Despite the relatively stable security situation, most Beirut hotels were incapable of achieving full occupancy for New Year.Le Gray Hotel, for instance, was able to book all its rooms for the two days that precede New Year's Eve and the one day after.Saade added that his hotel is also hosting a party which costs $390 per person and it is already fully reserved.Likewise, Maysa Jouneh, director of sales at Riviera Hotel, reported a full occupancy at her hotel from Dec. 28 till Jan. 1 . But she added that Riviera booked its rooms at low rates in a bid to reach full occupancy. Nasreddine believes that the five-star hotels that are booking all their rooms for New Year have their own clients.All hotels interviewed by The Daily Star said that they expect January to witness some corporate reservations.
