The King Christian Hotel has been welcoming visitors to St.Croix for over 200 years. Shopping, dining, entertainment, diving, fishing, sailing, and historical sites are all found within a leisurely walk around the harbor area. Originally used as a warehouse, the building has been a barracks for the Danish Gendarmes, headquarters for the Harbor Masters and a haven for Sea Captains and other visiting sailors. Legend has it that ship captains often accepted the dock masters hospitality in his quarters upstairs, above the warehouse. Here, the captain could enjoy fine hospitality and an evening in Christiansted town and still keep an eye on his boat. Todays hotel has undergone extensive renovations in the past ten years. The King Christian offers a full list of amenities including a newly refurbished pool and courtyard. As you look out over the balcony or out the window from your room, other historic buildings surround you.
