Hilton’s Embassy Suites brand has opened a new hotel in Santo Domingo.
The new property in the Dominican Republic’s capital is a 150-suite, new-build hotel in part of the Silver Sun Gallery complex in the city’s business district.
“We are thrilled to bring the Embassy Suites by Hilton brand to Santo Domingo,” said John Rogers, global head for Embassy Suites Hotels, in a statement. “The brand delivers a strong value proposition that resonates with both leisure and business travelers and we are confident the hotel will thrive in the nation’s capital and commercial hub.”
The property is located in the tallest building in the city on Avenida Tiradentes.
“We are excited to open our second Hilton Worldwide hotel in Santo Domingo, a perfect complement to our already successful Hilton Santo Domingo,” said Danny Hughes, senior vice president for the Caribbean, Mexico and Latin America at Hilton Worldwide.
The property includes more than 22,500 square feet of indoor space.
It is the second major brand to debut in Santo Domingo this year, following the recent opening of the city’s new Sheraton hotel.
