Designed by legendary Miami Beach architect Roy F. France, El San Juan Hotel officially opened to the public on February 1, 1958. One design element that has survived almost 60 years is its stunning lobby, constructed of cherry mahogany from Santo Domingo, all intricately hand carved on-site by Spaniard Jose Laguna and a team of 15 Puerto Rican artisans. Another iconic feature is the oval-shaped, glittering, hand blown chandelier from Czechoslovakia, the third largest of its kind in the world.

The Banyan Tree, located adjacent to the Caña patio and the Wellness Pool, is another widely recognized hotel landmark. Over 300-years-old, the tree has survived damaging hurricanes, standing sentinel to witness many wonderful weddings, receptions, and social activities. It is still one of the most requested venues today.

Throughout the 1960's, Puerto Rico was very popular with American tourists and El San Juan Hotel was the quintessence of notable headline entertainment. During the hotel’s first three decades, internationally known headliners performed weekly on its stage, including but not limited to Sammy Davis Jr., Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Fisher, Carol Channing and Liza Minelli among other recognizable celebrities.

Fast forward to today and El San Juan Hotel continues its entertainment legacy as a Puerto Rican icon with worldwide recognition.
