Xmas and NYE venues in Doha
Someone new in town asked me where to go for xmas and I thought more people could be interested in the info too. Here it goes very briefly and feel free to add new venues:
"there are many choices at first but unless you act quickly you may find that places get fully booked fast. Here are a few options:
SHERATON: La Veranda is a great Italian, Latino for south american food, Al Shaheen for great views
W HOTEL: Market for International variety, Spice Market for Asian food, La Maison du Caviar for more fancy
MARRIOTT: affordable buffets
RITZ-CARLTON: more expensive buffets and but good quality and variety.
INTERCONTINENTAL: Good buffets at mid'range price, Belgian Cafe for mussels
If you're looking for traditional xmas spirit no one can beat the Sheraton lobby decorations, xmas carols and smell of mulled/glu-wine in their Winter Market (lobby).
The W Hotel is know for being new and trendy. They're also big in the nigh life scene. Then again so is Lava at the InterContinental Hotel."
Merry xmas and happy new year, Ana
