“…is under no obligation to accept any or all of applications received”With the Government forging ahead to push for the construction of a Marriott-branded Hotel it appears that the casino/entertainment component of the project will not be directly managed by the owners of the Hotel.There is currently an invitation for Expressions of Interest (EOI) by Atlantic Hotel Inc., which is the public/private entity set up to own and operate the proposed Hotel.An artist's impression of what the proposed Marriott branded Hotel would look like. AHI invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) “with their proposed concepts from reputed organisations to operate and maintain a casino and/or entertainment complex within the Georgetown Marriott (sic) Hotel and Entertainment Complex”.It is pointed out that the proposed main project components envisaged, include a restaurant with availability for 200 persons with five private rooms, a nightclub that can cater to 500 persons at one time with a two-level design,http://www.airmaxfantasy.us.com/Nike-Air-Huarache/, a casino with a minimum of 200 slot machines and 20 tables and other unfinished space available for retail and open to proposals.The invitation does not stipulate an en bloc approach as applicants can apply for one or more components/ facilities as per their concept and feasibility.“The applicant must demonstrate operations and management experience in similar local and/or foreign ventures and shall provide evidence of their financial capability to implement proposed concepts.”Organisations interested in the venture must register with the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) and pay a registration fee of US$100 or G$26,000. When such an entity is registered it will be provided with a Letter of Authority to visit the property, an Information Memorandum containing all pertinent information, a Request for Proposals (RFP Document) and a Copy of Advertisement.The expressions of interest submitted must include, according to the request conceptual proposal for the facility: Proof of financial capability, background information of the investor and a business plan including employment considerations.Interested parties have until this month-end to submit their proposals, and according to the request posted online; “Atlantic Hotel Inc. is under no obligation to accept any or all of applications received.”This most recent attempt to build a Marriott-branded hotel is said to be operated under a management agreement with AHI, a company “currently owned by the Government of Guyana as part of a public-private partnership between the Government of Guyana and private sector investors.”In mid-May, the government reacted angrily when a Grenadian company, Zublin Grenada, announced that it was seriously considering “a very attractive offer” by the Guyana Government to build the Marriott resort and casino.The proposed project has come in for severe criticism from Robert Badal, Chief Executive Officer of one of Guyana’s internationally recognised hotels, namely the Pegasus.The government insists despite the protests that it will do whatever it takes,Cameron Borthwick-Jackson Manchester United Jersey, including financial backing, to bring the Marriott hotel project to Guyana.“Essentially, whatever it takes to get a Marriott-branded hotel for which, they (Marriott) are assuming responsibility for standards and their reputation, the government of Guyana is prepared and has indicated its preparedness, to be supportive and to be the willing partner in this engagement,” Head of the Presidential Secretariat,Wayne Gallman Youth Jersey, Dr Roger Luncheon indicated at a recent press conference.Badal had told this newspaper that should the proposed Marriott Hotel become a reality it will inevitably kill the hotel industry in Guyana.Badal explained that Guyana is not a tourist destination. The people who travel to Guyana generally conduct business and hold conferences with the few boosts such as when there was the Cricket World Cup in 2007.The Pegasus CEO said that the advent of the Marriott Hotel would not bring any significantly new traffic to Guyana.President Bharrat Jagdeo whilst speaking at the commissioning ceremony of the GT&T fibre optic cable,Shawn Kelley Jersey, in reference to the proposed Marriott Hotel and seeking to justify its construction despite the low level of occupancy in Guyana, spoke of a new hotel proposed in the Bahamas and an occupancy rate in that territory of 40 per cent, and said that they were still going ahead with another large hotel.However, contrary to what the President had stated, the occupancy rate in the Bahamas is, as of the end of June, in excess of 70 per cent and projected to climb.Leader of the Parliamentary Opposition,Authentic Russell Westbrook Thunder Jersey, Robert Corbin, while not wanting to speak on specific figures said that it is ludicrous for the President to compare hotel occupancy rates in Guyana and the Bahamas.Corbin said that the policies and corresponding pull factors are not in Guyana to attract tourists.The Private Sector Commission (PSC),Red Zlatan Ibrahimovic Manchester United Jersey, also by way of a statement, said the entity welcomed the Marriott Brand Hotel to Guyana, but emphasised that “we believe that more disclosure would lend to a greater appreciation of the dimension of government’s involvement in the overall project.”The PSC chairman Ramesh Dookhoo, said that the commission is committed to growth of the economy and the industry at large, and with the infusion of the Marriott Hotel there will be increased competition and as such the industry itself will grow.His sentiments were not accepted by other key players in the Private Sector who believe that Dookhoo was speaking for himself, and not on behalf of a consensus position of the private Sector in Guyana.Ever since Badal’s comments, several other hoteliers have also spoken in support of him, but did so under the condition of anonymity.
