This hotel should be rated higher. Stayed with family and was pleasantly greeted by staff as soon as the taxi door opened in the driveway. Full assistance with luggage. Small line at registration. Easy registration and booked through discount travel website.
The room was very clean and air-conditioned with luxurious bed sheets and mattress. Bathroom was large and updated. Balcony big enough to enjoy the evening breeze with a cocktail overlooking the Carribean Sea and small fort. Very cool.
The bar lobby was spectacular and the garden and pool area were lively. Parking and car rental located across the street and Old San Juan attractions are about a mile's hike away. Small beaches also in walking distance. Most restaurants are within taxi distance, maybe 5 minutes drive. No shuttle to airport but a line of taxis always available.
The only thing I saw that might be a turn off was poorly maintained hotel hallways. Looks like they haven't painted in a while. However the roof was being replaced on another hotel building so it seems it's only a matter of time before the maintenance fixes it. Besides, you'd normaly spend 10 seconds in the hallways. Who cares?
Overall, very pleased, excellent service and accomodations in a great centralized location between Condado and Old San Juan areas.
