The Address Downtown finally opened its doors this week after two years of renovation works following a fire that ravaged the building in December 2015. 

Construction Week's sister title, Hotelier Middle East, spoke to the hotel's general manager, Caroline Jane Houston, to get the inside scoop on what's new, what's been updated, and what guests can expect during the stay at the fully-redesigned hotel.

"We have obviously gone through an amazing journey over the last two years and five months, and when we look back on it, it seems as though it was only yesterday since we started the whole re-planning for the restoration," Houston said. 

The hotel reopens with a fully revamped interior and several new features, including restaurants, additional rooms and suites, and The Spa at Address Downtown, which was relocated from the 13th floor down to the 6th, complete with a new entrance and lobby.
