The Hodelpa Gran Almirante Hotel & Casino

Av. Estrella Sadhalá, , corner of Calle 10, Santiago, Santiago, 51000, Dominican Republic

The best hotel in downtown Santiago attracts business travelers with its central location, but the pool and sundeck, fitness room, steam and sauna, and Asian-inspired massage services are equally attractive to tourists. Guest rooms have luxury bedding and are modern and utilitarian but could use some colorful, cheery accessories. Executive floor rooms are even larger, more attractive, and include a 30-minute massage and a nightly happy hour among other things. At the lobby level, which has had a slick redecoration, a most appealing breakfast buffet is an option; by night, you can enjoy fusion cuisine at Boka or mojitos and Spanish-style tapas in the Meson Las Tapas Bar.
