When US Vice President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping visited the Caribbean, they both went to Trinidad. That’s because over the years the country has become the de facto business capital of the region, led by its booming energy sector. And it’s also led to the development to one of the Caribbean’s best business hotel offerings. These are the best places to stay for business travelers in Trinidad.
Hyatt Regency Trinidad
This is the Caribbean’s leading business hotel — a haven for top-level conferences and meetings and a well-run property that has everything you need in one place: a terrific sushi restaurant, a waterfront bar that’s one of the city’s hot spots for movers and shakers and high-standard rooms. The total package. And the rooftop infinity pool is the perfect place to unwind.
This locally-owned hidden gem combines the needs of business travelers with a homey, down-to-earth vibe. The 94-room hotel just a short walk from the Queen’s Park Savannah is also home to the wonderful Kava restaurant.
Radisson Hotel Trinidad
The newest property on this list (set at the former Capital Plaza property), the Radisson is an affordable, well-appointed option with a total of 243 rooms, a fitness centre, two restaurants and a revolving restaurant on the rooftop of the hotel called 360 Degrees.
Courtyard By Marriott
Courtyard is always an oasis for business travelers around the world, and that’s particularly true at their hotels in the Caribbean. The brand’s Port of Spain outpost has 119 guestrooms with enough space to work and, more crucially, the kind of Wi-Fi business travelers live and breathe by.
Hilton Trinidad and Conference Centre
Just outside of the capital’s downtown area, the 418-room Hilton is a kind of mix of resort and convention hotel, with space for large indoor and outdoor events. And its lush location means a great welcome after a long day’s work downtown.
