InterContinental Hotels Group announced Thursday the completion of a $22.2 million renovation of the iconic, Morris Lapidus-designed InterContinental San Juan, one of the Caribbean’s most recognized properties.
The hotel’s improvements will provide an enhanced experience and setting for both business and leisure travelers. While guest rooms reflect a combination of different tones of beige and blue symbolizing sand and sea, the decorative accents and wood details evoke the emblematic colors and architectural characteristics of Old San Juan.
Meanwhile, the public space areas provide a warm and modern ambiance for business meetings and leisure, and all meeting rooms were refreshed with a look and feel consistent with the rest of the resort featuring the newest digital signage with sleek design and sophistication.
“Few properties in the region offer the combination of an oceanfront location coupled with the business amenities featured at the InterContinental San Juan,” said Alvaro Diago, COO, Latin America and Caribbean, IHG. “There is no doubt that this one-of-a-kind property will continue to define hospitality on the island of Puerto Rico and remain a key asset in the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts portfolio.”
The renovation of the 398-room hotel also included upgrades to the beachfront property’s guest rooms and suites, lobby, meeting rooms and common areas.
“We are confident that the renovation has further positioned the InterContinental San Juan as one of the preeminent luxury properties in the Caribbean,” said Gerardo Murray, vice president, Distribution and Commercial Marketing, Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean, IHG. “Its location as both a resort and business destination is unique. We look forward to showcasing these enhancements to our guests.”
IHG has nearly 200 hotels in Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean, and has been serving Latin America for 65 years. IHG has hotels situated in nearly every key market throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, including Puerto Rico, where it arrived in 1960.
