New Marriott Property To Bring Affordable Luxury To Santo Domingo Travelers 

Santo Domingo is trending as one of the most popular destinations for cultural and historical travel in the Dominican Republic this year. More travelers are discovering the remarkable hotspot thanks to new investments in infrastructure, safety, and the quality of the city’s countries-old Ciudad Colonial

Growing demand for the emerging destination means international hospitality chains are keen to meet travelers’ need for high-quality and affordable options.

@bonvoyagejackie The Dominican Republic is a great destination for solo travelers! I spent my first week of my solo trip in the capital, Santo Domingo. La Choza Guesthouse was a great place to meet other travelers (I also met up with some people I connected with from some online solo travel groups as well) Overall, I felt very safe walking around the Zona Colonial section of the city during the day and evening as well. #solotraveler #solotravel #solotravelwoman #solofemaletravel #dominicanrepublic #santodomingo #dominicanrepublictravel #visitdominicamrepublic #solotraveltips ♬ Astro Beat – Staysee

This week, Marriott became the latest International firm to reveal more details about a new property in the trending destination. The leading U.S. hotel group is building a 17-floor property with 160 lavish rooms right in the heart of the capital’s downtown area. 

Providing excellent access to the city’s main hotspots, including the vibrant Estela María district and the old town, the new hotel is perfectly situated for a quaint city getaway.

Much like Hyatt’s new Centric property, which will also be conveniently located close to major attractions, Marriott will provide affordable and high-standard accommodations for both business and leisure travelers. 

The property will boast five different room categories, allowing for plenty of flexibility for all price points, as well as a comprehensive set of on-site amenities. Marriott’s newest hotel will feature high-tech amenities, including fast Wi-Fi, smart TVs, and sound-proof materials to enhance comfort and relaxation.

Despite having just 160 rooms, guests will be able to enjoy several culinary options that highlight Santo Domingo’s unique position as a foodie paradise. The Kitchen & Bar eatery will be situated on the second floor offering a varied choice for food & drink served casually. 

Meanwhile, a modern cocktail bar offers the perfect place to unwind or socialize, complete with a fine selection of local wines, beers, and spirits. 

But Courtyard by Marriott Santo Domingo will also boast some unique amenities that will make it a hit for travelers seeking something special for their stay. The property’s Rooftop Bar comes with a breathtaking infinity pool with some of the best views in the city.

Guests will also have access to a high-quality and fully equipped gym as well as several conference halls that can accommodate up to 150 guests. 

Here’s Why Santo Domingo Is Trending With Travelers Right Now

Unlike resort hotspots like Punta Cana or La Romana, Santo Domingo is home to some of the oldest buildings not only in the Dominican Republic but the entire Americas. The centuries-old city is a vibrant melting pot of cultures, foods, and architectural styles that make it one of the most versatile destinations in the region.

While mostly famous for its beautiful old town – a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage program – Santo Domingo is also home to several coastal resort towns that offer affordable rates and stunning white-sand beaches.

Punta Cana travelers can easily visit Santo Domingo for a day trip thanks to the variety of guided tours on offer on Viator or Tripadvisor.
