2 friends and I went down to San Juan for a weekend to relax and see a new area. The hotel is located in Condado, about 2 blocks from the beach. Not a bad walk at all. Across the street there was a supermax (grocery store) which was convenient because we didn't feel like eating out every meal. If you're looking to go to Old San Juan for the touristy stuff it's a quick $15 cab ride, or you can take the bus (75 cents but the schedule is very unreliable, don't take it if you're in a hurry.)
As for the hotel itself it was very nice. The room was clean and stylish and the staff was very helpful. They helped make the trip amazing. One thing I was unaware of was the resort tax (for Internet, pool usage etc.). This is not a resort in mg opinion and I didn't use any of those amenities but when I explained that the staff was very helpful in resolving the issue.
There are a few restaurants within walking distance, including an UNO bar and grill. Most of the night life seemed to be in Old San Juan, or over at Brava on the other side of the city but there was a pretty cool club/collection of bars called Plan B about a block from the hotel.
