Temperature was freezing and there were no blankets on the bed or in the room. Several rooms on our floor were being worked on before10am without prior notice. I think a sign along the lines of "we apologize for any inconvenience as we work on improvements to the hotel" would have been appreciated.

The property location was great, but the room was not very clean. Our view was of the back of a building. Thankfully we were only there for 1 night.

Beautiful location - the roof terrace and pool area provides amazing views of incoming cruise ships and the rooftops of old San Juan. Interior views are equally stunning of an old growth tree and open air courtyard which serves as the hotel restaurant. The rooms themselves have exposed wood ceilings, tile floors, extremely comfortable beds and pillows and modern amenities.
