GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Santa Clara, a lively town with a rich, revolutionary history, is a popular destination, but was often zipped through en route to somewhere else. The lack of comfortable, well-appointed hotels in town was partially responsible. All that changed in 2012 when a major capital investment updated and repaired the Hotel América.
Originally built in the 50’s, the Hotel América is a landmark building (some Art Deco details remain on the façade) in the city center across from the iconic Coppelia ice cream parlor. Thanks to the renovation, everything here feels bright, fresh, and clean, including the 27 standard rooms.
The América is a stylish, comfortable boutique hotel with an emphasis on service. However, there’s no elevator here, which may be important for visitors with mobility issues.
Breakfast and dinner are served in the small, but well-designed, restaurant and cocktails are mixed in the lobby bar. The pool (on the roof) is big enough considering there are only 27 rooms here.
The location of the Hotel América is superb, with the city’s animated main square, Parque Vidal, just steps away and the Che Guevara Monument within 30 minutes walking distance (5 minutes by taxi).
For a pleasant stay in the city center, the Hotel América makes an excellent choice. For a more rural and tranquil atmosphere, the Los Caneyes and La Granjita hotels, a few minutes outside of town, are recommended.
Hotel América is located in downtown Santa Clara, 100 meters from Parque Vidal , the city’s main square. Santa Clara is the capital of Villa Clara province, in central Cuba, about 50km from the northern coast. The city is 280km west of Havana, 196km from Varadero and 114 km north of Trinidad.
