InterContinental San Juan completes renovation

InterContinental Hotels Group announced the completion of a US $22.25 million renovation of the iconic, Morris Lapidus-designed InterContinental San Juan in Puerto Rico, one of the Caribbean's most recognized properties. 

The hotel's improvements will provide an outstanding experience and setting for both business and leisure travelers. While guest rooms 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.

"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."
