There has been some talk, and some questions asked, about the new hotel adjacent to Independence Park in Santo Domingo. Hotel Discovery is in an excellent location, overlooking the park. It is said to have some rooms that offer views of the caribbean as well.
It has a rooftop bar, a small pool/jacuzzi, and other amenities. The rates are quite reasonable.
When I spoke to the manager he told me that having guests are not a problem. But as always, I strongly suggest using discretion. You may contact the hotel by calling 1-809-687-4048 or by emailing email@example.com
