Hotel El Convento

By Chris Boyle

Gloria Vanderbilt Master Suite

Master Bedroom / Gloria Vanderbilt Master Suite

Key selling points: Named for its most illustrious guest, this beautifully classical suite may depart from the historic hotel’s roots as a Carmelite convent established in 1651, but by no means is it overwrought.

Exquisite décor marks the living and dining rooms, and trompe l’oeil walls the master suite. In the marble bath, you’ll find a pampering Jacuzzi, and through two sets of Spanish louver doors, a veranda overlooking Old San Juan’s Plaza de las Monjas.

Standout service: Staff threw a surprise birthday party for a young guest turning seven; even staff members who had the day off came in to celebrate the special occasion.

Style: Classically ornate, by Jorge Rossello, 2007
