I was travelling to Kingston for business when I stayed at the Altamont Court Hotel. This was my first trip to Jamaica, and the client had made all the travel arrangements including my flight, hotel, and taxi service.
When we arrived at the hotel, I noticed that it had an extremely small lobby. They had a small sitting area there so people could wait on taxis. The check in process was quick and the staff were friendly. There was a small area for buying snacks and other sundries, but it didn't have much of a selection.
There were no elavators at the hotel, and I had to take my bag up three flights of stairs to get to my room. The room itself had high ceilings and a four poster bed. It had a flat panel television mounted on the wall and a small round table beside the window. There was also a small refrigerator. The internet connection in the room was a little slow, but it worked enough for what I needed. The air conditioning in the room took a while to adjust the room temperature due to the high ceilings, but you could turn on the ceiling fans or open a window if the room got too stuffy.
The hotel had a restaurant, a bar, and a pool. The few times I visited the restaurant or the bar, they were mostly empty. I am not sure if this was because the hotel had a low occupancy during my trip or if people were choosing to eat and drink somewhere else.
I'm not really sure what was near the hotel as I did not venture out except to go to work in the morning and return to the hotel at night. It seemed that every business had gates for security, and this hotel was no exception. The gate ran the complete perimeter of the hotel and there was a security guard at the one entrance at all times.
