A Favorite Thing
One of my favorite hotels has always been the Mercure Comercial. Right in the midst of all the happenings on the Conde, the pedestrian stroll with various shops and restaurants. I especially enjoy the covered patio where I can have a meal, a cocktail or chat with one of the friendly locals who may saunter up to engage in conversation.
The hotel has had its share of "restrictions" but it mostly has allowed discreet interactions. I have found that when visiting the D.R. one can have most of what they want with discretion.
The Mercure is comfortable, competitively priced, has wifi available and is steps away from a plethora of dining options, clubs, historic venues and tourist sites. It has a full hot breakfast buffet daily, included in the room rate. Rates start around $68 dollars US. You can often get a discounted rate through one of the travel sites.
