The Ritz-Carlton, Doha celebrates a special milestone this month; it is the 10th anniversary of the hotel opening it’s doors in October 2011.

Cluster General Manager Hoss Vetry invited the ladies and gentlemen of the hotel, the guests and certain members of the press including Marhaba, to join him at a cake cutting ceremony in the lobby.

In his speech, GM Hoss Vetry thanked everyone for their support in the last ten years.

He said that he hoped The Ritz-Carlton continued to serve with passion and dedication and thanked Qatar for allowing them to be an integral part of the community.

The Ritz-Carlton, Doha has enjoyed unprecedented growth since it opened and has become a symbol of tourism for Qatar. It has also won several awards, including Best Hospitality Company in Qatar by Arabian Business Magazine Awards, Best Business Hotel in Doha by Business Traveller Magazine Awards and Qatar’s Leading Spa Resort by The World Travel Awards.

Of course, at Marhaba, we remember the inauguration of The Ritz-Carlton, Doha, and found this photograph of His Highness the Emir, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, and the hotel manager Darrell Sheaffer, now General Manager for HDC, and some children in traditional clothes along with the invitation in Arabic to the opening.
