Ezdan Hotel West Bay, managed by Ezdan Hotels Company, held an honorary farewell ceremony for athletes who participated in the ANOC World Beach Games, on the closing day of the tournament.
The ceremony was attended by a large number of guests participating in the competition, representing 97 teams.
During the farewell ceremony held under the slogan ‘Maa Salama (Goodbye)’, Wael El Telbani, Ezdan Group Hotels general manager, delivered a speech during which he expressed delight that Ezdan Hotel West Bay hosted 2,000 international athletes who competed in the ANOC World Beach Games.
In all, the hotel hosted nearly 4,000 international athletes in 1,300 rooms during two global tournaments held in Qatar since last month – first the IAAF World Athletics Championships and then the ANOC World Beach Games. “The rooms were equipped to the highest international hotel standards, manifesting once more its readiness and ability to host large numbers in international sports tournaments in co-operation with various sports authorities in the country,” Ezdan Hotels said in a press statement.
El Telbani also declared a flat 25% discount on accommodation for the athletes and sports representatives should they visit Doha again during 2020.
“Ezdan Hotel features a capacity of 3,000 hotel rooms, high-quality support services and professional staff, in addition to having a long experience in the hospitality industry. It boasts of receiving various teams, delegations in sports events, forums and international conferences hosted by Qatar, which has become, over a short period of time, an international hub for dialogue and sports competitions,” the
statement noted.
“We are proud of the confidence all sports organisations in the country, especially the Qatar Olympic Committee, has shown in us,” said El Telbani, assuring that Ezdan Hotels has the capability and expertise to host and serve delegations participating in the sporting events held in Qatar. “The hotel is also eyeing to host visitors and guests taking part in the most prominent event in the world, the 2022 FIFA World Cup.”
Ezdan Hotel has “a record of achievements” in welcoming and lodging guests for various international events, including the 2006 Asian Games, 2015 AIBA World Boxing Championships and other events, the statement adds.
