“Good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at Spanish court hotel during a business trip. I was pleasantly surprise, the rooms have been recently renoved with a modern style, the location is very convenient, the staff is well trained to attend guests. I had dinner at the restaurant and was quite good for a hotel. I found the gym is too small and with little equipment, not very inviting for the guest (a Spa hotel could do better)

Stayed June 2013, traveled on business

Just got married in Kingston, and I spent the night before and after my wedding here before we went off to Montego Bay. While I have been to Spanish Court on several occasions for business meeting and lunch, this was my first time sleeping there.

The hotel is very stylish, food is great and staff are the best!

I just returned from a wonderful working trip in Kingston, and was fortunate to be put up at the Spanish Court. Having stayed at other Kingston hotels, the Spanish Court is clearly the elite of Kingston accommodation. While the place was certainly stylish, sometimes I felt style trumped function -- the pool feels more like a water feature than a place you'd like to swim laps, the wash basins are chic but tiny, and do we really need a glass of champagne while checking in? But these are minor quibbles. For me, what made the stay exceptional was the outstanding staff. They have clearly been well trained, but training only goes so far. There seemed to be a culture of genuine hospitality and guest focus. Every staff member I met greeted me, and any difficulty or request was dealt with promptly and efficiently. The included breakfasts were exceptional, including made-to-order omelettes and eggs and lots of fresh fruit. The restaurant, however, is very expensive. Get out of the hotel and walk to Scotchie's or Red Bones or take a cab to M10 for authentic meals at a fraction of the price.

First trip to Kingston, and very pleasantly surprised. This well run boutique hotel in the heart of Kingston is a respite from the craziness of Kingston. My room was extremely comfortable and clean. The bed was very comfortable, the wireless worked great, TV was great with a load of channels, and the air conditioning was nice and cold.

While they certainly checked all the boxes, the thing that makes this hotel special is the staff. Friendly and efficient are the best way to describe them. Kudos to management, I'm told that this is the hardest part of running a good hotel.

Room Tip: Room 215 was very good. The AC didn't blow directly on the bed, and that was a big plus for me.

We spent a night at the Spanish Court Hotel (April 12 2013). It was a very nice place. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were located on the third floor facing the road; we had an awesome view of the mountains.
The staff went out of their way to help you. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. It had fresh fruit, muffins, cereal and omelets made to order. This place is definitely a place to stay if you’re in the Kingston area.

As far as Kingston goes this is the best you can get and this is a very lovely property with a good restaurant and great service. Whenever I need to go to Kingston I always stay at the Spanish Court and I have always had a very pleasant experience. On a very recent trip I sent a new dress to be dry cleaned and this obviously was not done at the hotel. Upon receiving my dress back with a hole in it the manager asked me how much I had payed for it and handed me, in cash, without questions asked, the value of the dress. I was pleasantly surprised and even though slightly upset about the ruined dress I had to give kudos to the amazingly prompt and definitive response of the manager.
The Spanish Court is MY place in Kingston!

Room Tip: Rooms on a higher floor have more light and a better view

Kingston does not have a "really" luxury hotel, The Spanish Court has the feeling of a lovely botique hotel, even if it has many rooms. The decor is modern, simple and functional. The restaurant is very good and as the hotel it is a good value.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the third floor
