“The best in Kingston”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

I have stayed at this hotel on business various times now, and it is without doubt the best in Kingston. The rooms are comortable and well-equipped, restaurant is excellent, and whilst the choice at breakast may be said by some to be limited - full marks for the offering of nuts and raisins along with the tropical fruits!

The main reason I can't give five stars remains the Sky Terrace bar: visit after dark and it's like there has been a power cut. I don't mind discreet lighting, but none at all means that businessmen can't read their files (yes I know, boring), it's impossible to see what you are eating or drinking, and when the bill appears you cannot see what to fill in without a torch....

It wouldn't cost much to install some modest lighting - are there any objections?

Room Tip: If you are a smoker, try to get a room on the 2nd floor - preferably close to the bar, where smoking...

For business or pleasure this is the best place to stay in Kingston. Great service from the moment you arrive, friendly staff and good food. This is a relatively small hotel in terms of features but is more than adequate if you are staying on business. Small but well equipped fitness room. Rooms are clean and comfortable and have everything you need. Internet is free and works well.

We highly enjoyed the short stay at the Spanish Court for great sleeping quality (after tavelling). However, some staff members, especially waiters, could sometimes have make more concerted efforts when providing their indispensible services.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the courtyard (avoid the ones towards the main street).

We stayed for a couple of nights at this beautiful hotel in New Kingston. The rate was very affordable for a family of 4. Things that stood out were: Spotless rooms and shared areas, unbeatable " continental breakfast" which was included in the cost. The breakfast had something that would please every type of traveller including little ones and did not leave the person out who prefers some local Jamaican food. Was just fabulous. The hotel is quite contemporary which fits my personal taste. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Did not use the Zen spa or pool. Free WiFi on the premises and business center for more involved tasks such as printing, etc. Drains were a little slow which I told them at end of the visit. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I frequently travel to Kingston and Spanish Court Hotel is always my first pick. I enjoy staying in this Hotel, I truly feel its a home away from home. They always have a warm welcome, great smiles and the best service in Kingston. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the restaurant has a very good menu and the food is very good. I highly recommend this hotel.
