Two of the properties will be hotels: the Renaissance Hotel and Courtyard by Marriott, and the third will be an apartment community: Marriott Executive Apartments Doha City Center. All three will be part of the Doha City Center Mall development and will open by the end of the second quarter.
The hotels will be located within two 48-story towers across from the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC). The complex will be linked to the mall for easy customer access, and all three will include entertainment options, a vitality health zone, and nine food and beverage outlets.
