“Fine for night before cruise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I had a free night and used here. It was a fine hotel in city area. It was close to grocery store. Room was clean and bed fine. I would stay briefly again. I would not use as week vacation base. On 6th floor at end of hall so noise not an issue.

We spent 2 nights here using free night certificates. It worked out great for us. We were given a very nice room (we are gold members) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We used it as a home base for exploring old San Juan and taking a tour of the Bacaradi factory. The staff told us about the bus that goes to San Juan and provided excellent suggestions on things to do and where to eat in old San Juan for a traditional Puerto Rican meal. Our first night we ate at hotel restaurant which was also good and had great sevice. Would definitely stay again because of its location and helpful staff.

We spent 3 days at this Marriott before cruising. The staff were very helpful, with information about getting around on our own. We were lucky to be here during the San Sebastion Festival. Staff helped us take the bus to old San Juan. Busses are 50 cents per person. Bring quarters.
The rooms are typical for this chain. We were on the 11th floor and had a view of the bay and the fort.
I would recommend this hotel.

Good location. Restaurants and grocery store near by. Older building, but well maintained. Helpful service. Valet parking really the only option which is an additional charge. No fan in bathroom and no window...one of my pet peeves.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view. We were on the 6th floor with a view towards the ocean.

This hotel is just for you if you enjoy:

headaches
walking up and down the stairs becuase the elevator doesn't work
having to continuously get new room keys because they don't work (3 times in 3 days)
calling for a cab and having someone else take it
not having a view from your room
airplane decibel-level toilets
late check-in times


All in all, we knew what we were getting ourselves into but this was the ONLY hotel available the weekend before NYE... and it lived up to and exceeded its negative expectations.

The only positive: The cleaning ladies do a nice job and the front desk staff is friendly, so i don't blame them one bit.

Did not like the location because there wasn't many restaurants close by or other things to do. You can only access free wifi from the lobby and not ya room which is ridiculous!!! The service in the dining area was very slow and expensive but the staff was polite, so good credit there. The whole time we was there the elevators were always occupied by staff and the electricity kept going out!! Definitely wouldn't stay there again.

Stayed here for two nights before a cruise. Great for taking the M3 bus (50 cents, no change given) to old San Juan bus station...where you can get on the free white trolly's that take you all over old San Juan. Folks on the bus were friendly and helpful. Old San Juan's small streets and forts are wonderful!

Rooms were clean and large and the beds great. The rennovation must be complete----as rooms were pleasant.

I liked being in a real neighborhood of Old San Juan---visiting the restaurants, drug stores, and grocery stores. Again, people were pleasant and helpful. More so than "back home."

Downsides---stay away from any room ending in 01---(101 and up) for those rooms are right next to the eleavator. And when we were there....there was a party going on in the room down the hall with people yelling each others names for two hours. That can happen anywhere....but being by the eleavator must have been a drag. Gettin a room at the end of the hall might be a good idea.

There are beggers in the area, but they don't persist and I didn't feel threatened or scared. I went to the stores a block down from the hotel, but I woudn't walk around there or old San Juan (and many places in the USA) by myself after 9:00 pm either.
