CORONAVIRUS/Mandarin Oriental Hotel suspending room bookings due to COVID-19

Taipei, May 27 (CNA) Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Taipei, said Wednesday that it will not be accepting bookings for accommodation after the end of May, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but its restaurants and wedding banquet halls will remain open.

From June 1, the guest rooms will be closed and all previous bookings will be canceled, the five-star hotel said in a statement.

The decision was made in light of the fact that most of its guests are usually foreign visitors, who cannot now enter Taiwan because of the border restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is unclear when the situation will stabilize, the hotel said.

With the temporary closure of its guest rooms, Mandarin Oriental said, it will have to lay off some employees in its housekeeping department, fully observing the country's labor laws, and will adjust the duties of the remaining staff.
