To start off I am a dominican who has lived all her life between Santo Domingo and Punta Cana but recently I decided to shake things up by staying at a hotel rather than visiting my mothers house for the weekend. After much researching, I picked this hotel because of it's location. I love the Colonial Zone and this location is just 1 block away from the Cathedral (for sightseeing), The Hard Rock Cafe Santo Domingo and many other small restaurants/bars within literally STEPS away from the front door.
My experience with the hotel itself was good. Everybody from the security guard up-front to the waiter who delivered my room service was friendly, they looked eager and happy to make your stay a good one. My check-in process was flawless, Santos gave me my key right away and I proceeded to take a look at my room. I took a standard and (like most things) it looked way bigger in the pictures. The bed AMAZING, mind you, I went to sleep, thats it. A/C kept my room freezing cold (loved that!!!) and with Cable TV and room service? Please... best 1 night vacation i'ved had all my life!!
As for what I'd like to see differently on my next stay? Toiletries would be nice. Also, when I ordered room service, the menu they have in the room doesn't give you many options, you can always order from the restaurant downstairs and they can bring it to your room, so a copy of that menu in the bedroom would be nice. I guess, that's about it!
For what I wanted I'd say I got my money's worth. I would stay there again, 1 or 2 nights tops.
