The Embassy Suites By Hilton in Santo Domingo is truly phenomenal!! I have stayed there about three times, last time this past February for 2 nights. I actually mapped the distance from the hotel to the consulate and its only 17 min away!! :dancing:

I might stay there for when my interview is scheduled!!

Hope this helps and good luck with your interview.

Have any body from Santiago choose to stay in the Capital before interview, if so where ?

I am from Santiago, when i went to the consulate i stayed at Jardines del Teatro hotel.

It is a confortable little hotel next to the teatro nacional.

It is a 18 minutes from the consulate.

With a taxi go there is 300 pesos, almost 7 dollars.

The hotel price was 2200 pesos, i was alone.

50 dollars per night.

809 687 5114 that is the number, the woner is a friendly lady, you can ask her for a number for taxi.

Good hotel to stay.

If you dont spend a lot of money , this is the hotel.

I think that for an extra perso is 10 dollar more, i am no sure.

Just call and ask, but this the cheaper hotel in the area and very clean.

I like it, dont forget ask to the lady the taxi phone number.

Dont pay more than 300 peso, that is the price to go to the consulate.

It is easy to arrive, if you go on caribe tour, you down on Maximo Gomez and take a public car for 25 pesos and tell that stop at the old american consulate, then cross the stree to the teatro nacional and there is the hotel.

Or you can go the the caribe tour bus stop, and then take a taxi to the hotel. 180 pesos.

You can see the hotel on google map and check your best way to arrive.
