And to think that this hotel was used, mainly, by US East coast society girls and their families (back in the 30's, 40's and 50's) when they would come to Ashford ave.'s Presbyterian hospital for abortion (when they were knocked up).

Puerto Rican high society girls would go to Saint Thomas for abortions, while mainland girls who could afford it, would come to San Juan.

Since, forever, abortions were carried out in convents.

In fact, I remember when San Juan's Catholic nun's convent (across the metro Cathedral) was being turned into a hotel, back in the late 1960's, that a huge cemetery, full of fetus' bones was discovered inside its underground tunnel system.
