Sheraton Hotels has returned to the Dominican Republic with the opening of Sheraton Santo Domingo Hotel.
Formerly known as Melia Santo Domingo, the newly renovated hotel offers 255 luxurious rooms and suites with breathtaking ocean views. Hoteles Nacionales, owner and operator of the property, completed a comprehensive $12 million renovation to implement all the Sheraton brand’s signature services and amenities prior to flying the Sheraton flag. Sheraton Santo Domingo Hotel is Starwood’s third property in the Dominican Republic, joining the recently opened Four Points by Sheraton Punta Cana Village and The Westin Punta Cana Resort & Club.
Sheraton Santo Domingo Hotel is ideally located on Avenida George Washington, the city’s luxurious waterfront avenue lined with palm trees, hotels, casinos and boutiques. Just five minutes from the heart of downtown Santo Domingo, the hotel is walking distance to the city’s Colonial Center, 15 minutes from the business district and a 30 minute drive from Las Americas International Airport (SDQ). Highlights of the hotel include a large casino, an outdoor swimming pool and five-star dining.
The hotel’s renovated lobby features the signature “[email protected](R) experience with Microsoft®” – a relaxed space with complimentary wireless broadband where guests can socialize and connect with friends, both old and new. All guest rooms were refurbished and outfitted with the all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper® bed, designed to meet AAA’s Five Diamond Award® criteria, an oversized work desk, ergonomic chair, high-speed Internet and 42-inch flat panel television. Sheraton Club guests enjoy upgraded amenities, as well as complimentary breakfast, beverages and evening hors d’oeuvres in the newly renovated Sheraton Club Lounge.
An ideal choice for business meetings, weddings and social functions, Sheraton Santo Domingo Hotel offers 22,500 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space including 11 conference rooms.
