Aimbridge to operate first US hotel in Haiti

Aimbridge Hospitality has been chosen to manage the new Best Western Premier Petion-Ville Hotel in Haiti.

The Best Western Premier Petion-Ville, which is being built near Port-au-Prince, is the first United States branded and managed hotel in Haiti.

The hotel is expected to open in the autumn this year.

The Best Western Premier Petion-Ville is owned by Carabimmo, Inc., who is based in Haiti and saw a need for a higher-end hotel project to host business travellers in the Port-au-Prince area. T

he hotel is conveniently located about five miles from the airport in Port-au-Prince suburb of Petion-Ville.

The seven story, 106-room hotel will feature 2,000 square feet of meeting and event space to cater to business travelers.

In addition to a full service restaurant and room service, the Best Western Premier Petion-Ville will have doormen with black tops and tails, 40-inch flat screen TVs and wireless Internet in each guest room, a gym and a spa located on the property.

There will also be a Presidential Suite and two Governors Suites available at the Best Western Premier Petion-Ville.

Dave Johnson, president and chief executive of Aimbridge Hospitality, is thrilled to have been chosen to manage the Best Western Premier Petion-Ville, and looks forward to working with Carabimmo, Inc. as their local partner.

“We are privileged to have been chosen to manage the Best Western Premier Petion-Ville in Haiti, and believe it is a great opportunity in a growing country,” said Johnson.

“This property and the Best Western brand represent an excellent addition to our resort division portfolio.”
