PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (Dec. 14, 2017)—Travelers interested in exploring the rich cultural history of the French-Creole Caribbean nation of Haiti are being wooed by one of its distinguished hotels.

Located in the capital, Port-au-Prince, the 60-year-old Le Plaza Hotel, a 95-room boutique property, wants travelers in North America, Europe and beyond to experience the diverse offerings of the country that, along with the Dominican Republic, is on the island of Hispaniola.

“We are increasing our marketing activity to show travelers what makes us unique and special in the Caribbean,” said Marc Pierre-Louis, general manager of Le Plaza Hotel.

At Le Plaza Hotel, guests can bask in warm Haitian hospitality, exceptionally high levels of guest service and organic ambience. The family run hotel offers comfort and convenience with an outdoor pool, fitness room, business center and internet access in all rooms and public areas.

The property, which hosts a live twoubadou band Sunday nights, is gearing up for a strong winter season with special offers to celebrate the holidays, including entertainment and festivities for everyone.

“Le Plaza is continually revitalizing our hospitality product and experience to showcase our rich history and culture, including the incredible artistic repertoire of the Haitian people,” Pierre-Louis reported, noting that today’s discerning travelers are looking for more than sun, sand and sea.

The hotel is just a few minutes’ drive from the iconic Mupanah (Musée du Panthéon National Haïtien), the National Museum of Art and Marché de Fer (a public market dating back to 1889), which guests are encouraged to visit.

In addition to learning about Haiti’s history, visitors can get a taste of authentic Haitian Creole cuisine at Le Plaza. “We offer a holistic travel experience, and we look forward to welcoming many more travelers from around the world, including members of our vast Haitian Diaspora,” Pierre-Louis stated.
