Santo Domingo, or ‘La Capital’ as it’s typically called, is a collage of cultures and neighborhoods. It’s where the sounds of life – domino pieces slapped on tables, backfiring mufflers and horns from chaotic traffic, merengue and bachata blasting from corner stores – are most intense. At the heart of the city is the Zona Colonial, where you’ll find one of the oldest churches and the oldest surviving European fortress, among other New World firsts. Amid the cobblestone streets it would be easy to forget Santo Domingo is in the Caribbean. But this is an intensely urban city, home not only to colonial-era architecture, but also to hot clubs, vibrant cultural institutions and elegant restaurants. Santo Domingo somehow manages to embody the contradictions central to the Dominican experience: a living museum, a metropolis crossed with a seaside resort, and a business, political and media center with a laid-back, affable spirit.

Situated in the heart of the Piantini District, JW Marriott Hotel Santo Domingo is a one-of-a-kind destination to make your home base during your visit to the Dominican Republic. Our luxury hotel boasts a prime location near Santo Domingo's business district, as well as popular attractions including Catedral Prima de América and Alcåzar de Colón. Prior to exploring the local area, catch up on some rest and relaxation in our lavish rooms or suites featuring a plethora of stylish amenities. When your hunger sets in, savor the international flavors prepared by our world-class chef at our restaurant, Winston Grill & Patio. Head up to Vertygo 101 - Lounge & Bar to unwind with a specialty cocktail while gazing down upon the city through the bar's glass floors, or from its outdoor terrace.
