Rated 1 out of 5 by Sleepy123456 Avoid room 807 like the plaugue
This room is under the free weight area of the GYM which is open 24 hours a day. At 4am guests began working out and dropping very heavy weights on the floor/my ceiling. The hotel (Javier the night supervisor) told me they would close the gym for a few hours so I could sleep. At 5 am I realized he lied as it sounded like boulders were crashing on my head.
They offered to change my room in the middle of the night at this point but I had to be up soon anyway. If you need sleep (like most humans) do not stay here. The management lies and the hotel staff makes very little attempt to remedy bad situations. It's a shame becuase the hotel is really beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by canuck43 Great 2 night Pre-cruise stay
We enjoyed 2 days at this hotel before our cruise. It has become our preferred hotel because the beds are so comfortable! You know what to expect when you arrive--a clean room, quick check in and you can settle in fairly quickly. The casino onsite is nice to have and the beverage servers are efficient and very friendly. Our last stay was in a junior suite and we really enjoyed that room. Looking forward to our next visits in 2015

Rated 1 out of 5 by BigBill49 HORRIBLE experience!!!!!!!!!!!
Hotel staff had no customer service capabilities!!! My wife and I "reserved" a refiridgerator due to a medical need. None were available at check-in, first come first serve regardless of reservation or medical need!!! It took 36 hours to get one!!! Staff failed to mention that a pile driver would be working outside of our ocean view room at 7 AM. We were left with no towels in the bathroon...it took 1/2 a day to get towels delivered to our room. No one on staff really cared.
I would urge anyone thinking of staying here to rethink. I'm rethinking Sheraton in general, clearly they have lost control of this facilty!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by crazy4travel Recommend mostly due to location
The hotel was fine: well located and clean. It does show its age in terms of decor and fixtures, but well maintained and all the standard features you expect at a Sheraton.
My biggest problem was the lack of passion from the staff. Front desk was not welcoming, just going through their motions. Bellman was standing at his podium needing me to ask him for assistance. Housekeeping only moved the cart when I couldn't fully go by in the hallway.
The upgrade as an SPG Platinum member was very nice in terms of a suite with a view, but no other recognition. Not even a bottle of water offered.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Krish123 Unclean Rooms and bad service
The front desk was not courteous and friendly. I used my award nights and upgraded to a suite. The room and bathrooms were dirty. They were not cleaned after the previous guests left. I had to call and wait for the cleaners to clean-up the room. The concierge has 2 people, a man and a lady . The man in the concierge was very good and helped us by booking our trips and returning the money the lady had collected incorrectly booked us on trips. The lady had booked us on a tour when no tours were running. She collected money upfront too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXTrvlAgt Cruising from San Juan???
Sheraton Old San Juan is a PERFECT location right across the street from the Cruise ship pier in Old San Juan. --If you are departing your cruise from Old San Juan on Carnival - this is the hotel you want to stay in. Just check out of this hotel and wheel your bags across the street & check in for the cruise. it could not be easier!!!
The other pier --Pan American Pier-- which is where Royal Caribbean, Celebrity & sometimes Princess ships dock (if departing from San Juan) you would want to stay at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino on 200 Convention Center Blvd. This hotel would be less than 3 mins. to the Pan American pier. It's almost across the street from this pier, but you would need a taxi - as it's a rather long walk down to the terminal buildings for this pier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Camacho605 Hotel Lobby Staff - Very unprofessional
I was able to check into the hotel in a timely fashion, hardly spent any time in the hotel itself. All I needed was a place to stay at night with the wife. On the last day at check out employee at counter try to bill me for services I did not reaquest/have. This is not the first time I stayed at this hotel but it will be the last. I do realize economy is bad but I do not believe in people trying to inflate prices just to make additional money. Employee try to charge me for valet parking when I never had these services. Be carefull when staying at this hotel, employees are looking to inflate prices and take advantage of tourists.

Rated 4 out of 5 Awesome Location
This hotel, while old and a bit outdated, makes up for it with AWESOME staff, that all seem to go above and beyond. I received a wonderfully upgraded room, it was huge. The location of this property is the best in Old San Juan, in front of the boardwalk with something going on 24/7 and walking distance to everything in Old San Juan. Loved staying here. The only reason I gave a four, is because it is a bit outdated and the bed is NOT up to normal sleeper standards.
