I have been living at the Intercontinental The City since March 2018; the service level at this hotel is amongst the best service that I have experienced anywhere in the world. I have had the odd
issue (as one can expect with a long term stay), but the staff of this hotel have bound into action every time and sorted out the issues quickly and efficiently. The apartment is spacious and allows for easy access the rest of the hotel, while being segregated from the hustle and bustle by means of a different elevator access. The apartments are serviced twice weekly and there is nothing they won't do for you.
The hotel is well positioned in the centre of West bay, which allows quick access to most things in Doha.
Two things that go against this hotel....
(1) Every restaurant and bar in the building allow smoking :( Quite archaic I know, but for some reasons it is not against the law to smoke in restaurants and bars in Qatar and it would seem that the Intercontinental Hotel don't view their clients health as a high priority.
(2) My age old gripe with IHG - their food and beverage department only know how to prepare food for meat eaters, although this hotel is one of the best IHG hotels that I have stayed in for vegetarian selection, they are still far behind other 5 star hotels when it comes to vegetarian selection and catering (Hint: Placing vegetarian food next to a meat dish, which allows for a customer to make use of the same utensil to pick up the meat as the vegetarian dish results the vegetarian dish no longer being a vegetarian dish! and vegetarians don't live on salads, this is a side dish, enjoyed by both meat eaters and vegetarians alike!
Even with these two negative points, I would still strongly recommend this hotel as one of the best hotels that I have had the privilege to stay at - and if you are a smoking meat eater, then this will be the perfect place for you to stay, as it is my opinion that these are the only two negatives.
