (794 QAR) per night based on a two person stay.
