First Marriott Hotel to open in Turgeau, Haiti in 2014, thanks to Bill Clinton and DIGICEL

The bell ringing that "Haiti is open for Business" sounded very loud this week as Marriott International announced that it will open its first hotel in the area of Turgeau in Port-au-Prince Haiti. The 173-room, $45 million Marriott Hotel is expected to be open in 2014.


With some convincing work coming on the part of Former US President Bill Clinton and DIGICEL Team, Marriott International has decided to be among the first in the revival of Haiti after the 2010 earthquake in the area of tourism.

The new Marriott in Port-au-Prince will be able to provide needed jobs to the population and lodging for the tourist industry which is expected to take off within the next few years in Haiti. The Hotel is to be equipped with restaurants and meeting space for non-government organizations, relief agencies and other groups.

Turgeau is located in Port-au-Prince, Ouest Department, Haiti.
Cities and towns near Turgeau include Canape Vert, Bourdon, Delmas and Deprez.
