Hotel Casa Santa Domingo
This unique property offers museum galleries and budget-friendly guest rooms that incorporate original historic details.
This former 16th-century convent is part hotel and part museum. Or rather, museums — dedicated to colonial art, archaeology, pre-Columbian art, modern glassworks, contemporary art, silver and even ancient pharmacy pieces. Guest rooms feature exposed timber beams, handmade textiles and select pieces by Guatemalan artists, and come equipped with LCD TVs with cable, phones with voicemail, safes, mini-bars, fireplaces and saunas or Jacuzzis in select accommodations. The stone-clad El Refectorio del Prior serves global fusion cuisine, while Yaxtun Spa focuses on Mayan-inspired treatments. Active travelers will appreciate the diversity of area excursions, from tours of vineyards and coffee farms to zip-lining and volcano hikes.
