Luxury rooms right above the soccer field
Marriott signed an agreement last year with the Albanian construction company AlbStar for the five-star hotel. And this happened after Marriott de-flagged the Sheraton in December 2017. This will be the first property the international hospitality company will have in Albania.
Marriott Tirana’s tower is 140 feet tall; has 24 floors, and will be one the tallest building in Albania, a great reference for the stadium and the city. An exclusive hotel for an exclusive experience. A floor of luxury rooms right above the field; a large shared restaurant with the VIP hospitality area of the stadium and other incredible services for guests. It will have approximately 150 rooms, SPA, conference rooms, fitness etc.”
Tirana’s new stadium, that bears the country’s flag carrier name, Air Albania, and where Marriott Tirana hotel is located, was inaugurated on November 17, 2019.
But, the hotel can be booked by travelers in May 2023, with rates starting from 142 euro (plus taxes).
