Do I need to book hotel quarantine if I have received a conditionally approved vaccine?

Yes, a negative PCR test must be obtained within a maximum of 72 hours before arriving to Qatar. The test must be carried out at a centre licensed to conduct covid-19 PCR tests by the local Ministry of Health at the country of arrival.
