Default Beach or Old San Juan

Looking for some insight on where to stay please. Want a nice clean hotel, would prefer modern. If we stay out by a beach, will it be expensive to go check out Old San Juan. Is it expensive to get from the beach to Carnival Pier?
Has anyone stayed in San Juan recently and can recommend any hotels?
I appreciate any advice I can get. THANK YOU!!!

Check out the Sheraton, formerly the old Wyndham, right across the street frrm the pier, in Old San Juan...Easy walking to the shopping area, Hard Rock Cafe, and, nice views from the roof top

You could also stay in the Condado district...a strip of hotels, casinos and right in the middle of the action.

The Sheridan also has a nice roof top pool, some great views from up there. You can actually see the ships come in and when you get up the day of the cruise, your ship should be sitting there waiting for you.

The hotels that are by the beach are quite aways from Old San Juan and can be pricey. You'll have to decide if you want to be in Old San Juan or away by the beach??

Has the Sheraton been renovated recently? Is it in decent shape?

Well the sheraton is a good choice only problem is there is no Beaches near it also is not that cheap there are a lot of options but that will depend on what you are looking for casino?? Beach?? Or just near sight seen places??

Well, we don't have anything in mind. My preference is a nice clean modern hotel that I won't be afraid to stay in. It is only for one night, so we can cab it for some sight seeing and night life. I keep reading so many horrible reviews - even about the Sheraton not being clean and showing its wear. Appreciate any insight you or anyone can give me. Thanks
