The pandemic severely damaged the hospitality industry worldwide. Due to this crisis, last Hilton Garden Inn Hotel in Tirana closed its doors, more than a year of operation.

As a result, facing the pressure to repay the investment loan and wages, the company closed the hotel. It will remain closed at least until March 2021, was announced last year. Meanwhile, Monitor magazine says the management and staff are laid off.
