Reports suggest a relief aid package could be drawn up to help major players in the industry, with Best Western, Hyatt and others proclaiming their support.

Hilton chief executive Christopher Nassetta has stated that this is the first closure in the brand’s long history that is not related to a demolition or refurbishment.

Meanwhile other hoteliers report properties running at only 5% occupancy in recent weeks.
