I am shocked that there are no rooms at the Ramada/Radisson in July. It's off-season in town. Maybe there is a glitch in the reservation system(s) given that management changed over on July 1?

Oh, well, I would also choose the W anyway.

P.S. A major caveat: Bars are closed during Ramadan, and alcohol is not available at all in Doha (except via room service at a few places, including the W). Ramadan starts on around July 20, so if you're coming after that day, you will have difficulty. In that case, I would recommend the sohour buffet at the W, where they have pretty good Arabic and international food, local non-alcoholic drinks, sheesha, and entertainment overnight.
