“Dream Wedding”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I got married in this Hotel on July 27th and was all that ever dreamed of and more. I am from the Dominican Republic. There was a lot my guest that stayed at the hotel visiting from USA. Everyone loved the hotel and had no complains. The morning of my wedding I need to get my dress steam and the staff helped right away and I had my dress with no wrinkles in about an hour. The service at The Garden Tent (reception of the weeding) was perfect from the food and staff. El Embajador lived on the hype

Recently stayed at the hotel in Santo Domingo, and I was very pleased with the hotel. The hotel recently renovated, spacious and elegant rooms. New design of the lobby and all common areas. Good food and service. The staff was attentive and pleasant. I would highly recommend this hotel for business or vacations.

The staff of this hotel go to extremes to make you feel at home. They always address you by your name, and welcome you with an honest smile. The restaurants are also great, with a varied menu (hint: the codfish fillet with caper sauce is exquisite). I've been going there for years. The hotel was recently refurbished and they did a very nice job.

Room Tip: 1) Ask for the refurbished rooms. 2) Unless you like parrots ask for the south side, it's quiet...

The service is polite, solicitous and helpful. Good food. The spacious rooms, common spaces and general facilities have been recently renovated and actualized. A business and family hotel that invites to disconnection after work. Highly recommended. A must when staying in Santo Domingo.

Nice pool, nice breakfast, nice conference rooms, nice rooms as well. Only thing is, the hotel cabs charge double than what they would charge if you call your own, so be mindful of that. Other than that, great hotel in Santo Domingo.

Our company made an event here and it was great! The service, the food, the attentions were excellent! Specially Rachel Caceres, Elsa Reyes & Mr. Vittini were very polite and eager to help! The recent renovation made by the hotel is beautiful, it seems clean, modern and smell very good!

I have stayed in this hotel many times over the past years - until recently it was showing signs of needing some upgrades. I checked in on 9 September and was told I had been placed in an upgraded and refurbished room - when I got there I could smell the newness - better design and layout plus new bathroom (although they need still to address the smell from the wet shower curtain).
Overall my experience was far better than in recent times in the "old" rooms.
The staff also appear to be making a big effort to please the guests.
A good thumbs up.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for an renovated room.
