I have been informed I am eligible for a free hotel stay while on a 19 hour layover in Doha. I have confirmed with Qatar and they said they will email details shortly but I will need to go to a customer service desk who will then allocate a hotel room for me, a taxi and free meals for first 11(?) hours.
I was a bit suprised that I qualified as travelling economy but I thought they would let me know hotel before flying not when I actually arrive at the airport!?
Has anyone had experience with this? is this normal and did it work ok?
Any ideas of what hotels are used for economy travellers?
Also i presume my checked luggage will not be collected in Doha but will be seen at final destination - is this the case (no pun intended)?
