Comfort Inn San Juan Taps Intra-Caribbean Travelers

SAN JUAN – A popular hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico has announced plans to increase its share of visitors from other parts of the Caribbean.

Nash Mawani, the proprietor of the 56-room Comfort Inn San Juan, averred North American travelers were the primary target of the downtown hotel, but he was determined to attract more Caribbean residents to experience the Puerto Rican charm of the value-centered property.

Mawani, a veteran hotelier with investments around the world, said islands such as St. Maarten/St. Martin, Dominica, Dominican Republic and the US Virgin Islands – because of their proximity to Puerto Rico – were key markets. And there were many reasons to visit.

“We welcome fellow islanders whether they come to shop, attend business conventions, receive medical attention or simply relax,” said Mawani, who pointed to Comfort Inn San Juan as being ideally suited for corporate travelers interested in big savings.

Mawani noted Comfort Inn San Juan plans to tap into the Caribbean market through word-of-mouth marketing and supporting Caribbean-focused events and initiatives. It will also leverage the cooperative marketing efforts and regional footprint established by Choice Hotels International in the Caribbean.

The Comfort Inn hotel is located in the popular Condado district of San Juan, just one block from the Atlantic Ocean, and close to historic Old San Juan, featuring cobblestone streets, the El Morro fortress (Castillo de San Felipe del Morro), and hundreds of buildings dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. The Port of San Juan in Old San Juan and La Concha Casino are only two blocks away from the hotel.

The property recently received a major upgrade with the unveiling of a brand new lobby and new lighting fixtures. This follows a comprehensive room refurbishment two years ago. All spacious guest rooms are air conditioned and come equipped with cable television with free HBO, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards. Some feature an ocean view.

Located in the trendy Condado Beach area and convenient to Old San Juan, nearby attractions include the Casa Bacardi factory tour and San Juan Cathedral (Catedral de San Juan). The Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport is just five miles away and the largest mall in the Caribbean, Plaza Las Américas, boasting more than 300 shops and services, is within close proximity.

Comfort Inn San Juan offers daily complimentary breakfast with hot waffles, and a refreshing swim in the hotel’s outdoor pool.
