Hilton Garden Inn makes Dominican Republic debut

Hilton is introducing its Hilton Garden Inn brand to the Dominican Republic with the opening of a new-build hotel in sought-after La Romana.

Hilton Garden Inn La Romana will provide an upscale and affordable stay with views over the Caribbean Sea, Catalina Island and the medieval town.

An ideal location

The 130-key Hilton Garden Inn La Romana is now welcoming its first guests in a scenic position overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The property places guests between the resort area of Punta Cana and the capital city, Santo Domingo.

“As Hilton continues its expansion in the Dominican Republic and across the broader Caribbean, we are excited to welcome travellers with a brand-new hotel option in the highly sought-after destination of La Romana,” said Jorge Giannattasio, senior vice president and head of operations, Caribbean and Latin America, Hilton.

“Whether visiting La Romana for the historic architecture and turquoise beaches or to embark on a Caribbean cruise, we’re delighted to offer guests an upscale and affordable stay matched by our friendly and renowned hospitality.”

The hotel is less than nine miles from La Romana International Airport and four miles from La Romana Cruise Terminal. Punta Cana International Airport is a 50-mile journey away.

The hotel experience

Local cultural influence is woven into the interior design through patterns and materials. Lush gardens and the use of natural tones then reflect this property’s natural surroundings.

The brand-new hotel is home to 130 rooms with private balconies, along with facilities including an open lobby, The Garden Grill for local and international cuisine, The Garden Bar, a 24-hour grab-and-go shop and a self-serve specialty coffee bar. Event space spanning 9,000 sq ft accommodates up to 400 people.

The hotel also features a 24-hour fitness centre and infinity pool. Guests can get to know the surroundings through activities including trips to Catalina Island, snorkelling among other watersports, golf and ziplining.

“With more than 970 hotels worldwide, and Hilton’s largest pipeline in the Caribbean and Latin America, Hilton Garden Inn continues to showcase remarkable growth in the region. Today, we are thrilled to bring the brand’s hallmark open, inviting atmosphere and best-in-class service to the Dominican Republic,” said Alan Roberts, brand leader, Hilton Garden Inn.

“With its ideal location, thoughtful amenities, and expansive meeting and event spaces, Hilton Garden Inn La Romana is the perfect choice for travellers seeking affordable upscale accommodations and Hilton’s signature reliable and friendly service.”
