SINGAPORE (May 22): Eagle Hospitality Trust’s (EHT)’s sponsor, Urban Commons has pledged its commitment to the Queen Mary Long Beach, its second largest asset which has been dogged by controversy.

In an email to The Edge Singapore, an Urban Commons spokesperson says the decommissioned cruise liner, which has been turned into a floating hotel, has been closed since May 7. The closure was attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has hit large parts of the US.

“While leadership at the Queen Mary tried to keep the ship's doors open, with no clear end in sight, the decision was made to temporarily halt operations until the Governor's fourth stage of reopening the state, when the stay-at-home order ends,” says Urban Commons.
