Dubai's Address Downtown Opens Doors After Two-Year Closure

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 04 June 2018

The Address Downtown has reopened its doors, completing renovations two years after a fire struck the building on New Year’s Day, 2016.

The hotel reopens with a fully revamped interior and several new features, including restaurants, additional rooms and suites, and a spa.

The 220-room Address Downtown was originally scheduled to reopen in December 2017, according to the chief executive officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, who said the hotel was undergoing a complete revamp during the Arabian Travel Market in Spring 2017.

Also reopening is a revamped Neos, the lounge bar on its 63rd floor, as well as several new dining options.

The Address Downtown initially closed in 2016 after a fire, resulting from an electrical short circuit, ravaged the 63-story tower, leaving 15 injured.

The hotel's operator has not revealed any additional details on the renovation and reconstruction of the building.
