Projects/Hotels Status (Rumors?)

Honestly, I didn't want to start this thread but I have to... I'm sure most of the readers will feel disappointed after reading.

Concerning the projects, I heard that construction for Four Seasons is on hold. Now, I'm not sure if this rumour is accurate or not. I have to check tomorrow as I'm driving to AUB.

As for the hotels status, I heard rumours that Mövenpick and Habtoor Hotels have closed.

Again, these are rumours. But I doubt they are incorrect.
I dont think this is entirely correct because there is a major concert planned at the movenpick in March.
I think it's just's true tourism is bad nowadays,but not catastrophic.
Today I passed by Four Seasons Hotel. Usually I saw workers working on the top of the building. Today I didn't see. But there were a few workers on site.
Habtoor Hotel seems to be closed.
Go here and try to reserve a room. You'll get a message saying:
The Front Office Reservation System is currently down for maintenance reasons.
I tried the same for Mövenpick. The system is working!
Naregkar, the habtoor grand hotel and movenpick aren't closed (yet...).
As for the online reservation, it was never actually operational.
^^ thats true, the online reservation never worked with him, but Naroug if this is true, wouldnt it be on the news?
^^ Well I don't know...

But I heard on the news that even Phoenicia Intercontinental Hotel is suffereing a lot... Too risky...
Okay guys, Habtoorland has closed its doors now. About 800 workers are out. (It was reported by LBC News)
