Champions of the Champ de Mars


One place that’s a definite "must-see" when in Port-au-Prince it’s the Champ de Mars. Located about a five-minute walk form our Port-au-Prince hotel, the Champ de Mars is a square that houses the National Museum of Haiti as well as several congress houses and the ruins of the National Palace. The central place for events like carnivals, Carifesta and other parades and festivities, the square is still a popular spot on any given day, great for people-watching and filled with vendors as well as talented street artists with unique souvenirs for visitors to buy. Whether you’re there to shop or just walk, the Champ de Mars is one of the nicest places in the city to do it. 

Address: Place Jean-Jacques Dessalines, Port-au-Prince

    I really enjoyed the family atmosphere at Leplaza hotel . Every single staff was very nice courteous, helpful , professional from the security guards to the receptionists , the staffs at the bar and restaurant . I had the greatest times of my life because everyone make feels at home especially at the reception and the bar- restaurant . I strongly recommend Leplaza Hotel . My rooms were nicely cleaned daily .

  • “Oasis”

    Located off the central town square it has good security and is the obvious expat place to stay. Nice garden breakfast area near a well received pool. Tranquil after the huddle and bustle outside. Rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable and the hot showers a blessing.

  • “Highly Recommended”

    A very pleasant atmosphere and helpful staff greeted me upon arrival. Vladimir, who quickly handled my special requests, was especially helpful. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel for all travelers, whether on business or vacation.

  • “Great Haitian atmosphere”

    We really enjoyed this property. The staff was very friendly and even went out of their way to accommodate us, by letting us check in early after flying all night. The atmosphere was very laid back just as most Haitians are.
