Three more Emaar hotels halt bookings
The hotels will not welcome guests until May 31
Emaar Hospitality has announced three more of its hotels in Dubai have stopped taking bookings. According to sister publication Arabian Business, the properties are the Address Dubai Mall, Palace Downtown and the recently-opened Address Skyview.
All three of the hotels will not welcome guests back until May 31, with each respective website showing no available rooms.
A spokesperson for Emaar Hospitality Group told Arabian Business: “Emaar Hospitality Group cannot comment on rumours and speculation, however, we can confirm that we are consolidating our business to specific hotels and locations based on dates and demands, in order to maximise guest experience; whilst we carry out essential maintenance and renovation works across select hotels.”
Just two weeks ago, Emaar revealed it had temporally stopped bookings at Address Fountain Views, Vida Creek Harbour and Vida Emirates Hills until August 31.
Hotels in Dubai have had a difficult March according to preliminary data from STR. From March 1 to 8 this year compared to last, ADR, RevPAR and occupancy were all down. STR noted Dubai hotels have been seeing some of the sharpest decline across its metrics in years.
