W Doha Hotel & Residences

Celebrity-worthy luxury in the heart of Doha
VERIFIED LUXURY

From the Instagrammable blue-lantern-strewn lobby to the pop-art-style funky and colorful rooms, a stay at W Doha Hotel and Residences is an immersive experience from start to finish.

Whimsical and fun, W Doha prides itself on its individual attention to detail, which is evident the moment you set foot in the jaw-dropping lobby.

Opened in 2012, the stylish hotel continues to impress with its glamorous W amenities (luxe king sized beds), quirky touches (board games in each room) and its sumptuous Bliss spa.

Three luxurious dining venues, including two outposts from celebrity chef Jean-George Vongerichten, and two of the hottest nightspots in the city round out this show-stopping Doha stay.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Living up to its “Whatever, Whenever” ethos, W Doha is a service-oriented hotel – staff swarms the lobby to ensure that help is never far away.
  • The in-house Bliss Spa is an urban oasis thanks to a range of muscle-soothing treatments, a cocoon-like interior and a complimentary brownie buffet.
  • Book a Marvelous room category or above to enjoy access to the Executive WIP lounge (W Important Person), the Doha hotel’s version of a club floor, offering breakfast, snacks and even a white grand piano.
  • The property’s West Bay location gives you easy access to the city and its main tourist sights, though you won’t need to leave the Doha hotel to find a great bite. Three restaurants, three lounges and the plush Living Room provide signature sips and delicious fare almost any time of day.
  • The hotel has converted its 29th floor into a gallery space called Art 29, hosting regular exhibitions by local and international artists as well as a pop-up café.

Things to Know

  • With a luxe nightclub and bar, W Doha is one of the most popular hotels in the city, especially on weekend evenings. As a result, the lobby can become a bit of a zoo, so request a room on a higher floor for some necessary quiet.
  • The pool area may be Miami-esque but it’s small and surrounded by towering buildings, so sunlight, especially in the winter months, can be limited.
  • The hip hotel was originally meant to be an office building, so the hallways can feel a little dark and claustrophobic.
  • If you plan to visit W Doha’s Crystal Lounge nightclub (check out the Baccarat chandelier) or Wahm bar, bring your passport or ID – local rules are strictly enforced.
  • As it ramps up for the 2022 World Cup, Doha is very much a city in progress. The surrounding West Bay area has some new towers and projects still under construction, so expect some delays, noise and not-so-perfect views.

The Rooms

  • Even the entry-level Spectacular Rooms offer a generous 473 square feet while the largest accommodation, the Extreme Wow Suite, tops out at a decadent 3,260 square feet.
  • The Extreme Wow Suite comes with its own aquarium, fully stocked bar and a pool table.
  • Bliss Sinkside Six bath products can be found in all accommodations. These pint-sized amenities promise to give you a spa experience without having to book one.
  • Our pick of the rooms is the Cool Corner Suite, which provides floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of the city’s futuristic skyline.
  • Bathrooms come fitted with a full bath and rainfall shower. Some suites have TVs installed in the mirrors.

The Restaurants

  • All-day dining spot Market by Jean-Georges maintains an extensive menu to please all palates, but its Friday brunch, complete with a jazz band and free-flowing cocktails, is the real highlight.
  • Spice Market, another Jean-George outlet, repeatedly tops the city’s best restaurant lists thanks to its well-executed menu of Asian street food. Must-try items include the kitchen’s creative take on sushi as well as melt-in-your-mouth wagyu beef cheeks with yuzu glaze.
  • The W Café is a popular meeting spot and serves an excellent fashion-inspired afternoon tea. For a picture-perfect drink, order the rainbow latte.
  • Wahm is a hybrid lounge/restaurant with a clubby interior that opens onto a terrace and shisha bar. Known for its cocktails, this sought-after place also has a menu of solid comfort food favorites (the lobster rolls and mini burgers are house favorites).
  • La Spiga, complete with a now-famous disco ball pizza oven, is an in-demand branch of the Milan restaurant chain Paper Moon. Italian food lovers flock here nightly for its sensational pizza and the Paper Moon pappardelle, handmade pasta bathed in a creamy tomato and beef-bacon sauce.
