The hotel, a member of the Occidental Hotel group, recently became a distinguished member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts, a worldwide collection of luxury hotels found in 85 destinations, eight of them in the Caribbean.
The Preferred Hotels & Resorts is a brand of the Preferred Hotel Group™, a key player in the international tourism industry that represents more than 650 of the world’s finest hotels and resorts.
The El Embajador is the second hotel in the Dominican Republic to join the prestigious group.
The first was the world-renowned Casa de Campo resort, one of the finest in the Caribbean region.
Built in 1956, the iconic El Embajador Hotel has for decades been one of the country’s most distinguished hotels.
The Occidental chain of hotels has invested some US$10 million in the renovation of the facility, giving it the splendor that has always characterized it.
The hotel has always been a favorite of foreign dignitaries and business executives who visit Santo Domingo.
Occidental Hotels & Resorts General Manager Jaime Buxó recently visited Santo Domingo where he announced the hotel’s new relationship with the world-famous brand.
“We are very happy with our membership in Preferred Hotels & Resorts, which will raise our customer service by offering additional luxury amenities and a stronger global distribution platform,” said Buxó to reporters.
Buxó explained that the hotel chain had made “significant investments to improve its offerings and services so that the facility can continue to be the most sophisticated hotel in Santo Domingo.”
He also added that by being a member of the luxury hotel chain, the El Embajador will be able to attract more visitors to the country through the Preferred Hotels & Resorts network.
Meetings and Events
One of the reasons why the Occidental El Embajador Hotel is a true leader among business and leisure travelers is because of the extensive facilities it offers when it comes to events and business meetings.
Other pluses: beautiful surrounding gardens, a glamorous lobby, excellent national and international cuisine, and beautiful refurbished rooms.
The El Embajador Hotel is the first to be selected in Santo Domingo as a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts.
For the third consecutive year the hotel was awarded the TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence,” issued to the finest hotels in the world.
