These hotels may not be all-inclusive like many of the resorts on the western side of the island but they certainly feature some of the qualities that make them so desirable such as multiple onsite restaurants, pools, indoor and outdoor activities, and fitness centres. The brand new ROK Hotel Kingston, Tapestry Collection by Hilton is one such hotel.

Who is the owner of the ROK hotel?

According to a hotel representative, the letters ROK in the hotel's name stand for Revival, Rebirth, and Renaissance of Kingston. Pan Jam Investment owns the 168-room hotel, which Highgate runs.

What is the tapestry brand by Hilton?

Hilton's Tapestry Collection is a collection of 90 distinctive hotels that encourage travellers to form a real connection with their travel destination by providing them with a distinctive flair and bright personality. The collection's first property in the Caribbean is the ROK Hotel Kingston.

Additionally, it has a wide pool deck for outdoor parties, six conference rooms with cutting-edge audiovisual equipment, and more than 32,000 square feet of meeting space.

Additionally, the property has 41 residential units on its upper four levels, including 13 one-bedroom, 22 two-bedroom, and six penthouse apartments that will be offered for sale to private investors.
