Homewood Suites by Hilton enters Caribbean market with new D.R. hotel

SANTO DOMINGO — Homewood Suites by Hilton has opened its first-ever hotel in the Caribbean, and its 500th overall, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Having opened earlier this week, the 145-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton Santo Domingo reflects the D.R.’s steady growth in visitors from North America and further cements the brand’s commitment to global expansion. It now boasts over 100 hotels totalling more than 12,000 suites across the United States, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean.

“The Dominican Republic is as economically strong as it is naturally beautiful, and we are thrilled to expand Homewood Suites by Hilton’s brand footprint into the historic capital of Santo Domingo with our milestone 500th opening,” said Rick Colling, global head, Homewood Suites by Hilton. “With offerings such as spacious suites and complimentary breakfast, this hotel provides a new extended-stay lodging option with value-added incentives and signature home-like amenities in a prime location in the centre of the city.”

The contemporary hotel offers a combination of studio and one-bedroom accommodations featuring fully-equipped kitchens and separate living and sleeping areas. Guests also enjoy complimentary daily full hot breakfast, evening social 2x/week, Wi-Fi, grocery shopping service, a fitness centre, rooftop bar, pool area and flexible meeting or event space that can accommodate up to 15 guests. The hotel also enjoys an enviable location within walking distance from the Acrópolis Center and the upscale shopping district of Blue Mall.

In addition, as part of Hilton’s 2030 goal to send zero soap to landfill and its global partnership with clean the World, the Homewood Suites by Hilton Santo Domingo will be participating in the Clean the World soap recycling initiative. Through this program, hotels recycle discarded soap and bathroom amenity bottles to divert waste from landfill and enable Clean the World to create new bars of soap to distribute to those in need around the world.

The All Suites brands by Hilton currently comprises Embassy Suites by Hilton, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton. Hilton has a portfolio of approximately 150 hotels and resorts in the Caribbean and Latin America, over 20 in the Caribbean alone.
