The Spanish court hotel is a midsized, but beautifully designed hotel located in the heart of New Kingston. It isnt on Knutsford blvd, (one block over) but who cares, as it caters to those of us who have discriminating taste and are looking for nice amentities and a feeling of being home.
This hotel surpassed all my expectations. First and foremost, I have to commend certain staff members for going above and beyond to make my stay an enjoyable one. Much ado goes out to Mrs. Chin, Rohan, and Marlon, who went above and beyond in my humble estimation. As a business owner myself, its staff like these that you aim to hire, and to keep, as they work tirelessly and almost seemlessly to make one feel comfortable in every which way. Another honorable mention should also go out to Suzanne, who works at the front desk. She was sweet and demure, and it was just wonderful dealing with her everyday.
One thing I have noted in most reviews, is the lack of mention of the great breakfast that is served each day. They list it as a continental breakfast. This isnt a continental breakfast . This is a full fledged breakfast fit for a king! They have breads, such as banana bread, caribbean breads, cereals, yogurt, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, hot tea, jamaican coffee, pineapple juices, blended juices. Its a nice spread each morning, with wonderful staff members who come personally to your table, to serve you coffee , tea or juices. I must also add, that all of this in included in the price.
One thing I also have to comment on, is, that the rooms are a bit on the tiny side, but they are still nice though. They weren’t dated, as most other hotels, which would have been a major problem for me. They are newer and in each room, there is a flat screen tv. I think that this must have been around a 42 or possibly a 46 inch, but my guess was 42 inch. Either way, my husband was delighted, as we have a 42 inch at home, and this made him feel right at home!
Another thing that made me extremely happy, was that this place offers free (can I say *free* again?) laptops to all guests. Now you tell me. I have heard about free wi-fi, but free laptop usage?; now that’s an added bonus in anybodys book.!
One downer though. Two of the young staff at the front desk I did avoid. Felt that they were too young to understand the nuisances of running a good hotel, but other than that, the ones that did, (the ones listed above) made the stay there very much worth while.
For those of you that want to have peaceful stay, choose this place. Its new from what I gather, but it’s a good place. They have weekend specials rates , so if you are calling from the USA like I did, ask for it.
I havent been to Kingston in 30 years, and I was a bit apprehensive as I heard all this stuff about the crime, so I needed to stay somewhere safe. This place is it. You really will like it, believe me. If you need to venture out, ask for Mr Johnson. He's one of the tour guys on the property. Accept no other, as he was an awesome person to deal with.
Again, to the wonderful staff at The Spanish court hotel. My humble and most sincerest thanks, for making me and hubby's trip pleasurable and memorable. Be well, and continue to do all that you do! Know that you guys are truly appreciated!
