Qatar’s first lifestyle hotel honoured as ‘Best Business Hotel’ by Conde Nast Traveller ME, ‘World’s Leading Hotel Residences’ by World Travel Awards and ‘Luxury Business Hotel’ at World Luxury Hotel Awards
Doha, Qatar (December 2013) – W Doha Hotel & Residences consolidated its position as Qatar’s first luxury lifestyle hotel, when it took home the ‘Best Business Hotel Middle East’ award at the first ever Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards in the Middle East. The awards, which are voted by Conde Nast Traveller readers, honour the best the travel world has to offer in terms of cities, islands, hotels, resorts, cruise liners and airlines.
Additionally, W Doha was also delighted with their double wins at the renowned World Travel Awards and Luxury Hotel Awards over the past weeks, adding to its growing list of hospitality awards with ‘World’s Leading Hotel Residences’ and ‘Luxury Business Hotel’. These ceremonies are considered the biggest events on the luxury hotel industry calendar, welcoming some of the industry’s elite - including CEOs of leading travel companies, government ministers and tourism board chiefs who travelled from around the globe to attend the red carpet events.
The awards bring to an end an extremely successful year for W Doha. From the moment of arrival, only the highest level of service is offered to guests, where the hotel mixes cutting-edge design with local influences, to create more than just a hotel experience, but a luxury lifestyle destination. W Doha has carved out a niche as a trendsetter by redefining the design-led hotel experience in the GCC, and combining its unique personality and style with its reliable, consistent and attentive service.
W Doha Hotel & Residences General Manager Safak Guvenc comments, “We are extremely proud to have won these highly commendable awards and I would like to congratulate each and every member of our team who has made such success possible. To be voted winners by the public and honoured respected professionals working within travel and tourism underlines our popularity in the Middle Eastern market and growing recognition on a global platform.
Guvenc adds, “What sets the W Doha apart from the competition is its exceptional personalised customer service, offering the ultimate insider access to a world of comfort, attentive hospitality and the highest levels of service excellence”.
