How it Ranks: Occidental El Embajador ranks #3 out of 19 Santo Domingo Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of Santo Domingo's commercial district (just a few blocks west of Santo Domingo University), the Occidental El Embajador provides guests with both an urban atmosphere and prime beach access. Recent visitors describe the El Embajador as beautiful, praising the historical decorative accents like crystal chandeliers in the lobby and classic furnishings — not to mention the satellite TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi — in the guest rooms. However, many visitors report late-night noise from surrounding restaurants and bars, warning future guests to book a room overlooking the pool for a better night's sleep. If you're in need of a little pick-me-up, head to the full-service spa for a massage or treat yourself to a hearty meal at one of three on-site restaurants.
