About Hotel El Convento

A unique place for weddings, Hotel El Convento is located in the Heart of Old San Juan and has set new standards for luxury, comfort and service; at the same time, preserving its rich and historic value. Just across the street from the San Juan Bautista Cathedral and walking distance from Castillo San Felipe del Morro, it is the perfect scenery for unforgettable pictures and magical memories. Hotel El Convento is the only member in Puerto Rico of "Small Luxury Hotels of the World" and the oldest member of "Historic Hotels of America".

Hotel El Convento has different spaces to make your wedding day just what you always thought it would be like:

Salon Campeche has a maximum capacity of 200 guests for sit-down dinner. Its biggest attributes include: marble black and white floor, majestic 50-foot vault ceiling, a colorful mural and antique stained glass windows.

Salon Martorell was designed by Puerto Rican artist Antonio Martorell and it is a gem of his art and creativity. In this salon he developed the theme "Las Monjas Letradas" or "Nuns and Letters", thus honoring those emblematic of both faith and literature in the Spanish Language. This salon has a maximum capacity of 40 guests for sit-down dinner; perfect for intimate dinners or cocktails.

The interior courtyard is the perfect location for ceremonies and cocktails. It is surrounded by tropical foliage and a 100-year old Nispero tree. During the day is the hotel's main restaurant, but in the afternoons it is transformed into to the most magical place in Old San Juan.

The catering department offers personalized attention to every detail of your wedding; from food and beverage to entertainment, décor and cake.

    Simply Perfection Across the Board

    There are not enough good things I can say about this Hotel both as a hotel and a wedding venue. The service, food and overall experience were A+++. My wedding exceeded my wildest expectations and I had high ones! If I could do it all over again, I would 100% do it at Hotel El Convento. A truly unforgettable wedding for both myself and my guests. We will be talking about it for years to come. Would highly, highly recommend!

    Ely and Diane made me feel like a queen on my wedding day!

    My husband and I wanted something low-key and budget friendly. For years, El Convento had been my “dream wedding” venue. I never believed I could afford such a beautiful reception. On a whim, I reached out to El Convento’s WONDERFUL catering manager, Ely Rivera, who provided us with a flexible quote to meet many budgets.

    Ely consistently worked with us via email and in person throughout the whole process. She reached out to us when our options could change. For an additional charge, she took care of booking La Rogativa via the National Park Service and provided chairs for the ceremony, plus a backup indoor room for in climate weather. I had previously attempted to contact the NPS on my own, but could not get through to anybody. Ely was able to use her professional contacts and take care of it.

    Due to our budget constraints, we didn’t book flowers or any other extra decorations. We had candles as the centerpieces, and used the linens/china/chairs/etc that came with the base package. At no point did anyone make us feel like we were beneath the standards of a luxury hotel. Ely even recommended to me that we use the gold chairs to match the china, rather than simply using my first choice of white.

    Ely was present on the day of our wedding and gave us all the cues we needed for walking down the isle, the grand entrance, first dances, etc. Trust me, you will need this extra help.

    Another fantastic element of my wedding was Diane, our personal attendant. She is YOUR server. The entire time we were taking our photos, dancing, and socializing, Diane was there. I had no idea this was part of the package. Initially, I thought she was simply going to bring us our drinks - until she helped me change into my dancing shoes! Seriously - Does your husband want to take his jacket and tie off to dance? Diane will make sure it gets back to your room. Are you too busy and nervous to eat? Diane will make sure you have a plate wrapped up for later. Do you want to step away from the crowd to have a smoke break? Diane will find you a discreet corner. Whatever you need, ask Diane.

    I cannot recommend El Convento more. Five stars, all around.
