“I am delighted to be in Qatar, and I’ve had a lot of positive vibes about its booming hospitality sector. Also, due to substantial economic growth, Doha is poised to be the hub for international conventions and exhibitions.

The hotel has positioned itself as a prime destination to businessmen and is also by far the most popular hotel among all segments of the society," he continued.
