La Concha Resort Joins Marriott’s Autograph Collection Hotels

La Concha Resort in San Juan’s Condado district is the latest addition to Marriott International’s Autograph Collection, as announced by Fahad Ghaffar, partner at Paulson Puerto Rico, the company that owns and operates the hotel.

“La Concha Resort has had a long-standing relationship with Marriott, previously forming part of its Renaissance Hotels group for 15 years. Joining Marriott’s Autograph Collection is a huge step forward in La Concha’s legacy as one of Puerto Rico’s premier hotels,” said John Paulson, president of Paulson & Co.

With 473 rooms and suites, La Concha Resort becomes the first Autograph Collection Resort in Puerto Rico. Among its main attractions are the Casino del Mar, which houses the newly built BetMGM Sportsbook, and Fifty Eight Club, at which Grammy Award-winner Bad Bunny has performed multiple times. Originally built in 1958, then renovated and reopened in 2007, the hotel has long been a key component of Puerto Rico’s tourism industry.

The Autograph Collection is part of Marriott’s premium tier of hotels. It includes more than 270 independent hotels and resorts located in destinations across more than 45 countries and territories worldwide. As part of the upgrade, Ghaffar announced the investment of $45 million in a full renovation of 238 oceanfront suites, besides new additions to La Concha’s offerings and amenities, including the construction of a new spa and renovations to the Beach Club. The hotel will also be the home of Tekka Bar, a high-end sushi restaurant concept by Las Vegas restaurateur Takashi Segawa. A new restaurant will also be coming to the iconic Perla space, to be announced in the coming months. The group owns and operates over 10 restaurants, including STK and Serafina.

La Concha Resort is part of The Condado Collection of hotels owned and operated by Paulson Puerto Rico. Other hotels in The Condado Collection include the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel and Condado Ocean Club. The group owns The St. Regis Hotel and Spa, as well.
