Marriott International’s exclusive brand; Autograph Collection Hotels will add The Habitation Jouissant – a boutique hotel located in Cap Haitien, Haiti – to its impressive global portfolio in the fourth quarter of 2017.
The property, located in Haiti’s second largest city and situated on the country’s northern coast, will be Autograph Collection’s third hotel in the Caribbean and will proudly serve as Marriott International’s second property in Haiti – following the highly anticipated opening of the Marriott Port-Au-Prince Hotel in early 2015.
As part of its transformation, Habitation Jouissant will undergo a comprehensive overhaul to include the addition of 87 guestrooms, bringing the guestroom total to 100 rooms with the property’s 13 already established suites. Once completed, the hotel will feature a new presidential suite, two restaurants, two pools, a fitness center and meeting rooms – all marked with one-of-a kind programs and amenities.
Originally built in 1959, the historic property was later acquired as a private residence by Haiti’s recognized Béliard family. In 2011, the residence was converted into a charming bed and breakfast and the following year, eight rooms were added for a total of 13 suites. The property also boasts a restaurant and a bar, which is an established favorite among both locals and visitors.
