Digicel and Marriott Open Haiti Hotel

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti and BETHESDA,  - The new Marriott Port-au-Prince Hotel today checked in its first guests. Among the 200 new Haitian hotel workers who welcomed them were young people
from disadvantaged backgrounds, and Haitian-Americans who want to share their hospitality skills to help boost Haiti’s tourism economy.
The stories of these new associates include Luccardo, who was recruited to work at the hotel’s front desk from the Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs orphanage, and Hermine, who was part of the hotel’s intern program and will be an entry-level supervisor. In addition to members of a Haitian-American executive team, the Haiti Marriott is led by a veteran Marriott general manager who was previously at the Marriott Champs Elysees in Paris.
