Default AOS - Which pier in San Juan?

We're on the AOS from San Juan the end of June and am
in the process of deciding between El Convento and Sheraton
for precruise stay.

Do you know which pier for the AOS? I've read from some hotel
reviews that the larger ships dock at the pier further away from
downtown SJ. But we were just in SJ on the Mariner in Oct at the pier right downton.....missed
Coco Cay because of rough weather and went to SJ instead.

Default PIER

Lou, you will sail from the Pan American pier. Have sailed on the AOS three times and just loved it. Also stayed at the Sheraton before and liked it also. Bob

I've sailed 2 different times from San Juan on AOS. A couple of years ago, we stayed at the El Convento. This past December, we stayed at the Sheraton Old San Juan. Both are nice hotels. It depends on the type of hotel you're looking for. If you want a hotel that feels more like a chain hotel, then go with the Sheraton (it also has a casino). The El Convento is also very nice but has more of a local feel to the rooms / furniture, etc. Both are the same time from hotel to the Pan American pier (about 10-15 mins).
