DOHA: AlRayyan Tourism and Investment (ARTIC), the hospitality subsidiary of Al Faisal Holding Company, has announced a new hotel brand in Doha’s West Bay, where three hotels will be merged to become one property.
ARTIC yesterday said The Renaissance Doha, Courtyard Doha and Marriott Executive Apartments Doha will collectively be rebranded to become the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel.
Marquis is a brand extension of the Marriott Hotels and JW Marriott Hotels brands.
The 5-star Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel, located at Omar Al Mukhtar Street, West Bay, is directly connected to the City Center Mall.
Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani, Chairman of Al Rayyan Tourism Investment Company (ARTIC), said: “ARTIC’s investment portfolio is renowned for its high quality properties. There are three elements on which we never compromise when buying or developing any property — quality, location and architectural design. It is these core values that enable us to attract world class international operators with high-end brands to partner with us. By introducing Marriott’s modern and elegant “Marquis” brand in Doha we will further enhance the high-end market offering and add significant value to our hotel portfolio.”
Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director of Marrriott International Middle East and Africa, commented: “Marriott Hotels is our flagship brand designed for frequent travellers who want to make the most of every opportunity presented by travel. In addition, the iconic Marriott Hotels brand is on a continuous journey to maintain its position as a leader in innovation to satisfy guests and thereby attract strategic partners like ARTIC.”
Andreas Wissdorf, General Manager of the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel, said: “The Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel is located in the heart of West Bay, with a direct connection to the City Center Mall with over 340 stores. The Hotel offers 17 state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a range of restaurants and lounges with food and beverage options from around the world. The Marriott Marquis also offers one of the finest spas in Doha, the Saray Spa. This serene spa offers traditional Middle Eastern treatments and products and provides an authentic reviving experience.”
