About Fort Young Hotel Dominica
A 50 minute drive from Douglas-Charles airport. Fort Young Hotel Dominica was once the Fort Young, the major military installation of Dominica, and named after the first British Governor, William Young when it was first built in 1699. Built on a hill formed from a volcanic eruption many thousands of years ago, the Fort Young has been at the heart of Dominica’s story for several hundred years. It became a hotel in 1964. The reception lobby was once the Main Guard. The stone that sits to the right of the Hotel entrance was the mounting block on which soldiers stood to mount their horses. The Magazine where gunpowder was once stored is now The Vault, the main conference room. And the officers’ quarters are where the hotel’s offices now stand, running along the centre of the main courtyard.
