JW Marriott Hotel Santo Domingo named as Best Luxury City Hotel

JW Marriott Hotel Santo Domingo has been given the Best Luxury City Hotel Award in the Continent at the 2016 World Luxury Hotel Awards (WLHA) in a ceremony held in Doha, Qatar. The hotel is located in the heart of Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic.

The golden award was presented to the President of the Dominican Republic, Danilo Medina, during the ceremony in Qatar that also celebrated the 10th anniversary of the World Luxury Hotel Awards. The upscale city hotel has already received 19 other accolades and awards since its opening in 2014.

“The JW Marriott Santo Domingo is a solid example that this land is fertile land for any project carried out with passion and effort. It’s an example of how people can achieve truly extraordinary things, initiatives that transcend at a global level, not just in this country, not just in the Caribbean.”

commented Xavier Pineda-Madrid, the Director of Sales & Marketing Director, during an intimate cocktail event at JW Marriott Hotel Santo Domingo.

“Our strategy is based in our luxury services: the best rooms in the city, with a privileged location, the best chef, and a team of ladies and gentlemen that provide an exclusive atmosphere. That is our positioning.”

JW Marriott Santo Domingo has been featured in the 2016 National Gastronomy Awards and was given the Best Gastronomic Offer by a Hotel Award, and the Best Head Chef Award was given to the hotel’s Executive Chef, Alberto Martín Cárdenas. The hotel was also named as one of the Dominican Republic’s best brands in the Topbrands Fourth Edition Brand Book.

The upscale hotel opened to travellers in August, 2014 and marked the hotel brand’s debut in the Caribbean.

The property has 150 guest rooms and suites, and features include complimentary wireless internet, Nespresso machines, 47-inch flat-screen TVs, and Aromatherapy bathroom amenities. The property’s Presidential Suite has an $8,000 Kohler bathtub with light therapy, massage and hydrotherapy.

Facilities at the luxury hotel include two executive floors and an exclusive Executive Lounge; several gourmet restaurants including the Winston Grill & Patio restaurant, Bar Vertigo, and a snack bar; a swimming pool and a fitness centre; and a grand ballroom for special events. One of the hotel’s unique features is a platform with a glass floor that has been built over Winston Churchill Avenue, where guests can sit and enjoy drinks while enjoying panoramic views of the bustling city below.
