Company House Hotel of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands Reopens after Multi-Million Dollar Renovation
Renovations preserve history, blend modern amenities to offer a boutique business hotel in heart of the historic waterfront town of Christiansted
Originally constructed prior to 1760, the Company House Hotel has been owned by 28 owners with diversified ethnic and racial backgrounds. It has been operated under different names over the years including The Danish Manor and Charthouse. The hotel was operational until January 2018 when VIGL Operations started renovations on the three-story property.
The hotel's history included stints as a boarding house in the 1800s where professionals would stay and promote their services including dentistry, watch and clock making, and daguerreotype. Historic newspaper ads are on display at the hotel. The hotel also was home to Tutto Bene, a popular Italian restaurant from 1991 until 2003. Guests are invited to unwind and connect at the new Duke's Bar, managed by the successful 40 Strand Group which also owns 40 Strand, Toast, The Mill on the Boardwalk, and RAW bar. Guests will find examples of local culture through artwork by local artists, colonial style mahogany furniture, and historic images of the island and town.
The hotel will be adding special experiences and packages that promote Christiansted town's history and island culture. Starting in January 2019, the hotel will offer "In Good Company" - a series of gatherings for guests and interested parties featuring local business leaders. These conversational meet-ups allow business owners to share their tips and ideas to guests, community members, and entrepreneurs. Held the first Tuesday of each month, "In Good Company" meet-ups will include meet-ups with local entrepreneurs and business owners. Other events will include rum tastings and event proceeds will go to the St. Croix Community Foundation fund for historic preservation.
