InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has completed its $22.25m refurbishment of the InterContinental San Juan hotel in Puerto Rico.
With the renovation, the company plans to offer a better experience and setting for both business and leisure travellers, while guest rooms are designed with different tones of beige and blue symbolising the sand and sea.
The AAA Four-Diamond InterContinental San Juan hotel’s renovation includes upgrades to its guest rooms and suites, lobby, meeting rooms and the property’s common areas.
Situated on two miles of white sand beach on Puerto Rico’s northern coast of Isla Verde, the hotel is in close proximity to Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport.
IHG Latin America and Caribbean COO Alvaro Diago said that few properties in the region offer the combination of an oceanfront location coupled with the business amenities featured at the InterContinental San Juan.
"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," Diago added.
InterContinental San Juan has 398 guest rooms offering views of the ocean as well as the city, while the property includes beachfront recreational activities and amenities.
The hotel has a lagoon-shaped, cascade swimming pool, a beachfront full-service spa and fitness centre, as well as an 8,500ft² foot casino.
The property also houses 12 meeting rooms including 18,000ft² of capacity for accommodating around 600 guests.
IHG Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean distribution and commercial marketing vice president Gerardo Murray said the group is confident that the renovation has further positioned the InterContinental San Juan as one of the preeminent luxury properties in the Caribbean.
"Its location as both a resort and business destination is unique. We look forward to showcasing these enhancements to our guests," Murray added.
Currently, IHG has around 200 hotels in Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean.
InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has 178 InterContinental hotels across 60 countries worldwide and 19 InterContinental hotels in Latin America and the Caribbean.
