InterContinental Hotels Group Opens New Luxury Hotel in Santo Domingo

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) recently announced the opening of the InterContinental Real Santo Domingo hotel in the Dominican Republic’s capital.

Standing 21 stories tall with 227 guest rooms, two bars and three unique restaurants, the hotel caters to travelers in town for business as well as those looking for a weekend getaway where they can explore a city rich in history, architecture and culture or take a day trip to dive in the waters of Boca Chica Beach, located less than an hour from Santo Domingo.

“With its location in a key international gateway destination, the InterContinental Real Santo Domingo contributes to the strong growth of the InterContinental brand following the re-opening of the InterContinental New York Barclay,” said Jason Moskal, IHG's vice president of lifestyle brands for the Americas. 

The $70 million dollar new-build hotel offers a variety of luxury suites, including 16 junior suites and one presidential suite which spans 2,300 square feet and offers views of the Caribbean Sea. 

The on-site spa offers guests a chance to relax while enjoying a wide range of treatments. Guests can also enjoy two saunas, two steam baths and an infinity pool overlooking the city. The fitness center is open 24 hours and has modern equipment with Wi-Fi enabled features, allowing users to listen to music and watch their preferred TV programs while working out.

With three restaurants and two bars, the hotel offers a wide variety of dining options. Guests and locals alike can enjoy casual dining at The Market Restaurant, enjoy live music at Nau Restaurant and have a more formal, upscale experience, the Factory Steak and Lobster restaurant.

Additionally, the hotel offers nearly 9,000 square feet of meeting space spread across eight rooms with a maximum capacity of 750 guests.
