NEEDHAM, Massachusetts, US ( – Haiti’s newest hotel, The Marriott Port-au-Prince, has received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2015–2016, its first year in operation. The award recognizes outstanding service and hospitality as determined by consumer reviews posted on, the world’s largest travel website with more than 200 million unique visitors per-month.

“The first year for any hotel is often the most challenging, particularly in the area of service delivery. To be recognized in this way by our customers is a tremendous honour and an even stronger testament to our commitment to hiring local associates,” said Ellen Wouters, General Manager of the Marriott Port-au-Prince.

“Our staff truly cares about their country and the quality of experience each and every guest enjoys here. This award is proof positive of that.”

A collaboration between Marriott International, Clinton Global Initiatives and Digicel Group, the US$45 million Marriott Port-au-Prince opened in February last year, instantly earning a place among the top city hotels in the Caribbean.
