Carlton Savannah Hotel

Reading the newspaper headlines today stating that Queen Elizabeth II and her entourage is allegedly staying at the new Carlton Savannah Hotel in Cascade I realize my review of the hotel was never done, as promised, so let me rectify that now.

I stayed at the Carlton Savannah a couple months ago and the most outstanding thing about the hotel apart from the chic decor and huge rooms is the service. It is really a very pleasant and welcoming surprise to have such great service which is not always the case in customer oriented business in Trinidad,unfortunately.

Location wise the Carlton Savannah is ideal for those coming for Carnival as it is very close to the Queen's Park Savannah. The spot it is on used to be the location of the infamous Pelican Inn , a favourite watering hole of mine back in the day. The car park for the hotel is located across the street, which is the only caveat, but space is limited so I guess they retained the original car park set up from the Pelican era. There is valet parking however, so you do not even need to park your car yourself.

The rooms are nice and spacious, if you are into the whole boutique vibe you get that aplenty at the Carlton with it's contemporary furnishings, like a platform bed, and totally gorgeous modern bathroom! Trust me, when you see the bathroom you will know exactly what I mean by gorgeous.


There are two restaurants and also a bar at the hotel, one restaurant is casual while the other is fine dining. A narrow pool is available for guests, complete with lounging areas and poolside service if you desire.


Overall a fantastic stay was had at the Carlton, they do have Carnival rates and packages so if you are still looking for a hotel you can give them a call or email, contact information can be found on their website. Rates are on par with the other hotels in it's class, read not CHEAP, but hey if it is fit enough for a Queen you know it is worth it!
