Expert Review

This recently opened (officially June 2009) boutique property breathes a youthful  bit of South Beach breeze into Kingston's neocolonial/20th-century-modern hotel scene. Behind a deceptive Spanish facade there's an invitingly quirky lounge/lobby area designed by Jamaican-born Alison Antrobus that has already become a favorite meeting place. For further relaxing there's a stylish lounge and (somewhat shallow) lap pool on the upper terrace overlooking the hotel's determinedly urban setting of parking lots and petrol stations. The convenient location does put guests in easy striking distance of New Kingston's business HQ's, night clubs and embassies, and within sight of the British High Commission. Decorated in a subdued palate, all 107 rooms are equipped with 42" plasma TVs, i-pod docks, and sleek, contemporary furnishings. Guests enjoy the use of the small fitness room, free continental breakfasts (with that wonderful Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee), and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
