Catalonia Chain Opens Hotel in Santo Domingo

The Spanish-based Catalonia Hotels & Resorts chain took over the management of the Santo Domingo Hotel this past February 1.

The hotel, one of Santo Domingo’s oldest and most popular hotels, will now operate as the Catalonia Santo Domingo Hotel.

The chain announced that it will invest US$3 million to renovate the facility, situated in the city’s beautiful seaside boulevard.

The 228-room hotel also features 1,100 square meters of conference rooms and halls for social events, as well as 400 parking spaces.

The hotel was formerly managed by the Hilton hotel chain.

The hotel is situated a short distance from the city’s Colonial Zone, where some of the oldest buildings in the Americas – built during the 15th and 16th centuries by the Spanish colonizers – have been turned into important historical museums.

The hotel’s General Manager, Ivan Cunillera, explained that the Catalonia Hotels & Resorts chain currently operates three resorts in the Dominican Republic.

For more information and reservations, please write to or call 829-333-0125.

The Catalonia Santo Domingo offers guests an executive floor, casino, restaurant, three bars, a fitness area overlooking the Caribbean Sea and an outdoor pool.

It is the hotel’s first hotel in a major city in the Caribbean.
