The United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands owns and operates a small hotel in Kingston, near to King’s House, which is quite convenient for visits to the U.S. Embassy and in close proximity to a number of other offices, medical establishments, etc., that people from Cayman need to get to, including:
- The Radiation Centre
- The Andrews Memorial Hospital
- The University of the West Indies Hospital (and campus)
- Nutall Hospital
- Canadian Embassy
- British High Commission
It is also very conveniently located to attractions like the Bob Marley Museum and Devon House.
The rooms are large, the hotel is clean and the staff are all friendly, helpful and courteous. It is quiet and while not for those looking for excitement, would probably be very suitable for those seeking comfortable, decent hotel accommodations. The hotel is fully air conditioned; rooms all have hot and cold water, full bathrooms, cable TV and telephone. You may book directly or by giving your travel agent directions to do so (the Hotel pays commission to Travel Agents in the normal course of business).
