Following news that three more Emaar Hospitality hotels would halt bookings, the group has clarified that only the Palace Downtown will close.

Originally it was said that Address Sky View, Address Downtown and Palace Downtown would freeze bookings until May 31. However a spokesperson from the company explained that Palace Downtown is closed for renovations until the end of July and the other two hotels are open.

The statement said: “In line with the directive from Dubai Tourism; we can confirm that we sustain operations of our residences and hotel facilities in Address Sky View and Address Dubai Mall. The Palace Downtown will expedite the current renovation, ready to reopen to welcome guests in July.”

Two weeks ago, Emaar revealed it had temporally stopped bookings at Address Fountain Views, Vida Creek Harbour and Vida Emirates Hills until August 31.
