"We are in the heart of Gazcue, part of the colonial city. An urban space of the city of Santo Domingo flowing into the Malecón promenade with trees covering all its glory. Previously, it was a popular area for people of high political status. Surrounded by important historical dwellings, the origin of this district dates from the early 1900."
Hotel Duque de Wellington, located in the prestigious area of Gazcue, opens its doors to the public in late 1995 in an environment full of history: the colonial city. A building that has history with its location and structure. Surrounded by important mansions and buildings close to the former home of Juliet Trujillo, mother of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, and the former residence of late President Buenaventura Báez. In the beginning, the hotel was a family home, it was acquired by Emilio Baldi in early 1995. It happens to be a Colonial house built in 1928 renovated to a hotel with 12 rooms to begin what today is Hotel Duke of Wellington. With 20 years of providing uninterrupted services to its visitors.
