If you're looking for a large, modern hotel within walking distance of Old San Juan, this is your best bet. The gems of the city are all within easy walking distance. The rooms were very comfortable. The hotel has recently undergone a face lift. So, I'm not sure whether the reviews calling the place "older" are still relevant. The breakfast is very nice though I always think hotel breakfasts ($16) are overpriced. Be sure to check and see if breakfast is included with your rate or you'll have a big surprise.
I didn't go to the pool because there was no shade but rather took advantage of the surrounding area. There are loads of restaurants and sights nearby - and it's located right across from the cruise ship terminal if that happens to be in your travel plans.
One thing that always annoys me about SPG properties is that they have a program to collect SPG points in return for reducing housekeeping/towel changes. But, the only place this is advertised is on a little hang tag on BEHIND the do not disturb sign. I always forget to participate. That should be something said at check-in. This is an easy fix and isn't specific to this property.More
