First Trip To Doha

By HDiaz1959

I have read a wealth of information from QL website, and decided to join. I have spent hours reading all the comments to various topics, and feel this website has alot of great people. I will be staying at the Movenpick Tower and Suites. Can anyone tell me anything about this place? I will arrive on July 2, 2007. I do not know anyone there and am interested in meeting new people. I chose Doha because it is one of the Gulf Countries, and eventually, I hope to visit all the Gulf Countries.

Thank Eco-savvy for responding. I do not know how my comment to you was posted in the Forum. I am still navagating myself around the QL website. I thought I clicked on reply to you, and when I looked, I saw my reply posted on the forum. I feel happy with my choice since reading your comment that your collegues had a "gala time there". Where do I get a copy of the Marhaba? I will go to the websites that you recommendeded, and seek out futher information. Have a great day.

All I know is that it is a new hotel. It is really well located near the Corniche (the centre of life in Doha) and City Centre (a huge shopping mall).

Not a bad place to be based to explore Doha.
