Langham signs first hotel in Qatar

Langham Hospitality Group has signed its first hotel for Qatar. When it opens in 2018, the Langham Place, Lusail will be located in the newly planned city of Lusail, 14 miles north of the capital of Doha.

The hotel will be developed by Real Estate Services Group (RSG) and managed by Langham Hospitality Group. Notably, the property will be part of the first phase of the Lusail City development, and close to Lusail Iconic Stadium, where the opening and final matches of the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be played. 

Beyond its 238 rooms, the hotel will have 90 serviced residences and 56 residences units.
