Hotel Rumbao, a Tribute Portfolio hotel, is now open in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, following a multi-million-dollar transformation to deliver a new experience representative of the history and culture of the island. The 245-guest room and suites property has been reimagined to deliver a modern gateway to another world, on the waterfront and only minutes from the port, is one of the most noteworthy hospitality projects currently in San Juan.

Drawing inspiration from the historical city, the interior design was overseen by Lang & Schwander and fuses a vibrant and romantic take on modern design with elements of nostalgia that pay homage to the area’s storied past. A rich and colorful palette captures the Caribbean flair with elements of greenery. The use of natural woods and finishes, envelops spaces in comfort while delivering on an intentional design. Water and old city views are welcomed in through large windows and in some rooms and balconies, bringing the energy of Old San Juan to the forefront.  In addition, the building’s exterior signature blue hue is a backdrop for intricate iron work visible from the bustling streets and thoroughfares.  Furnishings and accessories bring a geometric and colorful sense of play to the magnetic design, inviting guests to embrace the ethos of Vivo – a concept of living larger than life and dancing to the beat in celebration of San Juan’s history and people.

Hotel Rumbao is more than a hotel. Its indie spirit offerings and programming set the stage for visitors to delve deep into local flavors and traditions with destination restaurant Kueros Island Bar & Kitchen at the epicenter of the culinary experience. Taking inspiration from the local landscape and energy of the surrounding area and culture, Kueros embodies culinary history and tradition, while providing an energetic yet approachable atmosphere designed to enhance the authentic menu. Dishes will be paired with traditional dance and entertainment, sharing the nature and spirit of Puerto Rico.

Located in the Historic Old San Juan District at 100 Brumbaugh, Hotel Rumbao is at the heartbeat of the historic and romantic old San Juan area, situated on the waterfront within walking distance of the port and only steps away from world-class shopping, art galleries, and museums. Hotel Rumbao features a meeting space perfect for corporate and leisure gatherings including celebrations and weddings, serving as the ideal location for business and pleasure.
