Rumor of a new St. John hotel

TripAdvisor’s St. John forum has this tasty: “I have been hearing from Westin employees about a rumor that the defunct Pond Bay development was purchased by Starwood and a W hotel will be built."

The Westin is a Starwood property.

While the idea of a big new resort may not be to everyone’s liking, there are few who would not say the abandoned construction site at Chocolate Hole is a real eyesore.

Pondbay 8686
, a contributor to TripAdvisor's island forum and, I believe a real estate agent, says she has heard the rumor,too.  She doubts that Starwood would do a lot of new construction.  Rather, she believes, Starwood might complete the buildings that are there now, add a pool and some landscaping. “But it is all just rumor at this point,” she added.

  1. Search for Westin St. John on Google Maps. It will return two locations: one at the current WSJ location and the other at the intersection of Pond Bay Rd. and Tradewinds Rd.
