A turnkey hotel project


Explanation:
The translation depends on whether it meeans the project, i.e. the construction of the hotel, or the actual hotel building, in which case the translation would be 'a new hotel building which is ready to open'.

Just noticed the 't' in Schlüsselfertigten. If this is deliberate, it would mean 'a completed turnkey hotel project'.

agree  beermatt: except for the note on the extra 't'. It wouldn't make any sense as 'completed'!

A (completed) turnkey hotel (construction) project


Explanation:
If the second "t" in "fertigten" is deliberate, rather than a typo, this could be the southern German or Austrian way to indicate that the project is already completed;

A completed turnkey hotel (construction) project

if it is just a typo, it could still be in progress

A turnkey hotel (construction) project
