Construction on the new Marriott Hotel Port Au Prince in Haiti has passed another milestone with a topping-off ceremony, Marriott reports. The hotel is expected to open in early 2015. 

Aimed largely at business travelers, the 175-room property will include five suites, a casual restaurant with private dining area, fitness center, swimming pool and a great room lobby that inspires creativity, productivity and social interaction with its conveniently dispersed zones including a bar and lounge. The property will also have a gift shop and marketplace and will offer guests 24 hour room service, Wi-Fi and secure parking.
