The first Residence Inn by Marriott project in Puerto Rico is set to open in November 2021. The nine-story, 177,555-square-foot hotel will also be the first new branded flagship property in 25 years in Isla Verde, a popular tourist and residential area.
Interlink is the developer and in charge of construction of the $50 million project, which includes 231 rooms for long- and short-term guests. It is scheduled to open in November 2021. Álvarez-Díaz & Villalón (AD&V) will serve as the design firm on the project.
The hotel’s 4,000-square-foot restaurant space overlooking Avenida Isla Verde will have a ground-floor terrace, which will be open to guests as well as the community at large. The reception and common areas will also be on the first level. The upper floors will house rooms ranging from 434 square feet to 588 square feet.
Other hotel amenities include a swimming pool, a playground area with water features, an interior/exterior bar, an exterior terrace, a meeting space, and a complete gym. All guest rooms will have a full kitchen, a work area with desk, and a separate living space. The property is also located minutes from the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, Isla Verde Beach, and walking distance from the area’s numerous restaurants and shops.
Sustainability measures are being incorporated throughout the project, from the start of construction to its operational phase. They include energy-saving and water-efficient equipment and measures as well as lighting controls, thermal comfort measures, electric vehicle charging stations, indoor air quality management plans, and enhanced systems commissioning.
