Nash Mawani, the proprietor of the 56-room Comfort Inn San Juan, averred North American travelers were the primary target of the downtown hotel, but he was determined to attract more Caribbean residents to experience the Puerto Rican charm of the value-centered property.

Mawani, a veteran hotelier with investments around the world, said islands such as St. Maarten/St. Martin, Dominica, Dominican Republic and the US Virgin Islands - because of their proximity to Puerto Rico - were key markets. And there were many reasons to visit.
