New Marriott in the heart of Port-au-Prince, Haiti
A new Marriott in the heart of Port-au-Prince. Here is an important milestone in Haiti, the opening of the Marriott Port-au-Prince.
With the help of the Clinton Foundation worked closely with Marriott and Digicel Group, this new hotel will likely attract more foreign direct investment to Haiti
Like a shiny, white beacon to match the high expectations being placed on its shoulders, the 11-story Marriott Hotel in Port-au-Prince, newly opened for business as of the 25th of February, stands out for its newness, simplistic outer design and its ability to reflect the sunlight. While Haiti on a whole and its tourism sector in particular have been benefitting from a tremendous influx of support from local investments and help from around the world, leading to the erection of many new hotels, the implementation of a hibiscus rating system, and a general overhaul of many popular tourist sites with the addition of new ones, it is this hotel which garnered much attention, compelling the presence of Haiti's President Michel Martelly, and former U.S. President Bill Clinton to its grand opening.
