Casas del XVI, New Luxury Boutique Hotel Opening in 2014 in the New World's Oldest City

Imagine stepping back in time to the sixteenth century, tracing the same cobblestone streets as Christopher Columbus, relishing the grandeur of the new world's first church and retreating to a stunning colonial mansion. For travelers to the Dominican Republic, this dream will soon be a reality at the brand new, boutique Casas del XVI, an eight-room luxury hotel opening in Santo Domingo's emerging Ciudad Colonial in March 2014, with a soft opening slated for December 15, 2013. 

Nestled in the heart of the New World's oldest city, Casas del XVI is the first hotel in the Dominican Republic comprised of an exclusive collection of newly renovated colonial houses dating back to the sixteenth century. Maintaining the integrity of the stunning, romantic architecture, the hotel preserves the beauty of the abodes that make up the old town neighborhood, offering guests accommodations in eight rooms and suites spread between three individual houses each reminiscent of the island's earliest European settlers.
