Embassy Suites Hotel

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by benlin on July 28, 2006

Although the Embassy Suites Hotel is not the classiest of them all along hotel row, you’ll definitely get the bang for your buck. Given its close proximity to the airport, this hotel is convenient for those on a short stay in San Juan. The rooms are quite spacious with a separate bedroom and living room area equipped with a coffeemaker, microwave and refrigerator. The living room couch pulls out for extra overnight guests. The pool area is nice, but nothing you wouldn’t expect at a large hotel chain in the Caribbean.
The interior of the hotel lobby gives off a rainforest-like atmosphere with large plumed trees and mini waterfalls placed around the atrium. The hotel does not have a large nightclub like the El San Juan Hotel and Casino, but there is a dance floor where a live band plays salsa and merengue. The perks of the hotel include complimentary breakfast every morning from 6 am-10am and a daily free happy hour from 5-7 pm, serving ice-cold pina coladas, daiquiris, and stiff long island iced teas.

The staff is very helpful and welcoming and is always willing to provide suggestions on where to eat and where to enjoy San Juan’s nightlife. The front desk will often have copies of local maps and driving directions to the main sites of the island if you decide to take a day trip. All in all, it was an enjoyable and comfortable stay at the Embassy Suites for a budget traveler.
