5 Ways to Make Your Stay at Fairmont El San Juan Hotel Memorable

Designed by legendary Miami Beach architect, Morris Lapidus, the hotel officially opened its doors on February 1, 1958, offering guests authentic Puerto Rican hospitality and entertainment.

By the 1960’s, Fairmont El San Juan Hotel became one of the most visited destinations because of its oceanfront location and premium nightlife, featuring performances from top entertainers including Sammy Davis Jr., Nat King Cole, Milton Berle, Paul Anka, Liza Minelli, Marco Antonio Muñiz, and Julio Iglesias. Today, the hotel remains a timeless Puerto Rican icon.
