We booked a room at the Doubletree in Condado for two nights prior to a cruise. We stayed in a lovely Queen w/ Double Murphy beds (2 adults, 3 kids). The hotel staff was welcoming, friendly and very helpful. We had been in Puerto Rico last year and rented a villa in Luquillo for a week, but did not know what to expect from a hotel so close to town. We can honestly say that the people we encountered in the Condado area were far friendlier and warmer. The hotel itself is impeccably clean, updated and warm. The pool area, although small, is very charming and the kids had a great time. In addition, the hotel staff will provide you with a pass to use the beach, pool & facilities at La Concha Resort in Condado. The resort is a 15-minute walk from the Doubletree and well worth the trip. In addition, the small gym at the Doubletree is set up well and very clean. There is also a nice little supermarket directly across the street, Bebo's restaurant around the corner and Diana's pizzeria down the street as well. All in all, we had a wonderful pre-cruise stay. The hotel is very well worth the price!!
