Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Holiday Inn Santo Domingo

Abraham Lincoln 856, Santo Domingo, Nacional, 10148, Dominican Republic

This contemporary marvel in fashionable Piantini is the Caribbean prototype for Holiday Inn's new line of upscale properties meant for central urban zones, more upscale and more expensive than comparable hotels in the U.S. The edgy, industrial-metal style wows with splashes of purple in the lobby, juxtaposed with paper art and chrome sculptures. A business center, with laptops and a printer, is conveniently located in the Level 2 Bar, which also serves a creative tapas menu. Guest rooms are chic, with digitally controlled lights. A good spirit prevails: on your way down, the carpet in the elevator says "Good Morning"; at night the carpet's changed to "Good Evening." Rates drop on weekends, and a hearty breakfast is always included.
