The St. George Hotel, once an East Jerusalem landmark, has officially reopened its doors after having been closed for more than a decade. The hotel, now known as the St. George Landmark Hotel, is in partnership with Jordan’s Landmark Hotels which will manage the refurbished 130-room, five-star hotel. Following an investment of more than US$10 million from Jerusalem Tourism Investment Company (JIT), a subsidiary of, Palestine Development and Investment Company (PADICO), the hotel has been open for business since February, but the official opening was not until this week in the presence of the main owners. JIT and PADICO bought the rights from the original owners, the Qutub family, to renovate, refurbish and run the hotel for 20 years.
