Looking on from outside the construction fence on Lady Musgrave Road in St Andrew, pedestrians and motorists see only the impressive edifice of the AC Marriott hotel that the operators intend to officially open on June 1.
If, however, you are fortunate enough to get onto the property, you will see a beehive of activity as construction of the 220-room hotel is near completion under the leadership of the Sandals Resorts International and Appliance Traders Ltd team.
Another major focus of the hotel, though, will be the meetings and conventions market, a US$30-billion industry worldwide, according to data provided by online statistics, market research and business intelligence portal Statista.
