Hotel El Convento, one of Old San Juan’s most popular landmark hotels, recently completed a multimillion-dollar design and architectural renovation to its 81 rooms. The renovation blends Old World charm with Puerto Rico’s vibrant and modern energy.
Led by interior designer Wanda Torress, who also oversaw the unveiling of Hotel El Convento’s adults-only sister property Palacio Provincal, the renovations see organic hues of cream, gray and terracotta incorporated throughout to complement the hotel’s original motif. Mahogany and tartufo wood form custom furniture sourced from Brazil. Warm, dimmable LED lighting adds a modern feel to the rooms, as well. Other updates include strategically placed convenience plugs for the ultimate comfort.
Hotel El Convento, once a Carmelite convent nearly 400 years ago, features a heated plunge pool and Jacuzzi, five meeting rooms and three on-site dining venues serving contemporary Puerto Rican cuisine. The property also boasts daily complimentary Manager’s Wine and Cheese Cocktail hour, El Convento Beach Club access and a 24-hour coffee and tea station.
If fabulous food and beverages are a must-have for any weekend getaway, then look no further than the City of Brotherly Love. Whether your palate has a penchant for vibrant Latin American fare or cozy French cuisine, whether you're an oenophile looking to swirl, sniff and sip your way around the globe or you’d rather sample farm-to-glass cocktails, Philly’s got it all this fall. (With the exception of Bolo, which is a short taxi or Uber ride away and definitely worth the trip, the rest of these spots are all within walking distance of each other.)
Whether it's the people, the craic (fun) or the coasts, travelers always find something to love about the island of Ireland. What fills your heart?
From Santoríni to Dubai to New York, some hotels just have that “it” factor that draws visitors far and wide. For some hotels it’s their proximity to popular landmarks and attractions, for others it’s their amenities. But these hotels have something few can claim: a true room with a view.

The relatively new Il Tinello East, opened in September 2022, descends from Il Tinello West, the old-school Italian restaurant operating across town on West 56th Street for 38 years. For folks working or living on the east side of Manhattan however, finding a new Il Tinello on East 46th Street was like a gift from heaven. Il Tinello East is the perfect “new” old-school Italian restaurant for a mid-week business lunch with a client or two, or a dinner with your best friend, sister/brother or parent. Perfect, that is, if everyone is in the mood for a quiet restaurant meal in Manhattan (a rarity these days) with friendly waiters in white gloves and exceptionally good traditional Italian cuisine on the menu.
