I spy with my little eye... the whatever/whenever Hotel.

Up until they invited me, I was not familiar with the W Hotels so I was curious to discover them. Boy, it was a nice surprise! First of all, you need to get used to their language: when I arrived "Insiders" kept greeting me... What is an Insider? They seemed to have a lot of them but I had no idea what they were in charge of. All I knew is that they were very nice, quick and efficient. I finally asked and understood that an Insider is in charge of guest relations. Made sense. They will also talk about B&F (as opposed to F&B), because cocktails are key at W Hotels. They have a whole culture and it starts with a young and very reactive team (A special thank you to Gonca and Hina!). One thing to know: they do not wear any badge, so if a stranger starts talking to you for no reason, don't be scared. He might know your name, yes, that's normal. That's also how I found myself explaining to a guest that no, I did not work for W Doha and I couldn't help him with his TV, pretty hilarious! They are on top of social media, on top of everything that happens in the city (and on top of cleaning, I had to gently ask them to come back later since I was still in my robe when the cleaner came knocking on my door), they have happenings on a regular basis: music, fashion, culture, food, the place is always buzzing. One thing I have to share is their Whatever/Whenever philosophy: you can ask them anything, anytime, they will do their best to fulfill your desire. A shawerma at 4am? Yes they can. Candy cotton for the kids snack? Yes they can? A bathtub filled with yellow M&Ms? Yes they can! How cool is that? Feel free to test them, they love a good challenge!

For now let's get into the rooms. I am not a big fan of the uber futuristic style but I like a clear interior and light colours, so the combination of black and gold worked well for me. And as you can see... I clearly enjoyed the bed...

W Doha was very generous with us and booked us suites... Happy (and grateful) lady!

Now the hotel is 30min away from the airport, 20min away from the centre, it offers 3 restaurants, 1 café, 1 bar, pool, gym (obviously I can't say a lot about the pool and the gym: too cold for the pool, too Parisian for the gym), and Bliss spa. I will report back about the food and the spa later (these 2 things I can definitively tell you about!). The place is clearly buzzing and coming back from a night out, I did feel like coming back to a night club since Doha's golden youth loves to come to W for a drink. Not necessarily my scene but it was a good validation that we were in the place to be seen.

Hello, I live here now.


Cosy living room.
