Christmas Dinner in Qatar: Price Comparision

It may seem a little presumptious to start talking about Christmas Dinner at the start of Eid Al Adha, but it might be a good idea to book early - The Four Seasons was already booked up when we rang. (On the other hand, they were the only ones who were booked up!)

The idea of this is basically for a price comparison. We were hoping to be able to go for a beat the credit crunch sort of post. However, the prices are a long way from those of the days of Qatar Christmas past.

My friend can remember when xmas dinner in the Marriot about six years back set him back a mere 80 riyals. As you can see from the prices below, this has now multiplied several times, although the Marriot, along with the Sheraton, does still offer good value compared to the other hotels.

Anyway, we have compared seven major Doha hotels below. We haven't managed to get through to the Movenpick yet, the Four Seasons is booked up, Rydges is not sure if they are even going to be up and the long standing Oasis has now finally been demolished. If you know of any more good places for Xmas lunch, let us know and we will add them in here!
