Qatar Hotel Near Harbor Earns Recognition for Superior Service

TripAdvisor Awards the Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel Multiple Certificates of Excellence

DOHA, QATAR--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2013) - Selecting a hotel depends upon location and amenities, but even the perfect combination of these doesn't guarantee a happy stay. The one feature that trumps all the rest (and can make or break a trip) is service, which is why earning TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence is such a coup for hospitality businesses. In addition to signifying that those businesses are providing the best guest experiences around, the award lets other travelers in on the secret.

For the Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel, receiving the coveted Certificate of Excellence involved manifold achievements. Not only was this boutique hotel in Doha recognized as an excelling property, but so too were four of its restaurants: New York Steakhouse, Cucina, Glo Cocktail Bar and Ipanema.

TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence recognizes only the top-performing 10 percent of hospitality businesses worldwide that are listed on its site. In order to be considered for the award, a business must be on the website for at least 12 months and maintain an overall rating of four or five (out of a possible five). Ratings are determined by travelers, and the number of reviews a property receives is also taken into consideration.

For this hotel near the Doha International Airport, its stellar service, luxurious appointments and appealing amenities create a travel experience that resonates with business and holiday travelers alike. Chic furnishings, rich color palettes and sweeping views captured from the guest rooms of two of Doha's tallest buildings combine in one irresistible destination.

The hotel's other features, like its Saray Spa (featuring minerals sourced from the Dead Sea), fitness center and eight dining options allow the property to transcend ordinary hotel experiences. Its sheer diversity of restaurants, for example, speaks to the lavish attention to detail and service found on property. From a Brazilian churrascaria (steakhouse), to Qatar's most happening lounge, the hotel affords every opportunity for guests to experience something new.

Business travelers will find this consideration extends to the hotel's event venues as well. Boasting some of the most state-of-the-art meeting rooms in Doha, the property facilitates memorable events as well as productive conferences.

From meeting space to dining space and beyond, the Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel has earned its stripes within the hospitality industry thanks to this latest recognition. And if history repeats itself, guests can anticipate only more good things from this premier Doha destination.
