Premier Inn Signs Contract with Qatar

by Andrea on 20 Oct 2010

Recently, Premier Inn and Dohaland announced the signing of a joint venture agreement that will introduce Premier Inn’s successful ‘value hotel model’ to Qatar.  The first project to be undertaken within the joint venture agreement is a 200-room hotel that will be constructed at the Doha Educational City, a region on the city’s outskirts that is home to some of the world’s leading educational institutions.

Dohaland Hospitality, administrator of the joint venture, has been authorised to introduce distinctive hotel brands such as Premier Inn to Qatar, thereby boosting the country’s development of its hospitality and tourism industry and attaining the highest contemporary standards of hospitality.

The Dohaland Hospitality CEO, Abdul Aziz Al-Emadi, and Premier Inn’s managing director in the Middle East, Darroch Crawford, expressed their delight at Premier Inn’s introduction to Qatar, and predicted the rapid increase in the number of Premier Inn hotels there. Both believe that there is a need for Premier Inn’s brand of affordable accommodation in the region, and that the internationally recognised brand is the best hotel chain to make this a reality.

All Premier Inns in the area have an in-house restaurant and comfortable en-suite guest rooms with flat screen TVs and free Wi-Fi.
