Fodor's Expert Review Condado Vanderbilt Hotel

1055 Av. Ashford, San Juan, 00907, Puerto Rico

The one-time home of the Vanderbilt family has been restored to its grand, early-20th-century, Spanish revival–style and transformed into this luxurious hotel. The marble lobby—with its original sweeping staircases, graceful arches, and striking chandeliers—exudes elegance. The rooms are spacious, and the service is impeccable. Take advantage of the hotel's several pools, cabanas, hammam spa, and fine-dining 1919 restaurant.
