The 150-room JW Marriott Santo Domingo debuted this past August in Santo Domingo’s upscale Piantini financial district. Perched high above the high-end Blue Mall complex, the hotel gives the Dominican Republic an additional 13,500 sf of meeting space and its first “floating” restaurant and bar.
“The opening of this high luxury, sophisticated hotel marks an important milestone in the Dominican Republic’s tourism industry,” says Luis Emilio Velutini, president of FVI-Fondo de Valores Inmobiliarios S.A.C.A. “With the thriving economy in the country and the success of the high-end Blue Mall complex, we are confident that this unique and visually stunning hotel will become a landmark in Santo Domingo attracting travelers and groups from all over the world.”
At Vertygo 101, groups can gather for crafted cocktails and take in the scenery of Santo Domingo and Winston Churchill Avenue below through glass terrace floors and panoramic skyline views. Latin-American specialties with an Asian bent are served at the Winston Grill & Patio by Executive Chef Sergio Delfino. Guest rooms are modern and sophisticated, featuring high speed WiFi, charging stations and embedded TVs in bathroom mirrors. The presidential suite offers soothing amenities including a Kholer bath tub with light therapy, massage and hydrotherapy after a long day of meetings. The Piantini Grand Ballroom is the largest of the hotel’s nine meeting spaces with room for 300 people.
