Santo Domingo's Casas Del XVI Hotel Opens Next Month Reviving 16th-Century Architecture

Santo Domingo's Ciudad Colonial is the oldest European settlement in the new world and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Because of this, the area is rich with architectural, cultural and historical treasures like the first cathedral, hospital, and university in the Americas. The town itself is a virtual museum filled with ancient monuments, enchanting nightlife and romantic colonial mansions. In this location, Casas del XVI, an eight-room luxury boutique hotel, will be opening up in March 2014.
