Default San Juan Hotel

We are flying into San Juan the day before our cruise in December. Can anyone recommend a nice hotel to stay at for one night prior to cruising? Do any of the hotels offer shuttle service to the Port/pier?

Thanks,

Bev

My wife and i stayed in the InterContinental Hotel in San Juan. We found it to be very comfortable and reasonable. The Hotel is on the water front and provides a very nice view for the outside rooms. They do offer hotel to pier transportation. It has several good eating places close by(within walking distance) and a casino inside the hotel. 787-791-6100. I hope it's ok for me to give their number out over the net.

In Feb. '04 we stayed at the Condado on the beach. It was very nice. We didn't order a special room, but ended up with a room on the top floor with concierge service, free hors d'oeuvres on Sat. night and free extensive continental breakfast on Sun. morning.
Our package included the RCI shuttle service. I don't know about hotel shuttles.

You can also use one of the cruiseline approved hotels. Call your travel agent or RCCL. Good luck

Bev,

A couple years ago, I stayed at the Radisson Condado. It was pretty decent and reasonably priced, and there were decent restaurants in the hotel and in the area.

Norm.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, it was nice & small, I think we paid like $70 per night for the 2 nights we were there. We didn't need anything fancy as we were there for the cruise. (It's not the new HIE they just built, its the other one). It's clean & they are very friendly.

It has a small pool & continental breakfast. There's no resturant, but there's a few within a 2-3 block walk. Nice area & its safe. There's also a store about 4 blocks away (forgot the name...Walgreens type thing) that has everything you need in case you forgot something for the cruise.

Sites to check....www.orbitz.com, travelocity.com, hotels.com for hotel rates. Plus check Tripadvisor.com for people's reviews. But don't take their opinions to heart, some people are more picky than others. What they don't like, you might and visa versa.

I also stayed at the Intercontinental thru Priceline bidding a few years ago. Very nice with an on the beach restaurant. 20 minute cab ride to pier. Also stayed at the Sheraton San Juan. It's downtown San Juan across from the cruise pier. Nice hotel and good for walking around the colonial town and seeing the Fort .
