Cubanacan to re-open Hotel Imperial in Santiago de Cuba

With a total of 36 new properties island-wide currently in the process of being built or planned to be built over the next three to five years, Cuba is set to inaugurate several hotels soon. Santiago de Cuba, the island’s enchanting and vibrant eastern city, was not left behind in this race to upgrade the country’s tourism infrastructure, as it seeks to open a new property within the city centre.

Situated within a historic building that dates back to 1916, in the corner of Enramada and Santo Tomas streets, the property will re-open soon under the name of “Hotel Imperial”. After undergoing several remodelling and renovation works, the new venue will become a 4-star facilitiy, falling into the category of “Hoteles E”, a brand that focuses on small properties that specialise in an intimate ambiance and personalised services, amidst an interesting cultural environment.

Crowning the centre of the beautiful Santiago, Hotel Imperial will provide 39 elegant rooms, of which three are junior suites, located in the corners of the building for more panoramic and enchanting views of the city. Fine choice will be provided for dining and drinking through the snack bar “La Joya” and the lobby bar “Don Fernando” as well as restaurants “La Francia” and the rooftop garden “El Dorado”, set on the fifth floor boasting spectacular vistas of the urban centre mixed with exotic natural beauty.

Hotel Imperial accompanies other excellent urban facilities like the Melia Santiago hotel, but stands out for its interesting background. Through the years, many important figures of Cuban culture have been part of Hotel Imperial’s history, including Grammy-winning jazz and blues singer Omara Portuondo, danzon music legend Barbarito Diez, improvisation king Candido Fabre and comedian Carlos Ruis de la Tejera.

Once all repairs are finished, the property will be launched and administrated by local Cubanacan hotel chain. Hoteles Cubanacan is the hotel division of Grupo Cubanacan, founded on 5th August 1987 as an international marketing and tourism corporation to promote, market and operate hotel properties of many types and categories, both in Cuba and abroad. With more than 70 hotels, Grupo Cubanacan works in association with prestigious international hotel chains, in hotel administration and joint ventures.
