Hotelier Kevin Hendrickson will spend up to US$45 million ($5.48 billion) on the refurbishment of the former and idle Wyndham Kingston hotel, which he purchased at auction in 2014.
This was disclosed by the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment, after Hendrickson showed off an artist’s rendition of the interior of the hotel to Minister Dr Wykeham McNeill and Jamaica Tourist Board Chairman Dennis Morrison, and later confirmed by the hotelier’s group director of marketing and sales, Nicola Madden-Greig.
The tourism officials met with the hotelier at the neighbouring Courtleigh Hotel & Suites, which Hendrickson also owns.
The hotel repairs are estimated at around US$35 million to US$45 million, which Madden-Greig confirmed as the price tag for just phase one of what will be a three-phase project.
