Expert Review

Renaissance Hotels spent $220 million converting this mid-20th century, tropical classic into San Juan’s trendiest address. The hotel’s best architectural elements were left in place during the 2008 renovation, including the voluptuous seashell-shaped restaurant, Perla, which seems to float in a reflecting pool. Forward-leaning design elements color the 248 rooms, with 37-inch flat-screen TVs, work desks, and beds with vanilla-hued leather headboards. The lobby is a see-and-be-seen hot-spot for guests and locals alike, with patrons spilling over into the nearby patio and pool area, which has plenty of secluded seating for VIPs tired of the limelight. Those who want to take a chance with Lady Luck can wander down to the Casino del Mar anytime; it's open 24 hours a day. Beach access and a location within easy walking distance to a number of popular restaurants, including Iron Chef Roberto Trevino's Bar Gitano, make La Concha even more attractive.
