The Address Downtown has finally reopened its doors, completing renovation works two years after a fire struck the building on News Years 2016.

The hotel reopens with a fully revamped interior and several new features, including more restaurants, additional rooms and suites, and The Spa at Address Downtown.

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

Commenting on the launch, he said: “With the opening of Address Downtown, Emaar is bringing to life a crowning glory in its hotel assets.

“Working with world-leading designers and consultants, the all-new Address Downtown ushers in an exceptional lifestyle choice and set new standards in luxury hospitality.”

Also reopening is a revamped Neos, the lounge bar on its 63rd floor, as well as several new dining options including The Galliard, which will serve French, Spanish and Turkish cuisine, and a branch of famous steakhouse STK.

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

Emaar Hospitably Group, the hotel's operator, has not revealed any additional details on the renovation and reconstruction of the building.
