It’s one of the biggest trends in travel since the onset of the pandemic: the rise of the digital nomad, and the increased popularity of long-term, remote-work stays.
And that’s precisely the target at Marriott’s newest Caribbean hotel, the new Residence Inn in one of Puerto Rico’s most popular beach towns.
The new Residence Inn by Marriott San Juan Isla Verde made its debut this week in the always-bustling beach neighborhood of Isla Verde outside of San Juan.
The property, which is operated by Highgate, has a total of 231 suites, all with fully-equipped kitchens, separate living and sleeping areas and a design aimed at longer stays. The latter is of course one of the biggest trends in travel since the onset of the pandemic.
“We are delighted to open the first Residence Inn in Puerto Rico in the Isla Verde neighborhood, surrounded by restaurants and experiences that welcome business and tourism. Each suite has been developed to create sensations of being close to home with personalized welcoming moments.”
Amenities at the property include The Market, a 24-hour grab-and-go food and beverage store, a fitness center, an outdoor pool, a kids water-play pool and free Wi-Fi, among others.
Marriott says the property is designed for stays of five nights or more, with a concept of “travel the way you live.”
“The world’s leading long-stay brand, Residence Inn by Marriott, is an excellent addition to our growing portfolio in Puerto Rico, offering more choices to our guests and Marriott Bonvoy members,” said Brian King, President for Marriott International in the Caribbean and Latin America. “As travel evolves, the longer stay segment has increased in popularity, especially for digital nomads who blend work and leisure travel together seamlessly.”
It’s the most recent Residence Inn to debut in the Caribbean, following last fall’s debut of a new Residence Inn in the beach town of Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
