    About Us

    Location... Perfect city-stay on the beach
    Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the exclusive Condado District of San Juan, Puerto Rico, the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel is the perfect destination for exploring the many sights and attractions of this vibrant city. It is the answer for the traveler who wants a Caribbean experience without being in an isolated location.The hotel is located a short four and a half miles from the San Juan International Airport (SJU).
    The Condado Vanderbilt elegantly sits at the heart of the Condado district of San Juan. This ocean front neighborhood features some of the most beautiful historic and luxurious homes of San Juan, and is also known for its high-end shopping during the day and the epicenter of nightlife after dark. Regularly, it hosts music and culinary festivals, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
    While visiting us, we recommend a breezy walk down Ashford Avenue, where you may shop in luxury boutiques such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo and Cartier. Be sure to visit La Ventana al Mar, a popular open square facing the ocean, where you may enjoy a wonderful cocktail while gazing at Condado beach. If you crave more adventure, visit the historic Spanish forts and castles of Old San Juan, or you may even embark on a world class deep sea fishing voyage from the Nautical Club, all just a few blocks away. At night, Ashford Avenue lights up with the life of the local social scene, where you may enjoy smooth rhythms, fine cocktails, and perhaps a fun casino night if you so desire.
    Our History
    In 1919, Frederick William Vanderbilt, scion of one of the wealthiest families in America and arguably one of the most influential men in the country, acquired oceanfront land in the exclusive Condado District of San Juan, Puerto Rico. He selected Warren and Whitmore - one of the foremost architectural firms of the time, boasting the designs of New York’s Grand Central Station to its name - to design the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, an exclusive tropical retreat in the heart of the Caribbean.
    The early Spanish Revival style architecture was suggested by Frederick William Vanderbilt himself. Taking great advantage of the property’s breathtaking setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the designers created an imposing structure with white walls, red tiles, French windows, lofty ceilings and other design details typical of the style at the time. Inside, the original sweeping staircases and graceful archways remain intact to this very day and have been restored to their original splendor.
    An ultra luxury hotel from day one, the Condado Vanderbilt shone for its beauty and magnificence, attracting the kind of guests - not to mention the local elite – envisioned by Mr. Vanderbilt. Among the hotel’s distinguished guests were Charles Lindberg, Carlos Gardel, Errol Flynn, Bob Hope, Arthur Rubinstein, and President Franklin and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt.
    A Legendary Jewel shined to its original luster...
    Architectural styles come and go, yet from each period magnificent examples remain; examples that deserve to be preserved and immortalized if not for their splendor, then for their place in history. After a two-hundred million dollar investment the hotel has been restored to its original grandeur and it is welcoming guests once again.The Condado Vanderbilt Hotel showcases two newly built eleven-story ocean-front towers and the fully restored Spanish Revival building; consisting of 316 guest accommodations, including 107 suites with around-the-clock butler service.

    Best of the Best

    There’s a storied history behind the Spanish Revival facade of classic Condado Vanderbilt Hotel. Built in 1919 by Frederick William Vanderbilt as a high-toned tropical retreat, the 319-room hotel soon became the center of island society, welcoming everyone from Errol Flynn to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Its graceful archways and sweeping staircases harken back to those bygone days, while a meticulous renovation brings 21st-century elegance. Native son Chef Juan José Cuevas returned from the Big Apple to create a tantalizing, island-sourced menu. Couples of all kinds bond over the spa’s Time for Two journeys.

      Reviewed on: 28 Aug 2017

      The hotel is beautiful - the suites wonderful and the amenities with the suites, great! Having planned this trip well in advance, 2 of our 3 suites were not ready, which was a bit disappointing, but the front desk staff did their best to remedy that issue and gave us a room credit. It took a bit to get the rooms, so we walked around the grounds. The restaurants, especially Ola, is a wonderful way to start your day with the breakfast buffet and staff, so cheery and friendly. Lobby, pool areas, restaurants, etc. keep very clean and inviting. I would return without hesitation.
