Another new hotel brand is coming to the Caribbean.

A new Homewood Suites by Hilton is coming to the Dominican Republic’s capital, the product of a joint venture between Proinversión and TVP Management.

The project, which is slated for completion in the third quarter of 2017, will include 120 rooms.

It will be the brand’s first hotel in the Caribbean and part of a wider Caribbean and Latin America prototype, according to the company.

“The signing of Homewood Suites by Hilton Santo Domingo is a great milestone as it introduces a new Hilton Worldwide brand to the Caribbean and our third hotel in the Dominican Republic,” said Tom Potter, senior vice president, Caribbean, Mexico and Latin America, Hilton Worldwide. “This agreement helps pave the way for further Homewood Suites by Hilton expansion opportunities in the Caribbean and Latin America.”

Homewood Suites is an all-suite, extended-stay brand. The Santo Domingo property will be located on the capital’s Winston Churchill avenue.

The Santo Domingo property will include 120 studio, one- and two-bedroom suites, all of which will include kitchens and living and sleeping zones.

“Homewood Suites is strongly focused on creating adaptable prototypes that provide owners the flexibility they need to meet market demands,” said Bill Duncan, global head, Homewood Suites by Hilton. “Entering the Caribbean, the brand paid specific attention to the communal spaces to deliver on our promise to create a unique sense of destination.”
