SALISBURY, Md. -- Marshall Hotels & Resorts made agreements with separate owners to manage the 160-room Windward Passage Hotel, in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, and to provide consulting services related to the conversion of the former Four Points by Sheraton to the 107-room Wyndham Garden at Palmas del Mar, in Humacao, Puerto Rico.
“We believe the Caribbean market is on the rebound and that Marshall can effectively leverage its resort operating expertise to create greater returns for owners,” said Mike Marshall, president and CEO. “We began developing strong relationships with hoteliers in Puerto Rico and St. Thomas five years ago. We look forward to further strengthening our ties in the Caribbean.”
Windward Passage Hotel in St. Thomas overlooks Charlotte Amalie Harbor and it is centrally located one block from some of the island’s top restaurants, discos, duty-free shops and across the street from inter-island ferries and seaplanes.
“The hotel is doing well and is a popular meeting place for top government and local business officials in the U.S. Virgin Islands,” Marshall noted. “Guest room renovations are progressing steadily, with nearly half already completed. We also have been asked to re-concept and redesign the restaurant space, which will be part of a larger plan we will implement to take this property to the next level.”
Wyndham Garden at Palmas del Mar, is located in a 2,700-acre planned community with golf, tennis, beach, equestrian and marina amenities, the property is near Palmas del Mar Beach and Palmas del Mar Golf Course.
