Federal_Hotel_Deal.pdf

As you can see Federal Hotels actually had to pay for the contract which was negotiated in secret, was totally uncontested and extended their previously exclusive arrangement for 15 years not 20.

Further they actually paid an annual fee of $2 million per year and an additional $1.5 million from 2013.

That is the sort of deal ordinary mortals can only dream of.

And finally … where is the 150 room resort employing 180 people?
