Along a winding street on Old San Juan’s cobblestoned lanes, you’ll find local artist Jan D’Esopo’s hotel, a lush retreat within six connected historic town houses. Inside is a labyrinth of staircases, open-air patios, hidden nooks, and no fewer than 19 gardens—some with night-blooming cerius, others with jasmine and orchids. The 22 rooms have draping floral tapestries, carved wooden headboards, and framed watercolors depicting scenes of the city by D’Esopo herself, who can often be found chatting with guests in her poolside studio.
