InterContinental® Doha The City is proud to be the first hotel in Doha to receive the five-star hotel accreditation from Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) after successfully completing the requirements for the latest QTA standard audit for hotels in the country. The certificate was awarded to the management by QTA on 18 January 2018. The classification is based on the criteria of the Hotel Classification System of Qatar.

According to QTA, they have instituted a standardised system for the classification of hotels, hotel apartments and other accommodation providers. It was designed according to international best practice and adapted to local conditions. Provisions cover the full range of facilities and services that hotels or hotel apartments must offer to qualify for grading. Following self-evaluation, each hotel’s submission is then verified by an on-site inspection by QTA officials to ensure that all criteria are fully complied with.

Gilles Longuet, General Manager of InterContinental Doha The City, said:

We are proud to be the first hotel in the country to have passed all the classification requirements of the Qatar Tourism Authority to receive the accreditation once more as a five-star hotel in the country.’

‘I would also like to thank our owner, Ahmed Al Kubaisi, for all of his support and to our colleagues for all of their hard work as they have delivered consistent service excellence of the highest standards to all of our guests.’
