The new-build 307-room ho­tel is si­t­u­ated in the cen­tre of Doha’s CBD, next to the ex­ist­ing Crowne Plaza Doha - The Busi­ness Park on Al Matar Street, a 15-minute drive from Ha­mad In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

The ho­tel has a 907-square me­ter pil­lar­less ball­room, seven meet­ing and func­tion rooms, a pri­vate bridal room, and a mul­tipur­pose busi­ness cen­tre, gym, an out­door swim­ming pool and a pool lounge. Din­ing con­cepts in­clude Ital­ian restau­rant, Sirocco, and the burger-cen­tric fran­chise, Stock Burger & Co.

Pas­cal Gau­vin, chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer, In­dia, Mid­dle East and Africa, IHG, said: “We are thrilled to open our first Hol­i­day Inn ho­tel in Qatar, in part­ner­ship with Trans Ori­ent Group. We are es­pe­cially hon­oured to part­ner on the sec­ond ho­tel with H.E. Sheikh Mo­hammed Bin Ha­mad Bin Ab­dul­lah Al Thani and we are con­fi­dent that Hol­i­day Inn Doha - The Busi­ness Park will be as suc­cess­ful as our first ven­ture to­gether, Crowne Plaza Doha - The Busi­ness Park.”

“The com­fort, con­ve­nience and friend­li­ness that the brand is recog­nised for world­wide, along with a strate­gic lo­ca­tion and prox­im­ity to Crowne Plaza Doha - The Busi­ness Park will be wel­comed by both leisure and busi­ness trav­ellers vis­it­ing Doha from both in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic mar­kets.”

H.E. Sheikh Mo­hammed Bin Ha­mad Bin Ab­dul­lah Al Thani, Trans Ori­ent Group, said: It is our plea­sure to work with IHG once again in bring­ing the Hol­i­day Inn brand to Qatar, and to grow our hos­pi­tal­ity port­fo­lio. IHG brings a strong, global dis­tri­bu­tion sys­tem along with one of world’s largest loy­alty pro­grams, which will add great value to the ho­tel’s world-class fa­cil­i­ties and favourable lo­ca­tion.”
