Hilton has broken ground on a new property as part of its Curio Collection by Hilton, marking the brand’s debut property in the Dominican Republic. Hotel Santiago is set to open in late 2022 as part of Santiago Center, an upscale mixed-use development with more than 15 dining options, a shopping mall, local artisan market and children’s play area.
Situated within the island’s largest territory of El Cibao, Hotel Santiago, Curio Collection by Hilton will offer upscale accommodation in Santiago de Los Caballeros, one of the Dominican Republic’s main financial, agricultural and cultural districts. The new hotel, planned to be LEED-certified, will have 177 guestrooms, a vibrant rooftop bar and signature restaurant, meeting spaces, and an outdoor pool.
Santiago de los Caballeros is the second-largest city in the Dominican Republic, and is a leading producer of tobacco, rum and cacao. Guests of Hotel Santiago can plan to visit local attractions, such as Monumento de Santiago and Centro Cultural Eduardo León Jimenes, spend the day admiring street art or discovering a trail at J. Armando Bermudez National Park. They can also visit Cibao Stadium to soak in the atmosphere and get to know the most promising stars of Dominican baseball.
Hilton currently has a portfolio of more than 20 hotels and resorts in the Caribbean, in addition to a pipeline of nearly 20 projects in the region. Of these, there are Curio Collection hotels under development in the Cayman Islands and Dominica.
