Tapestry Collection by Hilton has announced the signing of ROK Hotel, Kingston, representing the brand’s debut in the Caribbean. Slated to open in 2020, the 168-room property, owned by PanJam Investment Limited, sits in a multi-purpose complex on the Kingston Waterfront and will include retail, on-site entertainment and commercial office spaces.
Under redevelopment to further revitalize the Kingston Waterfront, the 12-story building originally opened in 1977 as the Oceana Hotel. Now, it is being transformed into ROK, a contemporary hotel in Downtown Kingston, offering guests access to the National Gallery of Jamaica and the historic landmark Port Royal.
Located on Ocean Boulevard overlooking the Kingston Harbour, the property will include a pool deck on its first floor, as well as a fitness center, lounge area, restaurant, cafe and bar. ROK Kingston will offer flexible space for meetings and events, and will also serve as an accommodation option for guests attending events at the Jamaica Conference Center across the street.
Hilton currently has a portfolio of nearly 150 hotels and resorts open to welcome travelers in the Caribbean and Latin America, including more than 20 hotels across the Caribbean. In its 100th year, the company currently has nearly 90 hotels throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, including two Tapestry Collection properties in Peru – Hotel Bel’Arte Lima and Hotel Museo de Osma slated to open in 2021.
ROK Hotel, Kingston, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, will also participate in Hilton Honors, the guest loyalty program for Hilton’s 17 distinct hotel brands.
