Haiti’s New Marriott Opens Doors – Caribbean Journal


The hotel is located in the Haut Turgau area of the capital.

The sustainability extends to the hotel’s construction, which includes an energy-efficient diesel plant complemented by a 1-megawatt solar farm; 60 percent of the hotel’s hot water supply is delivered through thermal solar panels on the roof.

And in a region that is increasingly concerned with sustainable tourism development, the Marriott example in Haiti could be a lesson for the Caribbean hotel industry.

“All along, we’ve said that we were committed to Haiti’s recovery and to delivering on its potential as a great place to invest, and as such, we are thrilled to be opening the doors of the Marriott Port-au-Prince here today,” said Digicel Group Chairman Denis O’Brien. “We hope that the opening of the hotel will signal that Haiti is truly open for business and is ready to welcome investors and travelers alike.” via Caribbean Journal
