A new $50 Million Dollar Hotel Deal has been signed with the Qatar National Bank and developers.

This project consists of 12 typical storeys plus a two-layer underground in addition to the ground and mezzanine floors, said the consultant. He added that the hotel, planned to be a four or five stars, depending on Qatar Hotels Company's classification, would consist of 200 rooms, 20 small wings and six large wings plus three different restaurants, and several other conventional facilities and a car park for 70 cars.

Here's a rendering of the hotel.

I am not sure but this might be it:

STARWOOD Hotels and Restaurants, which runs Doha Sheraton, has signed a pact with Almana Group to run another hotel Four Points. The proposed hotel is expected to start operations in Doha in January 2009.
The new hotel, promoted by Almana Group and managed by Starwood Hotels under a long-term management agreement, would be developed in the Mirqab Al Jadeed district, which is within 5km from the Doha International Airport.
Starwood Hotels and Restaurants, one of the leading hotel and leisure companies in the world, is a fully integrated owner, operator and franchisor of branded hotels and resorts like Sheraton and Le Meridien.
The multi-storey hotel would offer 200 guest rooms and suites, two restaurants, lobby bar, pool bar, fitness centre, outdoor pool, business centre, 1,300sq m of meeting and conference space, retail shops and hotel parking.
"In partnership with the Almana Group, we are looking forward to further developing the Four Points by Sheraton brand and showcasing the brand’s signature service in Doha," said Roeland Vos, president Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc in Europe, Africa and Middle East.
Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co chairman and managing director Hisham al-Mana said the need for a business hotel in Qatar had encouraged the group to conceptualise a business complex centre to house the Four Points by Sheraton in addition to showrooms, shopping arcade, serviced apartments, offices, conference areas over a total area of 70,000sq m.
"This engagement opened a new horizon for other developments with Starwood that will be announced in the near future as well," he said.
Starwood Hotels had earlier announced a 30-year management agreement with Alfardan Group for the management of a new luxury 346-room St. Regis hotel in Doha, which is expected to open in 2010.

Well, at the end of 2005 this one was already under construction! It's located somewhere in central Doha...can't remember where exactly though. Somewhere between Grand Hamad and the national museum. Anyway it wasn't a prime location, far from it!
