Emaar Hospitality suspends bookings at three hotels in Dubai
This will extend until August 31 and comes amidst general slowdown in hotel sector
Dubai: Emaar Hospitality said it will stop bookings at some of its hotels between March 15 and August 31 amidst a general slowdown in the travel industry due to the coronavirus spread.
The email added that now is a "most difficult time" and that the company will change operation plans as a result. "Following the recent global impact on the travel industry drawing us to a state of force majeure, Emaar Hospitality Group has taken the decision to temporarily refocus its operations on a selected number of assets," it said.
While bookings for guest rooms at the three hotels will be suspended, other services at these properties such as restaurants, swimming pools, and gyms will remain operational, Emaar said. Guests who already have reservations at any of the three hotels will be relocated to other Emaar properties - Palace Downtown, Address Dubai Mall, Address Boulevard, Manzil Downtown, and Address Dubai Marina Mall, among others.
