Readers of Conde Nast Traveller Confirm Four Seasons Hotel Doha Makes Business a Pleasure.
The only Middle East hotel to feature among the top 10 'Overseas Business Hotels' for 2010.
The reputation of Four Seasons Hotel Doha as the best hotel destination in Qatar for the business traveller received an international vote of confidence, with the Hotel ranked 4th Best Overseas Business Hotel in Conde Nast Traveller's recently announced Readers' Travel Awards 2010 – the only Middle East hotel to feature in the Top 10 list.
The Hotel’s high overall ‘percentage of satisfaction’ score of 90.91% (established based on readers’ ratings on 10 criteria including ambience/décor, business services/systems available, food/restaurants, leisure facilities, location, conference facilities, environmental friendliness, service/staff, shopping facilities, standard/comfort of accommodation and value for money) also helped place the Hotel on the esteemed travel publication’s “World’s Top 100 List” for 2010.
The “World’s Top 100” list includes those achieving the highest satisfaction scores from among 27 categories voted for in the Readers' Travel Awards 2010, including countries, cities, leisure and business hotels, tour operators, airlines and spas. Four Seasons Hotel Doha is one of only two Middle East hotel properties to feature on the list.
“Business travellers – both local and international – account for 90-95% of our guests, so looking for ways to make their stay more comfortable and efficient underlines much of what we do,” says Simon P. Casson, general manager, Four Seasons Hotel Doha. “From individual business travellers to larger conference and incentives groups, we pride ourselves on providing business guests excellent facilities and attentive service, as well as offering companies greater value for choosing to come to us. It’s always heartening to see our guests appreciate that.”
Unbeatable location aside – Four Seasons Hotel Doha lies in the capital’s West Bay District, close to the city’s commercial, diplomatic and industrial headquarters – the Hotel has 2,400 square metres (26,000 sq. ft.) of the city’s finest meeting and function venues, catering to small meetings and large events and conferences for groups of 15 to 700 people. The Hotel’s grand Al Mirqab Ballroom opens out onto a large terrace with views of the Arabian Gulf – a truly inspiring location for conferences and business events.
All meeting space at the Hotel is equipped to support the most demanding presentation and communication requirements, with advanced lighting, AV and staging capabilities, telecommunications and electrical hook-ups, while a dedicated onsite technical team looks after the needs of every conference and meeting.
Considerate attention is also guaranteed to individual business travellers, with a range of facilities and services available to help guests enjoy a more productive stay. The Hotel’s efficient Business Centre features a quiet area for reading, two private boardrooms, PCs, fax machines, copiers, internet and other office essentials, while translation services and in-room internet access can also be easily arranged through the Conference and Concierge team.
Even the Hotel’s Spa keeps the hectic schedules of busy business travellers in mind. A special 45-minute Executive Treatment is the perfect pick-me-up for jet-lagged executives – combining a facial with an upper body massage, while the longer 120-minutes Businessman Treatment Package – combining a back and foot massage with a thermal eye-zone treatment – ensures harried CEOs are bright-eyed for the next day’s round of meetings.
And while business guests can always be assured of considerate service and superior facilities at Four Seasons Hotel Doha, companies and MICE organisers are also offered unprecedented value – the Hotel’s Meetings Made Yours package grants the selection of four complimentary concessions for bookings of 10 or more room nights. Concessions can be chosen from among a menu of seven offered, which include items such as complimentary daily intercontinental breakfast in the meeting room or a welcome reception, complimentary internet access in guest rooms and in the general session meeting room, or one welcome amenity per room, once per stay, with a retail value of USD 25.00 or greater per amenity.
