The hotel opened in October 1963 as the Puerto Rico-Sheraton Hotel and was one of the main lodging spots in Condado. At the time, it was famous for its Olympic-sized swimming pool. Also, it was the venue for lots of sports activities like boxing. It was renamed the Dupont Plaza Hotel in 1980.
In 1986, the hotel was the site of the second deadliest hotel fire in U.S. history, started by disgruntled employees in the middle of a labor/salary dispute. The fire claimed 97 lives and caused 140 injuries. The ruined hotel sat vacant until it was renovated and reopened in 1995 as the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino.
