The best places to stay in Trinidad.

The Five Best Trinidad Hotels

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - February 8, 2017

Whether you’re on the island for Carnival, for business or just looking for one of the Caribbean’s great foodie destinations, there’s something for everyone in Trinidad.

But with the island in many ways still under the radar for seasoned travelers, it’s no surprise that all of Trinidad’s best hotels are concentrated in the greater Port of Spain area, as this is one of the Caribbean’s great metropolitan areas. CJ Travel Editor Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon brings you the the five best Trinidad hotels.

The infinity pool is a must.

Hyatt Regency Trinidad Sleek and contemporary with an enviable waterfront location, this 428-room city slicker is our top pick for sophisticated “feterans.” Features we love: the rooftop ocean-view pool; free WI-FI; and the scrumptious lobby lounge sushi bar.

A balcony suite at the Kapok.

Kapok Hotel For almost half a century, this restaurant-turned-94-room boutique has been offering shelter to “bacchanalists” bone-tired after hours on “de road.” Guests praise the free buffet breakfast; spacious rooms; and convenient location, walking distance from Carnival’s hub, Queen’s Park Savannah.

Poolside at the Hilton.

Hilton Trinidad & Conference Centre Whether for bacchanal or business, this hotel ticks all the boxes, with city views; balconied rooms; a pool; and a pair of restaurants and 24-hour room service for pre- and post-fete fueling.

Where to lounge at the hotel.

Carlton Savannah You couldn’t ask for a better location than this historic hotel, which has welcomed Queen Elizabeth II in the past and now shelters revelers in its 157 cozy rooms. Two onsite restaurants, complimentary WI-FI and concierge services add up to a comfortable Carnival oasis.

Where to stay in Trinidad.

Courtyard Port of Spain If you just want a safe, clean and comfortable place to stay, consider the 119-room city location of Marriott’s Courtyard brand, which offers all the essentials (a restaurant; pool; gym and free bottled water and WI-FI) at a value-for-money rate.
