Doha, October 6, 2011
Msheireb Hospitality, a subsidiary of Msheireb Properties, has appointed Hyatt Hotel Corporation to manage one of the four hotels in its flagship Msheireb Downtown Doha project.
Park Hyatt Doha will be a distinctive five-star hotel, located within the heart of the business district of Msheireb Downtown while maintaining excellent access to the airport and Doha’s other business districts.
Msheireb Downtown, the world's first sustainable urban regeneration project, will regenerate 31 hectares site in the historical heart of Doha. The project aims to transform the old commercial and business district into the vibrant, cohesive and culturally alive city centre that it once was.

Our strategy is to introduce innovative and integrated hospitality products that will enrich the hospitality sector in Doha and contribute to the broader vision of the country; supporting the tourism industry to promote Qatar as an international tourist destination.”
"We have been actively increasing our full-service portfolio in the Middle East with the upcoming Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas and Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi.
Park Hyatt Doha will further add to our luxury portfolio and offer the personalized luxury and discreet service that Park Hyatt hotels around the world offer," said Peter Fulton, managing director, Hyatt International, South West Asia.
