Hilton Hotel which is 40.57 owned by the government cited other factors other than COVID-19 as the reason why they are ending the 53 years stay at the heart of Nairobi CBD.

“Covid-19 created unprecedented challenges for our industry. However, the decision to cease operations is not directly connected to the pandemic.

“Unfortunately, the closure of the hotel will result in a retrenchment process. However, we will work with those impacted to help them find alternative employment,” Said Hilton in a statement.

The hotel also noted that some of their staffs will be assigned to their other hotels under their portfolio. The news comes a day after they confirmed that their other brands will continue with their operations.
