SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico—InterContinental Hotels Group has announced the completion of a $22.25 million renovation of the iconic, Morris Lapidus-designed InterContinental San Juan, one of the Caribbean’s most recognized properties.
The hotel’s renovation included upgrades to its 398 guestrooms and suites, lobby, meeting rooms, and the property’s common areas. The property is located on two miles of white sand beach on Puerto Rico’s northern coast of Isla Verde.
While guestrooms reflect a harmonious 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. The public space areas provide a warm and modern ambience 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.
“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.”
The resort offers a variety of fine dining options to choose from and a myriad of beachfront recreational activities and amenities, along with a lagoon-shaped, cascade swimming pool, a beachfront full-service spa and fitness center, and an 8,500-square-foot casino. The property also features 12 meeting rooms consisting of 18,000 square feet with a capacity for up to 600 guests.
