PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD – February 17, 2022 –The BRIX, Autograph Collection celebrates its official opening today, bringing heartfelt design and enriching experiences to the picturesque Port of Spain. The new lifestyle hotel joins Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott Bonvoy’s diverse and dynamic portfolio of independent hotels championing individuality.
The name BRIX is derived from the chemical measurement of sugar in solution – a crop with deep historical, financial, and cultural meaning for the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Like sugar in solution, The BRIX fosters chemistry in every sense of the word where guests will find “human chemistry in action”. At The BRIX, business, pleasure, friendships, and family are intertwined, resulting in a memorable experience.
Owned by the Superior Hotels Group and managed by Highgate, the hotel was designed by the Gettys Group and Sow Design Studio, featuring modern architecture inspired by its story of sugar. Featuring 161 guest rooms and suites inspired by a passion for the eclectic, The BRIX’s thoughtfully-designed rooms feature custom designed furniture, warm color palettes, and an idyllic artistic touch that reflects the history and culture of Trinidad and Tobago by promoting local artwork throughout the hotel.
Elevated food and beverage concepts can be found at The Exchange, the signature restaurant, bar, and lounge open daily. Signifying the business of Trinidad’s ports with worldwide traders, the restaurant features dishes that celebrate both, international and local cuisines as diverse as Trinidad. For guests on the go, The Merchants Grab and Go offers artisan sandwiches, specialty coffees, and afternoon cocktails. Also located on the lobby level, adjacent to the Grab and Go, is the South Beach inspired pool deck, featuring cozy cabanas and ample seating for lounging or sun-bathing. Located on the rooftop, with stunning panoramic views of the city skyline, The Sugar High Rooftop Lounge invites guests to enjoy tapas and cocktails while they take in the incredible views as the sunset dips over the Western hemisphere.
For meetings and events, The BRIX offers 2,400 sq ft of indoor meeting space, impeccably laid out across three meeting rooms. The largest meeting room, St. Madeleine, accommodates up to 100 attendees, while the Sevilla Meeting Room offers an intimate meeting setting for smaller meetings and events.
