This hotel was exactly as described by reviews on TripAdvisor and we enjoyed a great stay. Their welcome cookies are just marvelous and worth every calorie (310 of them). Our room was clean and very well-designed and ergonomic (excellent use of space). The hotel staff were very helpful and always pleasant.
We used the T5 bus (stops are just across and up the street from the hotel going into town and right near the hotel entrance on the way back). At only 75 cents each ride, it only cost us $3.00/day getting into and out of Old San Juan - and we used the free trolleys (2 routes run there) to save on our feet for walking at the sights. Fair warning though - you have to be patient, sometimes it might be an hour before the T5 bus comes, another time only 20-30 min. (even at the bus terminus in Old San Juan!). There doesn't seem to be a set schedule. Plus you need exact change per person (the front desk was very nice about giving us change each day).
The SuperMax grocery store across the street was very handy (be sure to try the locally grown bananas - so much sweeter than those we get in the US) and we used the hotel recommended restaurants nearby ("Silk" for Japanese/Chinese and "Under the Trees" did a fabulous fire-grilled burger). We had a wonderful breakfast at the Doubletree (again very accommodating and great service) and also used their 2 for 1 Happy Hour one day. Definitely we would recommend and stay here again and they deserve their great rating on TripAdvisor.
