(DOHA, QATAR) -- Marriott International, Inc. recently celebrated its new multiple-brand Doha City Center, highlighted by the luxury 257-room Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel. Other elements unveiled at the new Doha City Center are a 204-room Courtyard by Marriott Doha City Center and 123-unit Marriott Executive Apartments Doha City Center.

All three properties are situated in two 48-storey towers located in West Bay across from Qatar Financial Centre. The master-planned resort development is adjacent to the Doha City Center Mall that features more than 340 shops and attractions and just 15 minutes from Doha International Airport.

Each hotel has its own unique look and feel, while sharing many floors within the complex, including three expansive lobbies, nine restaurants and bars, 1200 square meters of meeting space, a world-class Vitality Zone health club and Marriott International's signature Saray Spa, known for offering traditional Middle Eastern treatments.

"Not only do we offer close to 600 rooms and three very distinct lodging brand experiences, but our nine distinctive dining options and health and fitness facilities create the wonder of the "West End" and spectacular Doha City Center complex," said Oliver Kahf, general manager. "This unique lodging, shopping and entertainment complex is quickly becoming a tourism hub in Doha for both our hotel guests and locals."

The 257-room Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel stands out with its colorful fabrics, bold design and indigenous touch brought to life through artwork from Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani's collection of cultural and historical art. The Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel is equipped with the finest amenities and innovative technology, boasting 17 meeting rooms across 1,200 square meters (12,917 square feet).

Embracing various local elements - from design to cuisine - the hotel provides visitors with a unique environment as well as comforts in forms of luxurious bedding, a club lounge, rooftop pool, business centre, high-speed internet and exclusive amenities. RLife Live, a signature program for Renaissance Hotels which launched in October 2010, is highly regarded as a leading entertainment hospitality program dedicated to providing guests and local patrons with the opportunity to engage with musical talent on-site at various hotels around the world.

"The opening of the three hotels is a major step forward in reinforcing Doha's futuristic vision and surging tourism potential in Qatar," said Mark Satterfield, chief operating officer Middle East & Africa. "With the opening of these new hotels, we now have six properties in the country, which is quickly becoming a key business and leisure destination in the Middle East."

The 204-room Courtyard by Marriott Doha City Center combines comfort and functionality and offers access to all 17 meeting rooms of the Renaissance Doha City Center Hotel.

The Marriott Executive Apartments offers the ideal corporate housing solution and the perfect combination of upscale apartment-style living and premier hotel service.  Each of the 123 well-appointed apartments has a panoramic view of the city or the Arabian Gulf.

At the Marriott Executive Apartments Doha City Center, residents can relax at the residents' club - towering 44 floors above the city with a lap pool, Jacuzzi, and magnificent views of the city skyline. There is also a fitness and lounge area that can be booked for private events,

With the opening of the complex, Marriott International will manage six hotels in Qatar. Additional properties include the 374-room The Ritz-Carlton, Doha, the 362-room Doha Marriott Hotel, and the 174-room Sharq Village & Spa (managed by The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C).

Heritage Golf Group Announces TPC Piper Glen's Re-Opening Following Greens Project

(CHARLOTTE, NC) -- Heritage Golf Group announced it reopened TPC Piper Glen, a premier private golf club facility designed by Arnold Palmer, after undergoing extensive renovation work.

The facility closed its course in July to replace the greens with a new generation bentgrass called Dominator. During the greens project, TPC Piper Glen took the opportunity to improve overall golf course aesthetics and to re-contour the slope of the 14th green, the signature hole on the golf course.

In celebration of the grand re-opening, TPC Piper Glen will introduce a new social calendar featuring interactive activities for the kids, as well as updated social events and dining menus for the enjoyment of the adult members and guests. The Club also recently added a new fitness center which features state-of-the-art equipment.

"We are looking forward to re-opening the course and are excited to welcome back our members and guests who have been patient and supportive during our greens project," said Eddie Carpenter, General Manager of TPC Piper Glen. "I am very pleased with our progress and would like to give a special thank you to golf course superintendent Dean Sparks and his entire staff for the incredible improvements that have been made."

TPC Piper Glen was the first course in the state to become certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. TPC Piper Glen is a non-equity club operated by Heritage Golf Group and is a member of the PGA Tour's TPC Network of properties nationwide.
