In 1919, Frederick William Vanderbilt selected Warren and Whitmore, the architectural firm that designed Grand Central Terminal, to create an exclusive Caribbean retreat for the elite. Following a $200 million revitalization in December 2014, the 316-room Condado Vanderbilt Hotel once again opened its doors to those seeking classic luxury and modern comfort. The guestrooms start at 325 square feet and feature stone-topped vanities, French windows, bamboo towels and commanding ocean views. Suites also offer 24-hour butler service, high ceilings, kitchenettes, dining areas, separate showers and private balconies. Stroll out on the oceanfront promenade, which extends the length of the property, and relax in a cabana as beach butlers deliver refreshments. At the 1919 restaurant, award-winning chef Juan José Cuevas prepares a four-course prix-fixe menu that includes such delicacies as halibut with arugula-basil pesto, and grass-fed beef with roasted tomatoes and grilled romaine.
In the Area
Within a short walk or drive of the hotel is Laguna de Condado, a calm body of water that is ideal for kayaking and paddleboarding, or visitors can relax on Condado Beach. Shoppers can explore Ashford Avenue, an iconic street lined with high-end boutiques as well as beautiful historic houses, and La Ventana al Mar, a picturesque public square. For dining, Marmalade Restaurant and Wine Bar in Old San Juan serves Caribbean fusion items and vegetarian dishes, with up to six courses that focus on local ingredients. After dinner head to the Mezzanine at St. Germain, an inviting cocktail bar with vintage atmosphere. San Juan has no shortage of sightseeing options, including the San Juan National Historic Site, known as “the Gibraltar of the Caribbean,” and the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, a brilliant museum displaying a variety of local art.

This Hotel offered amazing amenities and beach location. The customer service was top notch, and they took the time to remember their guest names. I wanted to give a special shout out to our butler Efrain who was beyond this world. Went out of his way to make reservations and recommendations. He made sure we were confortable at all hours of the night. Highly recommend to all family and friends.
