Hotel Missoni is Also Heading to Doha (But What About the U.S?)

Not long after they announced a new hotel in Mauritius, Missoni Hotels has decided to take their dizzying chevron and colorful block patterns to Doha.
Parent hotel company, Rezidor, along with the Al Jassim Group announced that the 220-room hotel will be exclusively designed by Rosita Missoni, the matriarch who founded Missoni along with her husband in 1953. And it looks like the rest of the Missoni signature hotel offerings will also be in place.
The extensive food and beverage outlets will comprise Hotel Missoni's signature restaurant "Cucina" with a traditional yet creative Italian menu, a second all-day-dining restaurant, Bar Missoni, a pool bar and a lobby lounge. The food and beverage offering will be further enhanced by a number of distinguished fine dining restaurants providing a variety of culinary tastes incorporating the luxurious and stylish essence of the Hotel Missoni brand. Guests will benefit from an 800 square meter Spa- and fitness area, an outdoor swimming pool, approximately 1,500 square meter conference- and banquet facilities including ball room, and a business centre.
The hotel will also include 70 serviced apartments but don't call the moving vans just yet as the hotel will not open until 2015.
Sadly for the rest of U.S-dwelling folks, Missoni has no plans as of yet to open a hotel stateside. About as close as we'll get is Brazil, which is reportedly still in the works and should open in 2014. Ugh.
