Qatar’s Al Rayyan Tourism and Investment, a hospitality subsidiary of Al Faisal Holding, launched a new hotel brand in Doha’s West Bay district.
Three hotels – the Renaissance Doha, Courtyard Doha and Marriott Executive Apartments Doha – will be merged and rebranded as the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel.
The five-star Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel will be directly connected to the City Center Mall with around 340 stores, and will have 580 guest rooms. The property has 17 meeting rooms.
During the first half of the year, Doha hotels saw occupancy rates rise 11.4 percentage points to 75.9 per cent year-on-year, as the average room rates declined 5.3 per cent to US$219.53, according to TRI Hospitality Consulting Middle East.
