Located in the heart of Old San Juan, Hotel El Convento, a member of Historic Hotels of America, has set new standards of luxury, comfort and service while preserving the unique character and mystique of the hotel. A former Carmelite convent built three and a half centuries ago, Hotel El Convento has gone through many incarnations before a complete refurbishment carefully restored this historic hotel with special attention paid to the preservation of the original structure. No expense or imagination has been spared in giving Hotel El Convento a fine blend of originality and quality. There is something refreshingly different about Hotel El Convento, a small boutique-style hotel that celebrates the days of Old World style, creating a welcome atmosphere of sophistication without pretension, and providing its guests with style and traditional hospitality. The legacy of Hotel El Convento will no doubt continue to endure long into the 21st century.
