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 210 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. Read less

Having our wedding reception at Hotel El Convento was truly the best decision we made. Besides being beautiful and full of history, every last person involved with our wedding and our stay at the hotel went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We had to make a last minute venue change (as in--the night before), and they could not have been more accommodating. The food was fantastic and there were so many choices! A special thank you to Ely Rivera--working with you was a true pleasure. And to the waiters Luis and Matteo---my family still talks about you! El Convento takes service to a new level. I cannot recommend them enough!

I fell in love with Hotel El Convento as a little girl and always knew that that's where my wedding reception would be. 20+ years later my dream came true! We had 80 guest in El Salon Paoli. Everything from our cocktail hour, to dinner and our stay was incredible!

If you want a Spanish feel to your wedding, El Convento is the place to choose. Our guest are still raving about the food and service.

Thank you, El Convento for making our experience memorable!

El Convento helped us coordinate and put together our dream wedding! We cannot put in words how grateful we are to have Ruben Alvarez and his staff help plan the wedding. Many guests thought the food was the best they've ever had at wedding. In addition to the wedding itself, our guests and ourselves really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Everyone from the front desk and valet are so helpful and carry a positive attitude. We look forward to our next visit to Puerto Rico and plan on staying at El Convento again!

El Convento provided the reception venue for our wedding. First of all, the place is absolutely gorgeous. If you like old world charm, this is the place. Our catering / events manager at the hotel was Glorimar Ortiz, and she was absolutely great. Very nice, very responsive, and she went out of her way to alleviate the concerns of my wife during the planning process. Our reception was held in Salon Campeche, the biggest of their function rooms, and also the grandest. And the food was worth it. It was delivered timely (no one was looking around wondering where the food was) and was very very good. We can't stress this enough.

My wife and I would recommend Hotel El Convento to everyone looking for a charming wedding reception venue in Old San Juan.
