Its for the birds....

There was a funny smell along the hallways. Also if you are trying to sleep before 10:30pm forget about it! There is a swarm of birds outside that keep making noise until about that time.

Great business base

Just a 2-day business stay, but price was very reasonable for a well-located, grand older hotel. (Big price difference with other international hotels.) Not a spiffy, modern hotel but everything worked and the staff was great. Rooms and closets are huge. Room safe is large. Bath's fine but TV is smallish, with a few English channels. Didn't try in-room internet but standard set-up was there. Business center handled my faxing needs professionally; front desk and bell/doorman staffs were helpful and friendly; buffet breakfast spread was a full meal. As a traveling businesswoman, I felt secure here.

nice elegant hotel

The staff needs to give better explanation of things that you ask such as parking, directions, etc... but they did help. The casino seemed a little run down and not anything grand. We got lost getting to the hotel from the airport de las americas. Other than that, there are a number of restaurants in the surrounding area, I liked Il Capo and the Cave restaurant. I liked the pool and the restaurant at the hotel and therooms were nice and clean and quiet. Not opulent, but definately elegant : )

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

don't go through the middle streets or avenues to get to and from the hotel to the colonial part of the city or the airport, try the outskirts better or you will be stuck in major traffice for hours.

unforgivable experience

First of all, upon arrival front desk was not aware of our reservation, eventhough I gave them my reservation number. Then I was asked to find a computer and print the e-mail confirmation from orbitz. When I asked to use their computer, they acted as if they were doing me a favor. And also don't be fooled by the description given by orbitz, the amenities of the hotel stated free breakfast but when I got there they explained that through orbitz the breakfast was not included, although all rooms in the hotel include free breakfast. Most shockingly, i have never heard of a hotel who makes you pay to park your car per hour. My room was dirty, my sink clogged, springs of the bed worn out. I would strongly NOT recommend this hotel to anyone nor booking through orbitz.

The good and the bad.Very small room. No

It was my 6th staying at this hotel. First time at the Royal Club. The room I got was very small,1/2 the size of The Standart rooms. No view,no balcony. The Royal club Lounge is VERY nice and comfortable.
