“Lovely stay in Old San Juan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We spent 4 nights here pre-cruise and loved exploring Old San Juan - cobble streets, historic forts, free trolley hop-on buses, safe city and friendly people. Unsung spot as we had never heard of anyone else coming here. Hotel very comfortable - clean- lovely king size bed - AC worked great -harbour view - welcome rooftop pool after hot day exploring city. Staff were attentive and helpful.(let us book in early and leave later than check-out time) Yummy appys and wonderful mojitos on the restaurant veranda.
Excellent buffet breakfast included and 4th night's stay free. We could have done without the casino (seemed very popular with locals) but it did not disturb our stay.Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: we asked for harbour view and king size bed.

We spent a pre-cruise stay at the Sheraton. Our room was spacious and overlooked several cruise piers but was otherwise unimpressive. The carpet looked like it was straight out of the 60's, the phones didn't work right and our mattress literally sagged in the middle. The furnishings were also very dated. We are platinum in the Starwood system and stay at quite a few Sheratons. This one lacked the homey comfortable feeling and service level that I usually associate with Sheratons. Of course with location, location, location there are some pluses. Old Town San Juan is a vibrant, fun place to be both day and night and this hotel is in the center of the action! We found great places to eat and drink VERY close by. There is a casino right downstairs in the lobby (but no crap table).

Stayed at the Sheraton post-cruise. Staff were very friendly and found us a room even though we arrived very early on Saturday (around 10:00 am). Hotel is well located, but note that no all cruise ships use the terminal across the street! Room was large and clean, with a very comfortable bed, but there was a strange chemical smell in the room that was objectionable until you got used to it. Nice balcony to view the harbor, but also had to kill two very large cockroaches (though we never saw any IN the room)! Still, there aren't many choices if you choose to stay in Old San Juan and the Sheraton is a decent choice.

Thanks for your feedback. Indeed, we are experimenting with several cleaning products to ensure in room freshness. Also appreciate you stepping on a few "cucarachas" outdoors :-0 We do have an extensive prevention program in place as required by the brand. Hope you return soon.

We stayed at the hotel a few days after a cruise to visit Old San Juan. The location is very good. It is easy to visit Old San Juan without the need of a taxi or taking the bus. It is close from the cruise port. You can see the big boat from the hotel.

I was very happy we booked this hotel. It was clean, staff were extremely helpful and within walking distance to all sites and restaurants in Old San Juan. The rooms were clean and simple, complete with safe, coffee maker, iron and cable tv. Beds and pillows were super comfy. There was also a vending machine for drinks on the floor. There are two parking garages behind the hotel, the first one is $2.40/hr (very expensive), but the one right after (much older looking) is $4 from 6pm to 6am and only $0.50/hr thereafter. The front desk can give you a map of the city where you can plan sites to see as well as the spots where the free tram passes. You can use it almost like a hop on hop off service. There were a load of restaurants and a CVS all within a 5 min walk.

Thanks for capturing the essence of this privileged location. Everything you wish to experience is just steps away. I have been at this property for almost two years and still have plenty of restaurants and attractions in my list to visit. The new trolley's now have double the capacity and soon we will also have a light rail tram that can take you to other places beyond Old San Juan. Anyhow, it was a true pleasure having you here and look forward to your next visit.

We spent 4 nights at the Sheraton Old San Juan before and after a cruise. This hotel is right by the piers and it is an easy walk to lots of sights in Old San Juan. The room was ok, nothing to brag about but it was clean (our room had a view of the parking structure across the side street) and the staff was friendly. Across the street you can catch a ferry over to the Bacardi rum factory which was a fun adventure. Much cheaper to catch ferry & then a taxi, then to take taxi all the way around. All an all, this hotel is very convient to wandering around Old San Juan and a wide assortment of places to eat.
