BEIRUT: Hilton International decided to close down one of its partner hotels in Lebanon, industry sources told The Daily Star Wednesday.

Metropolitan Palace Hotel is one of two hotels co-owned by Hilton International in Lebanon and was opened in 2001 in the Beirut eastern suburb of Sin al-Fil. It remains unclear what prompted the decision to shut it down, leaving more than 150 employees without jobs, the sources said.

The other partner hotel is the Hilton Grand Habtoor Hotel, which is located across the road from the Metropolitan and is connected to it by a covered pedestrian bridge.
