A Head Above the Rest: Verdanza Hotel, San Juan, Caters to the Taller than Average Guest


Verdanza Hotel Customizes Rooms with NBA-Certified 96-Inch Beds

San Juan, Puerto Rico (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

Verdanza Hotel in Isla Verde now caters to tall travelers with extra long beds that provide a comfort fit for even the average six-foot-seven NBA player. The hotel, which last month served as the host hotel for the regional basketball championship Centrobasket 2012, has fitted 10 junior suites with extra large beds by Sealy. The industry standard for king-size beds is 80 inches long; five of the newly-reconfigured rooms at Verdanza feature 84-inch long California Kings, while another five offer extra-long 96 inch (8 feet) long beds. “For the taller-than-average, travel can be an exercise in discomfort. With them in mind, Verdanza offers the relief of comfortable and practical accommodations for a restful sleep without feet dangling off the bed or – provided they have the bed to themselves – lying diagonally with little wiggle room,” explains Ricky Newman, general manager of Verdanza Hotel.

The tall-friendly accommodations in junior suites are not offered at a premium. “The extra leg room makes all the difference in the world for the very tall, but our guests do not pay more for the convenience,” added Newman, in line with the hotel's service standard of making the guest feel at home.

Verdanza Hotel, a member of Summit Hotels & Resorts, is the only independent full-service hotel in the Metropolitan area of Puerto Rico, with a focus on a more personalized approach to hospitality without sacrificing the amenities and conveniences of a full service property. Located steps from the beach in the Isla Verde tourism district, the property has 222 rooms with 9 suites, three restaurants, wine and tapas bar, café, an expansive pool area with Jacuzzi and water Spray Park, and more than 15,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space. Perks include free internet access, 100% organic bath products, pet-friendly guestrooms, and a privileged location within walking distance of restaurants, casinos, and entertainment options.
