W Doha Hotel & Residences, the first luxury lifestyle hotel in Qatar, revolutionizes guest experience yet again with the Starwood Preferred Guest ® (SPG) App for the Apple Watch, enabling guests to check-in and enter their room with just a flick of the wrist. The technology has been available after the most recent IOS update. To use this new technology, the Apple Watch must be connected to the iPhone, which in turn must have the SPG app and be registered for SPG Keyless. Bluetooth needs to be switched on to unlock the door with the Apple Watch. For more information on keyless entries at W Doha Hotel & Residences, kindly click here – SPG Keyless.

W Doha Hotel & Residences, as part of the global and award-winning loyalty program Starwood Preferred Guest ® (SPG®), remains to be a leader in hospitality innovation with the technologies it has introduced in the last few months. In November 2014, it has pioneered the use of SPG Keyless, the first mobile, keyless entry system that enables guests to use their smartphone as a key. Earlier in 2014, it has announced its innovative 24/7 messaging service called “Stay Connected”, an initiative that has made it the first property in the Middle East to offer complimentary interactive services via WhatsApp and BlackBerry Messenger.

Guests can sign up for this and send any type of request to the hotel pre, during and post-stay through these mobile channels. In addition, it has also put into place the first customized booking system on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in the region called #bookwdoha. By tagging @wdoha on these platforms and using the hashtag #bookwdoha, guests are able to directly make a hotel reservation.
