Hilton announced the completion of a major renovation project at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the birthplace of the piña colada.

The $100 million project comes as the property celebrates its 70th anniversary. The hotel says the remake was influenced “by the vibrant culture, lively colors and rich history of San Juan.”

It included a complete makeover of the guest rooms, now with a contemporary décor, new dining options, and a new fitness center and spa. The hotel modernized 65,000 square feet (6,039 square meters) of meeting and event space.

Other changes include new landscaping and a new tennis center.

The Caribe Hilton was Hilton’s first hotel outside of the continental United States when it opened on December 9, 1949. It was designed by Toto Ferrer, an architectural firm in San Juan.
