Qatar Airways has had a transit hotel for Economy and Business Class passengers when booked on Qatar Airways ticket stock for several years now.
All it takes is a 12 hour plus stopover in Doha – this is valid even if there is an earlier flight. However partner award tickets are not eligible for this (not on Qatar Airways ticket stock).
The list for Business Class passengers is even better and includes the St. Regis and Four Seasons!
Keep in mind that you don’t get to choose your hotel. The transit desk will do that for you. I have not been able to book a hotel in advance and the Qatar website errors out on me.
Qatar Airways now has added another option – a two night stay at just $50 a night. Doha is not the most lively town but has a decent amount of things to explore.
The two night layover options is called dubbed +Qatar Ultimate and beats the high hotel rates (especially in the Gulf winter) handily.
Stay for two nights and indulge in Qatar’s unique culture and hospitality.
