Managed by Leon, Mayer & Co., who is also a co-owner of the hotel, and co-managed by Imprint Hospitality and Aimbridge Hospitality, the 388-guestroom hotel is the first property in Puerto Rico for Hilton's soft brand. Originally opened in 1958, the oceanfront El San Juan Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton property is located in the Isla Verde district of San Juan. 

The front of the hotel was completely transformed and upgraded. It also has a custom sculpture designed by local artist Luis Torruella, who designed an eight-foot sphere that floats in a pool of water, said to be inspired by the relationship that Puerto Rico and the hotel share with music, dance and nature. The lobby has a hand-carved mahogany ceiling and chandelier, while the rooms, suites and villas use warm-toned stone.
