Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences - Booking

I booked my stay at the Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences the day before I arrived.

Indeed, I was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, waiting to get a ticket to attend a World Cup match (and Hayya accreditation). With the craziness of the World Cup, hotels were costing a minimum of $500 per night.

However, Hilton Honors or Marriott Bonvoy member hotels were releasing last-minute availability with the points.

I was able to book my night at the Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences for only 60,000 points (instead of 950 CAD at the public rate)!

Earn Hilton Honors points

The best way in Canada to earn Hilton Honors points for free stays at thousands of hotels worldwide is through the American Express Membership Rewards program.

You can convert 1,000 Membership Rewards points into 1,000 Hilton Honors points. For example, you could convert 30,000 Membership Rewards points from your American Express Cobalt® Card Cobalt card into 30,000 Hilton Honors points.

And being a Platinum Card® holder from American Express earns you Hilton Honors Gold status (giving you free breakfasts at all Hilton Honors hotels)!

Alternatively, if you have the option to sign up for U.S. credit cards, you could get a Hilton Honors credit card like the Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card.

With this card, you will earn many Hilton Honors points as a welcome bonus as well as Hilton Honors Diamond status.

Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences - Location

Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences is located in the north of downtown Doha, in The Pearl district.

This district, built entirely on water, is an archipelago of artificial islands with hotels, marinas, shops and leisure centers.

Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences - Registration

Arriving from Riyadh on a Qatar Airways Qsuite flight, I checked in at the Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences around 6pm.

The process was very quick and I was even upgraded with my Hilton Honors Diamond status to a high floor 1 bedroom suite.

Hilton Doha-61

On the reception level there is a café and several seating areas. The reception was particularly lively the night I arrived, with many Portuguese and Swiss fans getting ready to go to the Round of 16 match (which I was also going to attend).

My room was room 3609 on the 36th floor of the hotel. Notice the “very chic” common areas!

Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences - Room

Upon arriving at my suite, I was particularly surprised by the size and amenities of the suite.

Hilton Doha-21

As you can see in the gallery below, the living room is particularly large. Equipped with a sitting area with sofa and armchairs, and a dining table for 4 people.

A fully equipped kitchen completes the package. Note that a shower room as well as a laundry room are present in this room.

Like the living room, the king bedroom is particularly large and the bed is very comfortable.

Hilton Doha-09

It is equipped with a large connected TV and a JBL clock radio.

The icing on the cake: this suite has a large balcony with a dining table for 4 people with a beautiful view of The Pearl and the different marinas.

Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences - Breakfast

Breakfast is served in The Kitchen restaurant.

Hilton Doha-28

Being in period of World Cup of Football, the decoration was made of flags.

Hilton Doha-29

You can have your breakfast in the restaurant or on the terrace.

Breakfast is in the form of a buffet.

Hilton Doha-33

As you can see in the gallery below, there are many choices of international and Middle Eastern dishes. And the quality was there!

You can also order certain dishes at your table.

Hilton Doha-30

Personally, I chose to round out my meal with the Ultimate Benedict.

Hilton Doha-46

To receive free breakfast at all Hilton Honors hotels, you must be a Hilton Honors Gold or Diamond member.

In Canada, as a Platinum Card® holder from American Express, you earn Hilton Honors Gold status upon application. This is one of the many advantages of this Card.

So, if you only stay a few nights a year at hotels and therefore don’t have Elite status in a hotel program (like Hilton Honors, Marriott Bonvoy or IHG), this is a great way to get free breakfasts with every stay!

Hilton Doha The Pearl Hotel & Residences - Around the hotel

In and around The Pearl Archipelago, you will find many activities to do. I enjoyed my visit to the cultural village of Katara.

As well as on the beach of Katara. The atmosphere was very pleasant (especially in the evening).

You are also not far from the new posh district “Lusail”. This is where the stadium that hosted many World Cup matches (including the Final) is located, as well as the Place Vendôme shopping mall, which is in the style of the City of Light.
