“A good alternative to a resort hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

There are more impressive hotels in the Hilton group in Puerto Rico (and of course other hotel brands), that are in better locations, better facilities, but also they cost more. This hotel is a good alternative.
It's in Condado, a good location in its own right, some good local restaurants and cafés, and a beach.
The hotel is a couple of blocks from the main street in Condado or the beach. Local buses stop right outside, so easy to get to old San Juan or the other way to Isla Verde and only 75 cents.
$17 by taxi from the airport and a fairly easy ride.
In the hotel breakfast is good, staff are excellent. There's a small pool, a gym, free WiFi, decent size rooms, comfortable.

The only reason this hotel didn't get 5* from me is that there is no free parking. We ended up using the valet service for $20/day instead of the parking which is $15/day (and not located next to the hotel)

Otherwise, this was a great hotel! Room was modern and tastefully decorated, had a fridge in there for storing drinks..... there is a large supermarket right across the street which you can use to stock up on drinks and food. The pool and hot tub was nice, though probably small for the busy season, and with no bar by the pool, there's no problem bringing your own drink down!

Location was good too - a short walk to numerous restaurants, and a short drive to the interstate for getting around the island.

I would highly recommend!

This property is conveniently located two blocks from the Beach, across the street from a fully stocked Mercado (grocery store), beautiful grounds, friendly staff (front desk and Concierge were especially helpful). There is a great "inner courtyard" glass enclosure with park benches. At night, the atrium fills with soothing sounds of Coqui (frogs) making the calls. It's really a relaxing and contemplative surrounding.
The rooms are ultra modern and very clean and functional.
The hotel is a $20 cab ride to the Airport or cruise terminal.

Room Tip: The 10-12 garden / pool rooms on the first floor are the best ones in the hotel. Your room leads to...

Rooms are clean and updated. There is a restaurant located on premises which is very convenient. They have a small but functional gym. They have a pool and hot tub if you have time for that. Overall a good business hotel centrally located across from a supermarket and within a block of restaurants for added convenience.

This is a beautiful and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I would stay here over and over again. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very welcoming. I felt special when I walked into the room.

Rent a car even if you can't read the signs this palce is easy to get to no matter where you are going. A couple blocks from the beach. 24 HOUR grocery store directly across the street. Nice restraurant that is reasonably priced. Hotel lives up to the Hilton name but the room kinda makes you scratch your head. Still nice though just not a Hilton Room. Great Staff. Nicholos and Courtney are awesome. They are willing to help with anything. Great staff. Stay here you will not regret it if you are on a budget. Look out for the 50 dollar a night deposit that is automatically added to your balance and that whole total pluss taxes are place on your card. other than that great stay. This is now my fav spot in San Juan UNTIL I FIND somehting better.

Recently stayed at the San Juan Doubletree for three nights. The staff is awesome (they leave you voicemails, if you leave a do not disturb sign) (They also give you delicious cookies on arrival.) The area isn't the greatest, their is a 24 hr grocery store next door but some of the area looks seedy at best. However, I walked several times to the beach without a problems. The location isn't perfect but the value is excellent. You are still close enough to walk to the beach and there is a bus stop close to take a bus into Old San Juan if that's your cup of tea. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Corner suites are a little larger
