Default San Juan-Condado Plaza or Holiday Inn??

Looking to book for 3 nights precruise next Feb. Just need a backup plan if nothing works out on Priceline or Hotwire. Prices are pretty equal. Would like a nice pool, on beach or close by. Close to restaurants. Will do a little siteseeing, but don't mind grabbing a cab. Just wondering, they both look nice, Holiday Inn gets better reviews on Tripadvisor. Thanks for any info!!

I stayed in the Holiday Inn in San Juan. It's a nice little hotel. Across the street from a beach and park. Its also walking distance from shops and places to eat.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

We did Holiday Inn Express. Perfect little place for a pre-cruise. Don't expect a 5 star hotel, but its small & cozy. Nice small pool, lots of good restaurants around & not too far from the beach.

We stayed there 2 days & plan on doing so again. Plus AAA rated.
