get local flavor at the doubletree hilton....welcoming staff, helpful, pick up local street maps in lobby. a nice change of pace to the large resorts and just a short walk to restuarants on de diego or ashford ave, beautiful public beach 4 blocks bring your towel/beverage, local shopping nearby.
fab massage on site by appt at fitness center, hot tub, small pool, plenty of towels and outdoor seating/tables, computer access in room or business center, small but comfy room with fridge(grocery across street sells everything), microwave, coffeemaker, hairdryer, safe, tv.
just 75 cents exact change only to take A5 bus on de diego outside hotel to old san juan bus terminal 1 block from cruise piers and town....about 20-30 minutes. while ideally located for those who like to walk, rental cars and taxis will also get you to casino's, dinner, or the rainforest. i did take advantage of the hotel and adjacent restuarants and they were ok, my favorite "local cuisine restuarants" include "yerba buena" on ashford, and in viejo san juan: "el picoteo" in el convento hotel, or "raices" a short walk from the old san juan bus terminal (after 10pm i take a cab back).
