San Juan’s Historic Condado Vanderbilt Hotel to Reopen
Hotel & Resort | October 06, 2010
The historic Condado Vanderbilt in San Juan, Puerto Rico, is scheduled to reopen in the spring of 2011. Built by Frederick William Vanderbilt in 1919, the Condado Vanderbilt attracted elite clientele including heads of state, royalty and celebrities. The hotel also served as a home base for legendary pilot Charles Lindbergh. Vanderbilt selected architect Whitney Warren, whose other work includes New York’s Biltmore, Commodore and Ambassador hotels, as well as Grand Central Station, to design the Condado Vanderbilt. The restored property will feature the original grand staircase and original floors and moldings. For more information, visit www.condadovanderbilthotel.com.
