The AC Hotel San Juan by Marriott at 86 Ashford Avenue in the Condado tourist district of San Juan, Puerto Rico is a conversion from an older hotel that operated at the site for decades under different hospitality flags. The upgraded facilities have 233 guestrooms, the signature AC Hotel Bar, a breakfast lounge on the 9th floor with ocean and city views, a rooftop terrace with an expanded pool, and other guest amenities. It also includes a local, upscale bakery and tapas restaurant with sidewalk patios that landmark the corner where it is located as gateway to a very distinct portion of the Condado district. The 145,000-square-foot building was completely renovated to meet the AC Hotel standards in collaboration with interior designers, sculptors, and artists, both local and international, to create a harmonious, discerning, and modern atmosphere that offers its guests an oasis from the city’s hustle and bustle. The renovation project was designed with sustainability and efficiency in mind, earning a Green Permit, while meeting its original budget of $22.3MM.
