The Hyatt Place brand is coming to the Dominican Republic’s capital of Santo Domingo, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The first-ever Hyatt Place in the country will open in the third quarter of 2024, according to a statement from Hyatt Hotels Corporation.
The 120-room Hyatt Place Santo Domingo Piantini will be set in the heart of the capital’s commercial and financial hub.
Construction on the project is set to begin this year; the newest Hyatt Place will join four existing Hyatt Place properties in the wider Caribbean region.
“We are thrilled to announce plans to introduce the Hyatt Place brand in the Dominican Republic and expand the brand’s footprint in the Caribbean through the development of this new hotel in such a prominent location in Santo Domingo,” said Camilo Bolaños, Vice President of Development and Real Estate for Latin America and the Caribbean at Hyatt. “Hyatt Place hotels offer high-energy professionals who want to balance their priorities and get the most out of their stay, so they can get the most out of their lives.”
The project will be built by Constructora Aybar and Contemega, set in Santo Domingo’s Ensanche Piantini location.
The new project comes as Santo Domingo continues to grow as a travel destination, with a surge in airlift and a new effort by the country’s tourism officials to reposition the city.
