San Juan Marriott Resort in Puerto Rico undergoes $8M guestroom renovation

The San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellar Casino in Puerto Rico started an $8-million renovation that is focused on upgrades to all 525 guestrooms and balconies. The redesign will bring the look and feel of the rooms in line with the ongoing modernization of the rest of the resort. Renovations are slated for completion by early December.

The new room product will reflect a more upscale, residential ambience, combining wood tones in furnishings with splashes of color to signify the tropical location. Additionally, new 47-inch TVs, balcony furniture and sandy textured carpeting that alludes to the beachfront setting will be incorporated, and artwork will further provide a sense of place.

This renovation brings San Juan Marriott full circle after renovations to the food and beverage outlets, casino, meeting space and lobby over the past three years.
