Southampton Princess Hotel Bermuda
On 17 August 1972, two people were presented the only two keys to the Southampton Princess Hotel in Bermuda. One was given to Joseph M. Correia, builder of the Hotel, the other Key was given to my Father, Roy W. Davis.
My Father and our Family were the first people to stay as guests of the Princess and our first stay was while most of the Hotel was under construction. We first met Howard Hughes there while meeting with Daniel K. Ludwig and they offered the first finished room to us. My Father cut the ribbon to officially open the Hotel and was presented the prestigious Key to the Southampton Princess.
Today, the Southampton Princess is now the Fairmont Princess. While there have been many changes since the Princess first opened, some things have stayed the same including the Waterlot Inn.
