Danes returning to USVI with hotel purchase on St. Croix

CHRISTIANSTED, St. Croix -- The Danes, who sold the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) to the U.S. government for $25 million in 1917, are gaining a some ground in the Territory again -- at least in St. Croix.

A group of Danish businessmen purchased the historic King Christian Hotel in downtown Christiansted from the USVI government -- which took over the property after Hurricane Marilyn damaged it in 1995 -- and plan to transform it into a five-star property by 2007.

A new waterfront wing is under construction adjacent to the existing property, which also will open in two years.
