The Secretary-General of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy in the State of Qatar, Hassan Al-Thawadi, announced signing an agreement to operate and provide hotel services for a number of housing units.
Al-Thawadi said that the agreement was signed between the committee and the Accor hotels group, which aims to provide the necessary cadres and tools to operate the units until the end of 2022.
He considered that this pioneering agreement is “an example of the historic approach taken by the State of Qatar, not only in terms of providing the highest organizational standards, but also in terms of planning for the legacy that will remain for future generations.”
Accor will provide the necessary cadres and tools to operate the properties of the host country, which will be the largest operation of its kind to provide hotel services to residential properties in the world.
This includes providing guest staff to operate rooms, reception, check-in and check-out services, operational requirements and more.
The agreement benefits from the country’s real estate portfolio, which sheds light on Qatar’s commitment to sustainability practices.
Al Thawadi explained that “by making full use of the villas and apartments already existing in Qatar, we will be able to provide a variety of convenient and comfortable options for visitors, while ensuring the sustainability of the hotel market in Qatar, ensuring that there are no hotel rooms that exceed the country’s needs after 2022.”
Head of the Operations Office and Deputy Head of the Technical Office for Projects at the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, Yasser Al-Jammal, stressed that the signing of the agreement today is an important step on the road to fulfilling commitment to provide a variety of suitable accommodation options for all visitors coming to Qatar.
“The benefits of signing this agreement with the world-leading Accor group will not be limited to enhancing the experience of all visitors during their stay in Qatar, but will extend its impact to ensure that everyone receives the hospitality and welcome that days do not erase from memory, which is what Qatar and the world are famous for,” he added.
The head of the tournament experience at the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, Khaled Ali Al-Mawlawi, indicated that the signing of the agreement today with one of the largest brands in the hospitality world comes to serve more than 60,000 housing units until the end of 2022.
This agreement is also complementary to the steps taken by the Supreme Committee to provide fully furnished housing units, and the accompanying integrated hotel services that allow visitors to enjoy the experience of staying in Qatar, and learn about the hospitality and welcome throughout their stay.
The Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, witnessed today the signing of an agreement to operate and provide services for a number of housing units for the state between the Committee and Accor.
