“PreCruise Stay”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Stayed here 1/11/14 Good location for a precruise stay. We did not arrive at the airport until 4:50 pm, by the time we collected our luggage and traveled it was 6:00 by the time we reached the D/T (which was anticipated) had dinner at the Le Tree (on premise restaurant) fair. We selected a Garden/Pool view 1st floor room. Clean property, large rooms, Special for $1.00 more included breakfast for two and that was decent. Super market across the street with a great wine selection w/ fair prices. To be fair, I booked this hotel 4 days before flying out, due to a power loss at the hotel that I booked back in June for my precruise stay in OSJ - Thought that the D/T was priced rather high, but didn't want to sleep on the pier either. Aprox. a 15 minute ride to the the Pan Am pier to catch the ship. For catching a cruise we left the hotel at 11:00 and boarded at 11:45 (had to wait a few extra minutes for the ship to clear customs). Independently, there were at least forty people staying there, that sailed on RCCL's Adventure. The local tax and the resort fee is what pushes the price to be in excess. But, if you arrive early you can use the Hilton's (a sister resort near the beach) pool etc - Just request a day pass at the front desk of the D/T. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Kudos on the warm chocolate chip cookies!

Room Tip: We chose the Garden view 1st floor, sliding glass doors directly facing the pool and jacuzzi. Anoth...

After reading the reviews of hotels in San Juan we chose the Doubletree Inn for an extra day stay after a cruise. We have stayed other places in San Juan, but found this very convenient, expecially since you can use one of their two "sister" properties if you want to spend a day at the beach. Our room was small, but well appointed, and we were within walking distance of nearby restaurants. The taxi service was efficient, plus, the extra day made for a much more relaxing day after leaving the ship. We will stay there again on our next cruise.

Room Tip: This doesn't concern a room, but does concern the their "sister" properties. Evident...

Hotel was amazing, service with was excellent. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Doubltree in San Juan. We were given a beautiful room and experienced top quality customer service. This was a great hotel with great value for someone that doesn’t mind having a beachfront view. The property is 10 minute walk to the beach and supermarket is right across the street. Location is conveniently located to nightlife, Condado area casino district, close to highways, and easy access by vehicle to Old San Juan. The room was clean, modern, very comfortable bed and bedding, the pool was nice and most importantly excellent service and great value. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get great value for their money.

Not sure why this ranks #2 on the Tripadvisor list.
It is rated a 3 star, and it is that, no more, no less.
Location: not many touristy sites around. Art Museum is 2 blocks away. Supermarket is across the street. Borders on Lioza street, with several restaurants nearby. "Brasilia" is popular. $15.00 cab ride to Condado beach area, Old Town or cruise ship docks. All taxis in this area are 'flat fee', not metered.

One comment: they charge a $40 plus 'Service Fee' over and above the advertised room rate and separate from tax. Not sure what it buys and why it's not included in the room rate, although I have an idea.

Room Tip: 200x (1 - 10) are all poolside, with lounge chairs, tables etc on the poolside balcony. Hot tub is n...

This is a really nice hotel with an easy walk to the beach. For the price over New Years, and the walk to the beach we really can't complain. For the most part, the service was also really fantastic. They will give you a warm cookie whenever you ask!

Our observations:

There are two towers. We had 3 rooms in the tower with rooms in the 1000's. One of our rooms got "upgraded" to the tower with rooms in the 100's. The couple in the room in the 100's said the rooms were almost identical except their room was much smaller.

We had reserved rooms with 2 queen size beds, but each room was only equipped with 2 full size beds.

The pool and hot tub were both really enjoyable and most of the staff were really fantastic. Our only real complaint with the staff was Peter, who was rude to us while we were checking in (He said we didn't have reservations, then rolled his eyes at us when he eventually found them. He then argued with us that we only had one room under Patel when we had two.). We asked around with the other staff and they said he's normally very helpful/nice, so maybe he was just having a bad week.

If you have a room in the 1000's, be aware that anyone in the pool area can see directly into your room.

The bar is really expensive, but they have a buy one get one free happy hour that makes it worthwhile.

Room Tip: There are two towers. One with rooms in the 100's and the other with rooms in the 1000's. Th...

Extra clean and comfortable. Nice decoration. Close to historic Old San Juan. Great bartender. Martinis are totally awesome! Friendly staff. If you come to Puerto Rico, this is definitely your home away from home.
