Embassy Suites by Hilton to bring 180+room hotel to Guyana

Guyana’s accommodation capacity will soon be further enhanced with the addition of another 186 rooms as the Embassy Suites by Hilton comes here.
According to images shared on Facebook by President Dr Irfaan Ali and the Guyana Office for Investment (GO-Invest), the hotel will be located adjacent to the Arthur Chung Conference Centre, Liliendaal Railway Embankment, Greater Georgetown.
The prime international brand will be a seven-level structure with 186 suite-concept rooms that will not only set a new standard for spacious accommodations but added value offerings associated with the Embassy Suites brand in a contemporary hotel.
The hotel will be constructed on 2.5 acres and is a mere 10-minute drive from the capital city. It is a few minutes away from the Eugene F Correia International Airport at Ogle, East Coast Demerara, and is also surrounded by the Caribbean Community (Caricom) Headquarters and entertainment hotspots such as the MovieTowne Guyana and Giftland Mall.
Within the hotel itself, the Embassy Suites by Hilton will feature multi-functional convention and banquet facilities with other various flexible meeting spaces, venues with natural lighting and outdoor terraces.
It will also contain cafes that offer packaged grab and go items such as snacks, sandwiches, pastries and sweets as well as beverages from coffee to cocktails. In fact, there will be a number of bars offering specialty beverages – restaurant bar, lobby bar and pool bar. The hotel will also have grill venues that will cater the best culinary art-made tasty foods.
Amenities such as high-speed wireless internet access in all suites, function rooms and public areas as well as 24-hour fitness studio, wellness treatment suites, outdoor swimming pool, parking facilities, airport taxi and limo service are all aimed at achieving a memorable experience for visitors.
The Embassy Suites by Hilton is being constructed by a local company in collaboration with Barbados-based Preconco Limited and DRS 360 Hospitality Lab.

First Hilton-branded hotel
Chief Executive Officer of GO-Invest, Dr Peter Ramsaroop told Guyana Times that this will be the first Hilton-branded hotel entering the Guyana market.
“There was announcement of a Hilton previously… but that one never came about. They didn’t move forward into the financial phase,” the GO-Invest Head stated.
According to Ramsaroop, GO-Invest had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the company back in 2020 for the construction of this hotel.
Shortly after taking office in August 2020, President Dr Irfaan Ali had sounded a call to investors to submit proposals for the construction of hotels across Guyana to boost the country’s low accommodation capacity.
Since then, several hotel projects have gotten underway by private developers, mostly local companies partnering with foreign investors to bring top internationally-recognised brands such as Hilton.
In fact, this year alone, there were several sod-turning ceremonies to break ground for the construction of several hotels.
Back in April, Dr Ramsaroop had disclosed in a statement that seven new hotels will be constructed this year, thus adding another 1200 rooms to Guyana’s hospitality sector
“Since 2021, we are finalising investment agreements with major international brands: Courtyard Marriott, Four Points under Marriott, Hyatt Place, AC Marriott and Pasha Global… GO-Invest has either completed investment agreements or is finalising agreements with the listed hotel chain developers. All of these hotels have been approved by the brand and authorised to begin construction,” the CEO had stated.
Among the hotels to start construction this year are: Hyatt Palace, AC Marriott, Marriott Courtyard, Four Points (under Marriott), Best Western, Kings Hotel and Herdmanston Lodge.
Pasha Global is also constructing a 200-room hotel at Liliendaal but not under any international brand.
Already under advanced stage of construction are Aiden Hotel on Robb and Oronoque Streets, Georgetown; Sleepin Hotel on Brickdam, Georgetown, and Marriott Courtyard at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Timehri.
