Hilton Opens its First Hotel in Albania’s capital city, offering travelers world-class hospitality in a growing tourism destination.
The new hotel, which is part of Hilton’s award-winning midscale Hilton Garden Inn brand, joins 62 other Hilton Garden Inn properties open across Europe.
Situated on Gjergj Fishta Boulevard, the highly anticipated property is located just two kilometers from the city center and the business district, offering easy access to local corporations and attractions. In 2017, Albania received more than 5 million visitors,
and foreign visitors to Albania hit a record high. As tourism flourishes, Hilton Garden Inn Tirana offers travelers to Albania access
to the brand’s renowned hospitality. Guests of Hilton Garden Inn properties around the world enjoy comfortable yet affordable
accommodations, modern amenities and the ‘Hilton Garden Inn Promise’ which affirms the brand’s goal to make each Guest’s stay
better and brighter.
The gala ceremony was the occasion to welcome local dignitaries: Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, Minister of Tourism and Environment, Blendi Klosi and other guests to help celebrate the hotel’s opening. The evening gala ceremony included a ribbon cutting ceremony, tours of the property, and reception with a broad spectrum of great entertainment.
“We are delighted to bring the Hilton Garden Inn experience to Tirana,” said Michael Walker, general manager. “With its comfortable rooms, range of dining options and extensive meetings and events space, Hilton Garden Inn Tirana is set to become
the preferred choice for visitors to the city.”
The hotel, which cost 19 million Euro to build, had been signed in 2014 when Hilton entered into a management agreement with Mr. Ali Selmani. The opening of the hotel expands Hilton’s global footprint to more than 108 countries and territories.
