Very nice place

This hotel does a great job of creating a comfortable, modern ambiance in the middle of the Colonial Zone of the City, without taking away the historical elements of the facility. The room was spectacular the lobby, lounge and pool area, gorgeous. Gym was small, but enough for myself and my husband to sweat a bit from exercise. The staff was friendly and relatively nice, but I definitely got the vibe that unless you are a heavy tipper, don't expect good service. They were looking for good tips at every turn and if they didn't get it, they weren't giving you good attention the next time around. Neighborhood offers the history lover a taste for the first island of the New World within walking distance. We had a great time and would stay again, but our friends live here now so we'll be staying with them from now on. I recommend, but bring tip money with you always!
