Its debut comes after a major renovation project.

“We are proud to continue our growth throughout the Caribbean by welcoming it as the first Curio Collection property in this spectacular destination,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio – A Collection by Hilton. “As a hotel that honors its proud past while offering the modern features that today’s curious traveler has come to expect, the fully remodeled and upgraded property will provide guests visiting San Juan truly authentic and remarkable experiences.”
