Hilton has signed a management agreement with Samrya Hospitality for The Plaza Doha. The property has been added to Hilton’s LXR Hotels and Resorts luxury brand portfolio.

Located in the heart of Doha, it is situated on C-ring road, and is also a ten-minute drive from Hamad International airport.

The hotel has 290 rooms and suites whose design is based on a classic Parisian concept.

The hotel has a range of culinary options including an American bakery, a juice bar and The Courtyard restaurant. Several additional outlets are set to open, as will a spa and wellness concept.

The Plaza Doha also positions itself as a hotel to host gatherings. It has an entire floor dedicated solely to a ballroom, meeting rooms and two boardrooms. The main highlight is The Grand Ballroom which features a high ceiling, chandeliers, and a private connection to a Bridal Suite.
