Marriott International has announced its future plans to open a $45 million, 173-room property in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
With only 500 hotel rooms currently operating in the city, the Port-au-Prince Marriott will create much-needed lodging and meeting space for business travelers and visitors alike.
Marriott International has been working with Digicel Group Ltd. and The Clinton Foundation to make the expansion possible. “With lodging options severely limited in Port-au-Prince, this is indeed bright news,” says Denis O’Brien, Digicel chairman and founder.
Based in the Haute Turgeau area of the city, the hotel will feature 168 guestrooms and five suites, each with high-speed Internet, flat-screen TVs and premium bedding. Dining options include a casual restaurant, lobby bar and lounge, and 24-hour room service. Additionally, the hotel will feature a meeting space, fitness center, pool and marketplace.
“This new hotel project will stand as a symbol of Haiti’s recovery, providing much needed jobs to the Haitian people and encouraging foreigners to visit, invest and work in Port-au-Prince,” says President Clinton.
