Georgetown Marriott Resort Hotel and Gaming Center

Georgetown, Guyana

Urbahn’s master plan guided the design and development of the most up-to-date hotel and gaming facilities in Guyana. Located on an 8.5 acre site at the intersection of the Demerara River and the Atlantic Ocean in the heart of capital city Georgetown, the complex is a major catalyst for the burgeoning tourism industry. The complex was strategically located to take advantage of its proximity to the business district, 800 feet of beach frontage, and access to the river, a major gateway to ecotourism areas. The 10-story 160-bed hotel includes an infinity edge swimming pool, landscaped gardens, indoor and outdoor cocktail areas, and a fitness center. The gaming center includes a nightclub, two restaurants, retail space, and a conference/banquet center. The building wraps around a landscaped piazza with a pool and tensile shading structures, and provides direct access to the beach.
