Perfect hotel for families or couples traveling together. This trip was a three night pre-cruise stay for two couples. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment, number 6.
The hotel is on a quiet street in the middle of Old San Juan, perfect for exploring the old city without a car. Parking in the old city looked difficult and I would not recommend it. Getting from the airport is easy via cab and only $20 to $30 depending on the number of bags. It's a small hotel, so be prepared with the address as the driver may not know it by name. It was also about the same cab fare to get to the Pan American cruise pier (Celebrity and Royal Caribbean departures).
Apartment six has a living room, fully appointed kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each bedroom had a queen bed and a separate bathroom attached with showers. There was laundry and a dishwasher in the apartment. For those continuing on with their vacation, pack some detergent pods and wash you cloths before you leave. You'll have a few days less cloths to lug.
The rooftop deck was our favorite and we spent many hours drinking wine and watching the sunset over the city. A beautiful breakfast was delivered every morning and included fresh fruit salad, fresh bread, cheese, deli meats, cookies, juice and coffee. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful with recommendations. We don't speak Spanish and they called cabs for us when we wanted to venture out of the old city.
If you're traveling with friends or family and considering booking a couple rooms at a hotel, definitely consider La Terraza. It was about the same as two rooms at the Marriott but so much more space and better service. A better value overall.
We've traveled and stayed at all levels of accommodations and this hotel was perfect for us. It was like staying at a friends apartment. If you're the type who expects a sterile hotel feel, this may not be for you. While we were there the hot water was an issue. Seemed the solar heater couldn't keep up. The air conditioning worked, but some rooms were frigid while others couldn't get cool enough. We rolled with it and had a great time.
