Aloft Hotels today announced the opening of Aloft San Juan, the first Aloft hotel in the Caribbean. By mixing art, technology, and music, Aloft San Juan introduces a new social scene with a fresh approach that differentiates itself from the traditional hotel offering.
Aloft San Juan arrives in Puerto Rico as part of the expansion and growth of PRISA Group with Caribe Hospitality and managed by Marriott International. With 177 rooms, this vibrant new boutique hotel features a loft-inspired design that redefines modern travel. The property invites guests to experience effortless travels in the city of San Juan due to its ideal location near Isla Grande Airport and Miramar, Old San Juan.
“We are changing Puerto Rico’s hospitality landscape as the only hotel located within San Juan’s premiere entertainment destination, El Distrito, and first Aloft hotel on the island as well as in the Caribbean,” said Toni Stoeckl, Global Brand Leader, Aloft Hotels and Vice President, Distinctive Select Brands for Marriott International. “With 135 hotels in the pipeline, we are proud of the global growth and demand of our design-driven Aloft brand.”
The Aloft brand brings its W XYZ® Bar to San Juan, a vibrant bar located next to the lobby offering crafted cocktails and light bites. During the day, the W XYZ® Bar serves as a perfect space for working and networking, and later at night it becomes a live music venue hosting the brand’s signature Live At Aloft Hotel program – a platform for emerging artists to perform intimate sets in front of travelers and locals.
Re:fuel by AloftSM offers 24/7 grab-and-go options ranging from light meals, snacks for every craving, healthy selections, beverages, and more.

Aloft San Juan’s flexible event spaces and convenient location near Puerto Rico Convention Center are perfect for industry-wide trade shows and company conferences. Similarly, open spaces and terraces overlooking the fountains of the Convention Center create the ideal environment for social events such as cocktails and weddings.
Located only a few minutes away from El Viejo San Juan, a historic area renowned for its cultural and gastronomic offering, the hotel is one of the anchor properties of El Distrito and the first to open in the 50,000 square-foot central plaza that will serve as the hub of all things fun and entertainment in Puerto Rico.
