Hilton Hotels Corp. has added the 570-room Condado Plaza Hotel & Casino, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to its Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand.
Renamed the Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza, the hotel is the first Conrad property in the Caribbean and, in 2008, underwent a $70-million redesign, which included an intensive refurbishment of all guestrooms, public areas, a new lobby and over 40,000 sq. ft. of meeting space.
Located on San Juan’s upmarket Condado strip, the property features Puerto Rico’s largest 24-hour casino. Amenities include a newly redesigned fitness center, poolside massages, two Emulsion Lykold Acrylic tennis courts, secluded beach and three outdoor swimming pools.
This latest addition reinforces Hilton’s plans to expand its luxury and lifestyle portfolio into key markets worldwide.
