My God, it's luxurious!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 21, 2012

The W is an expensive hotel – a really expensive hotel – that offers a level of luxury in a region in which luxury has taken on a whole new meaning. I was able to stay here thanks to a massive number of points that I had accumulated through business and personal travel, and was additionally lucky in that the hotel management upgraded me to a suite that can only be described as decadent. The hotel is a beautifully appointed structure in the downtown of Doha near the Tornado Tower. Its lobby and common areas are filled with the sort of trendy, post-modern architecture and design that are characteristic of the W chain. The furniture is oddly shaped but comfortable; the lobby contains a lot of glass that has been sculpted or carved; and the lighting is in very interesting forms all throughout the public spaces. The room was a real treat. The lounge area was divided up into separate sections thanks to curtain-like hangings, with a swing and a large couch area. There was a working desk with all the necessary comforts of a home office, and a separate dining table, should you choose to order room service. The bedroom was smaller and cozy, with the round bed draped off by a curtain of threads and illuminated by a massive copper fixture. The bathroom was heaven on earth, with a rainforest shower, a massive mirror, and a deep tub – not to mention the Bliss toiletries!

Unique Quality: I’m not sure what to limit to the list of “good” aspects of the hotel. Let’s just go through some of the things that were lacking. The pool and fitness area were clearly not meant to be for guests actually looking to work out. The pool is somewhere to tan, and the fitness area was, at best, the size of a home gym. Obviously, you are encouraged to make use of the (paid) spa section. The members’ lounge, in which breakfast is served, was well appointed, with a delicious and varied breakfast menu. But it would certainly not hurt to have a separate, ventilated smoking section, as I’m not too fond of the taste of nicotine in my humus. I cannot complain about the staff, as everyone was very friendly and quite helpful, although they tended to ensure that things didn’t go wrong in the first place, minimizing your interaction with anyone but the servers and doormen.
