The Occidental El Embajador is an upscale business hotel, located in a fairly quiet, residential pocket of downtown Santo Domingo, where chain-style but comfy rooms aren't plagued by street noise like some other downtown hotels.
The lobby is lovely, with a big grand piano and opulent Spanish-style decor. This focus on interior design doesn't extend to the rooms, but they're comfortable and contain free Wi-Fi. The pool, however, is something to write home about -- it's large and surrounded by very comfortable loungers with plenty of shade. It's serviced by a lively bar, all which make for a super relaxing afternoon after long meetings.
Dining options are plentiful and include a tasty tapas bar. There's also a casino on site, tennis courts and lots of meeting and conference space.
