“Excellent”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

have been staying at the Sheraton for over 35 years. During this time it has been Sheraton, Melia, something else and now is back to Sheraton, and now it has turn into and excellent hotel. It has been re-decorated it is luxurious and homey at the same time. There are conversation niches at the entrance the fabulous lobby and different places, that you may just one to hang around there. The view from my room was fantastic and the beds extremely comfortable. The chef at the restaurant can prepare the best Dominican food that you can find around the city as well as International / Continental Cuisine.

During my stay I met a gentleman that have been staying there for forty years, and since it was his birthday on that day I notice that every employee will stop over chat with him and wish him happy birthday making his day special and meaningful. That is the kind of staff that every hotel must aspire to have. The staff at the Sheraton Santo Domingo is exceptional some of them has been working there for over 30 years; they are friendly, helpful, and very professional. I congratulate the manager of the hotel for achieving and maintaining such a wonderful group of caring, hard working and professional staff.

Room Tip: the higher the room is the view is better.

This is an excellent hotel with an exceptional staff whom help to make this the best trip every. The food was great and the hotel was great but it was that really help make this the best trip every by ensuring I was happy with my room and all of the hotel servies. I rarely write hotel reviews but I had to share my excitment with others looking for an excellent hotel. Thanks to all those at the Shearton Hotel front desk - Massiel, Gisselle, Jennifer, Luis Miguel and Rosigna for your hospitality and Abraham (whom was in training) was excellent as well and had the best smile and offered the best conversations and suggested great places to visit. I will be back soon and will stay at the Shearton. Gisselle...thanks to you as well again for suggestioning other parts of the island that I need to visit and I am in your country often. THANKS ALL!!!!

My family and I had a great exirience while at the Santo DOmingo SHeraton hotel. With extemely comfortable beds and an awesome pool that closes at 9pm ( :D), there was nothing that could've made our expirence better. We were attended very quickly and professionally by our friends at the front desk, Gisselle greeted us with a beautiful smile and kindly checked us in. In the morning, Rafael brought our yummy breakfast in no time, the american breakfast is SOOO good! As we were leaving Luis, who welcomed us as we first arrived, took our luggage back to our car and wished us safe travels to our next destination, i think i'll miss him the most!! It was great, cant wait to come back!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing south have th ebest views of the BEAUTIFUL Santo Domingo waters.

I have had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful place for just over a week and while its location is great and the hotel itself has a great design and aesthetic, I very much have to say the excellent rating is due to its staff. Now while I can't vouch for all, I must point out if you seek any assistance Gisselle and Maciel will go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. As a frequent traveler Im a bit discerning, or rather finicky and needy, and any discrepancy or issue that's caused me an issue has been rapidly and resolutely dealt with by these two ladies. Anyways what I'm trying to say is if you are lucky enough to be on this wonderful island come stay at the Sheraton, Maciel and Gisselle will be happy to help you. And yes the hotel is okay too ;).

P.S. Actually the hotel is great, it has an awesome gym and a nice pool.
