Marriott International, Inc. will add three hotels to its lodging portfolio in Doha, Qatar. This will include a 250-room Renaissance property, a 200 room Courtyard and a 120 unit Marriott Executive apartments. The three new hotels are scheduled to open in 2007 and they will join the 350-room Doha Marriott Gulf Hotel, which opened in 1999, and the Ramada Doha, which opened in 1995. The three new hotels will be located next to the Doha City Centre in the west bay area of Doha and form part of a 110,000-square-foot site on the western end of the mall, which will include two towers. A 24-storey tower will house the Renaissance property, with some 100,000 square feet of office space on the lower floors, and a 29-storey tower will house the Courtyard and Marriott Executive Apartments. The hotel chain will manage the hotels for the Al Rayan Tourism Investment Company, a subsidiary of Faisal Bin Qassim Al-Thani & Sons Holding Company (FQHC). Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim Al-Thani, chairman of FBQHC, said, “Having Marriott on board is a major win for us. It reflects our focus on becoming a major force in the hospitality industry.” “We are excited to be part of this ambitious, visionary project,” said Ed Fuller, president and managing director of international lodging for Marriott International. “Travel to Doha is burgeoning, and we are pleased that local officials are working to expand the economy to include tourism by hosting attractions such as the 2006 Asian Games, a PGA European tour event and a number of tennis tournaments, including the Qatar Open.”
