The Opportunity

The  Culinary  Institute  of  America  (CIA)  seeks  an  experienced  developer  to  design,  finance,  develop,  and  operate  a  new  hotel  on  its  main  campus  in  Hyde  Park,  NY,  located  90  miles  north  of  New  York  City  in  the  Hudson  River  Valley. 

The  CIA  is  seeking  a  relationship  with  an  experienced  organization  that  would  develop  a  world-class  hotel  and  conference  destination  for  CIA  guests,  food  enthusiasts,  industry  professionals,  vacationers,  and  tourists  who  travel  to  the  Hudson  Valley. 

The  CIA  will  lease  a  spectacular  parcel  of  land  overlooking  the  Hudson  River  to  the  developer  and  will  provide  a  wide  range  of  economic  benefits,  as  well  as  the  use  of  students  in  the  operation  of  the  hotel  and  its  food service.  The  hotel  will  not  only  accommodate  the  large  amount  of  transient  demand  generated  by  the  CIA  but  will  also  attract  local  commercial,  group,  and  leisure  demand.

This  request  for  proposal (RFP)  is  a  unique  opportunity  for  a  developer  and  hotel  operator  to  collaborate  with  the  world’s  premier  culinary  college  on  a  one-of-a-kind  food  and  beverage  destination.
