Jamaica Pegasus Hotel

I remember growing up in Kingston often visiting the prestigious hotel. The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel was and still is one of the most elite hotels on the island. The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel is located 20 minutes from the Norman Manley International Airport, in the heart of Kingston's financial and business district. The Pegasus offers a magnificent view of the scenic cultural center, Emancipation Park, and is within walking distance of various international offices, embassies, historical and cultural centers, shopping areas and restaurants.

The closest rival to this hotel is the Hilton. Well, to be honest I spent more time at the Hilton then the Pegasus. The Pegasus was more for the snooty folks living in Jamaica and the business tourist. I recall back in the 70's when they almost shut the hotel down because the United States accused Jamaica of harboring Fidel Castro there. Well, to be honest they probably were, but you didn't hear that from me.
