Renaissance Jaragua Hotel and Casino, A waterfront resort with a popular disco, the Renaissance Jaragua Hotel and Casino is a 10-story Las Vegas-style palace located off the Malecón, Santo Domingo's main boulevard, and convenient to the city's major attractions and shops. The hotel is within walking distance of the city's colonial zone and craft market, and El Conde Peatonal shopping street. The hotel is a 45-minute drive from the beach, and is 35 minutes from the Las Americas International Airport. Built in 1956 by dictator Raphael Trujillo and closed after his assassination, the hotel added a 10-story tower before reopening in 1989. Today the 14-acre, Marriott-owned Renaissance Jaragua remains the place for Dominicans to stage weddings and other social events, as it also caters to international business travelers, vacationers, and after-dark revelers.
