Hilton has opened a new Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts property in Doha — and it’s inspired by the original property in New York!
Let’s take a look at the details of this brand-new hotel!
Spa Spans 4 Stories
Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay features 283 rooms and suites, plus 50 luxury apartments spanning 44 floors. Hilton says the hotel’s façade and main entrance are “almost identical” to the original Waldorf Astoria in New York. Other Manhattan-inspired features exist, from New York artwork in the guest rooms to Manhattan-inspired bars and restaurants.
Amenities include 2 ballrooms, 2 boardrooms, 3 multi-functional meeting rooms, an outdoor patio, and 7 food and beverage options.
Additionally, the hotel boasts a massive 4-story spa with amenities including salt and hydrotherapy pools, a salon, treatment rooms, a fitness center, and several pools.
All guests will be assigned a personal concierge to handle requests during their stay.
Hilton pointed to Qatar’s growth in international travel — the country saw 4 million visitors last year — for bringing a Waldorf Astoria to Doha.
“We are delighted to be expanding our presence in the country with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay,” said Guy Hutchinson, president of Middle East & Africa at Hilton. “Whether in Qatar for business or leisure, the property’s timeless design, enticing culinary options, four-floor spa and sophisticated events facilities make it an urban oasis in the heart of the city.”
How to Book Waldorf Astoria Doha West Bay
Cash rates are incredibly reasonable, with stays in March starting at $238 per night. Award nights start at 80,000 points per night for standard rooms.
While you won’t find a Hilton Honors award chart, award rates in the Middle East are decent when using points. Because Hilton doesn’t use an award chart, rates can be cheaper or more expensive depending on availability and travel dates.
Still, earning Hilton Honors points is still pretty simple — and probably the easiest hotel points you can earn. Hilton offers several ways to earn points, such as spending on co-branded credit cards, transferring points from American Express, riding in a Lyft, and eating out with Hilton Honors Dining.
This is a beautiful property with many details reminiscing the original Waldorf Astoria property in Manhattan. Even better, the hotel is affordable whether you’re paying cash or using points. While Doha already has its share of high-end Hilton properties, this hotel will soon be at the top of the list!
