Marriott International has kicked against the impromptu shut down of Sheraton Hotel, adding that 291 employees will be affected by the rushed closure.
Marriott International spokesperson said:“The owners of the Sheraton Abuja Hotel have informed us that they intend to close the hotel in a matter of days.
“Whilst we acknowledge that the owners need to carry out significant renovation works at the Hotel, we have objected to the closure on such short notice. We are concerned that the hurried manner of such closure will cause distress to hotel employees, and significant disruption to guests, suppliers and partners.
“After more than 30 years managing this iconic Abuja property, we are now working with the HAPSSSA and NUHPSW unions to support the 291 hotel employees impacted by this rushed closure.”
