The Crowne Plaza Doha The Business Park is an extraordinary property that is distinguished perhaps most of all by its amazingly attentive staff, as led by GM Marcus Sutton.
This stay was to be
four nights, but morphed into three weeks because of a big business opportunity that fell out of the sky. I was pulling all-nighters, writing and editing in the business center, and showing up for meals at all of the wrong times as i ran against the clock to get my proposal finished.
Throughout the staff did all it could to assist and propel me forward. I was supported and looked after by friendly, supremely competent professionals who knew just how to help. Their thoughtfulness was a big relief while i was focused on cranking out an epic document.
The hotel has a bunch of restaurants, great service there, too, pool / sauna / steam and exercise rooms, a fun and funky coffee shop three minutes from the front door, and a terrific location on the airport side of Old Doha. perfect for the banking corridor, Souk, Museum of Islamic Art and the soon-to-open National History Museum.
I have stayed in five business hotels in Doha, and met wonderful people in each, but Crowne Plaza has by far the best suite of attributes for the working business traveler. Most high recommendation. [Less]
