Construction of Iberostar’s first hotel under the Heritage brand in the Dominican Republic is progressing steadily and quietly in Santo Domingo’s Colonial City, according to arecoa.com. The Spanish chain’s new hotel will have 131 rooms distributed over five levels.
In a visit to the Colonial City by editors of this tourist digital, it could be seen that there is a work team lifting debris and removing materials. This is only visible in the work being done on Duarte Street, since on the Las Mercedes Street side the building is completely covered and protected by security personnel.
The project covers one block and is a few steps from the Plaza de España, strategically located between the Nuestra Señora de La Altagracia Church and the ruins of the San Francisco Monastery.
The hotel, although its opening is eagerly awaited due to the differential offer it will provide in the city of Santo Domingo, will not be ready by the end of 2023, as originally planned.
It is recalled that the lodging establishment is being built with an investment of around US$ 22 to 25 million, and has been designed by the MONEO-BROCK Architecture Studio. It will have a restaurant, bar with terrace and swimming pool, among other amenities, which will allow the creation of some 170 jobs.
