At CasaBlanca Hotel you will receive personalized service, our primary goal is for you to have the best time and experience Puerto Rico as a local. Although it changed owners in December of 2012 it originally opened in 2009 after three years of remodeling. The building used to be residential apartments under the address 69 Fortaleza St, and the current lobby was a retail store at 316 Fortaleza. Its construction year is undetermined, although nearby buildings read 1810. We believe a two-story building was there originally and then it was remodeled into a five story building in the early 90's.
Be dazzled by our 12th-century Old Spanish Chandelier and 20ft ceilings, while receiving a warm welcome by our staff as you walk into the inner Spanish courtyard with natural light. Walls and columns are thick and made out of solid brick. Horizontal paint designs make columns a beautiful Moroccan accent. The furniture is all restored antique mix of Spanish and French, and the lighting features are all Indonesian and Moroccan transporting you to an entire different era. Enjoy our complimentary coffee in the lobby and 20% discount at our Café for a good head start!
Original floors were carefully removed and treated and then placed in the shape of oriental rugs along the elongated lobby. The floors in the rooms are also in their original state, whether bare concrete or unpolished granite. The stairs are wide and illuminated with both artificial and natural lighting that comes from an oversized skylight that leads to the terrace. The original Moroccan design goes all the way from the lobby to the terrace with oversized stone bathtubs that overlook Old San Juan. Soaking in the tubs after a long day of exploring, read your book or just sun/star bathe.
Our 32 rooms are all different depending on the location, and we have all new microfiber linens and towels along with fine amenities for your enjoyment. Hairdryer and irons are available upon request. Since all the surrounding buildings share walls with CasaBlanca remember that most of our rooms have windows to the interior atriums we have created for natural light. Only balcony rooms and Suites have a view of the city. Please pack light and allow our staff to help you with your bags up to your room. We expect to have an elevator installed in the following low season of 2014 for future enjoyment.
We hope you choose CasaBlanca as your introduction to Puertorrican culture and ancient Spanish legacy!
