Blackstone sells Hilton Rose Hall in Jamaica

Aimbridge Hospitality has been tapped to manage the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa in Jamaica following the acquisition of the property by Sagicor.

The property was put on the market last year by investment firm Blackstone. Sagicor owns three other hotel properties in Jamaica.

The move is effective immediately; the hotel will continue to operate as the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa, although it will be managed by Aimbridge.
