Hilton has announced that the El San Juan Hotel, a landmark property in Puerto Rico, has joined Curio – A Collection by Hilton. The hotel has 388 guest rooms. This is the first property in Puerto Rico for Curio.
Originally opened in 1958, the oceanfront El San Juan Hotel is located in the Isla Verde district of San Juan, situated on two miles of pristine beach. The hotel closed in August 2016 for renovations. About $35 million to $40 million was invested, with most of the work taking place in the hotel’s guest rooms, pools, meeting area, and shopping area. The hotel’s lobby and 7,500 sq. ft. casino was mostly left untouched.
The hotel features 5 award-winning restaurants all overseen by Executive Chef Gonzalo Rivera who formerly served as the Executive Chef at Boca Beach Club. A new restaurant will also open this spring, Caña by Juliana Gonzalez – who has led some of the finest restaurants in Spain and Miami.
Other amenities include:
- An 11,000-square-foot grand ballroom – the second largest in San Juan.
- Four pools and Six bars.
- The El San Juan Beach Club.
- Spa and fitness facilities.
