Marriott now aiming for December opening
-General Manager confirms
The Guyana Marriott Hotel Project will now be aiming for a Christmas opening after officially missing its August completion deadline.
General Manager, Roberto Grisi confirmed that the hotel is “slated to open this December,” in an email to Stabroek News. Construction at the hotel is ongoing with the exterior still to be finished and construction on the building which will house the entertainment complex and casino is still in a skeletal form.
Grisi revealed that while he “anticipates that 90% – 95% of our new employees will be Guyanese nationals,” the management will be brought in. He said that “when opening our first hotel in any new market, we generally provide an experienced Marriott leadership team to manage and launch the hotel.”
