Overview

Business travelers have access to a business center and roughly 12,000 square feet of meeting space
Many say accommodations could benefit from a renovation

Catalonia Santo Domingo appeals to both business and leisure travelers. This Santo Domingo hotel features nearly 12,000 square feet of meeting space, a business center and free Wi-Fi access, so your only excuse for a lapse in productivity is the nearby beach. If you don't have deadlines to worry about, spend some time by the pool or sipping cocktails at one of two bars. Recent guests praised the clean and spacious (albeit dated) guest rooms, equipped with flat-screen TVs, minibars, work desks and coffee makers. However, some past travelers had mixed feelings about the property's location. While some loved its proximity to the Malecon, others wished it had more restaurants within walking distance and was closer to central attractions like Zona Colonial. If you'd rather dine on-site, head to the Sea Blue Breakfast for buffet-style breakfasts, Filigrana Restaurant for Dominican-inspired lunches and dinners or Five Hundred Snack Bar for pizzas, tapas and more.

A contemporary landmark on the seafront, it manages to please businesspeople, convention attendees, and leisure travelers (the pool has sea views). ... Service is laudable, and rates can be surprisingly moderate, particularly on weekends.
