I believe she opened as a hotel mid April.

Apparently due to open as a hotel 'soon' according to local Dubai news:

Captain Ted, Yes that was the plan, however "work" has been in progress for over ten years. Local folk are skeptical.

Thank you Jim and Clyde. Pilot went as close as he could for me to take this shot. Seems to be some confusion in Dubai on her future.
