Embassy Suites by Hilton, which raised its flag in Puerto Rico in December 1996, is marking two decades of history on the island with a series of events at its Isla Verde and Dorado properties this year, leading up to a gala benefit next year, hotel officials said.

Embassy Suites opened its Isla Verde location first, followed by Dorado. In December 2014, the Isla Verde property underwent a complete overhaul of its 299 rooms, including its one-and two-bedroom suites and its presidential suite. More recently, the hotel added 11 additional rooms, bumping the inventory to 310 suites.

Meanwhile, the Dorado property — which is marking its 15th anniversary — unveiled a newly renovated face in August 2015, when all of its 174 rooms were redesigned. The property also expansed its events and meeting spaces, adding a new 9,000 square-foot “Grand Hall” — which formerly housed a casino — that accommodates 650 people for banquet events, 1,000 for receptions and up to 72, 10×10 exhibit booths.

As part of the celebration, earlier this month, hotel staff unveiled the official anniversary cocktail and desserts, crafted by local Bartender César Corrada and Chef Melisandra Quiñones, respectively.
