Hilton hotel group pull out of Limerick

Hotel chain Hilton has reportedly pulled out of Limerick only 18 months after arriving in the city.

The Limerick Leader is reporting that management made the decision over the weekend and have reached an agreement to hand the management of their hotel, located near Sarsfield Bridge, onto the Strand Hotel group.

All the staff were informed of the takeover over the weekend, and it was confirmed that no jobs will be lost.

Businessman John Lally purchased the former Jury's Hotel in 2004, and continued to operate it as a going concern under the Strand Hotel name until its redevelopment commenced in the summer of 2005.

The Hilton logo of the building is expected to be removed and replaced with a strand hotel logo by tomorrow.
