Hotwire Hotel: 4* San Juan (Condado) Doubletree

By Chukchi,

Recommended Posts

Be careful. I was looking for a 4* hotel on the beach in San Juan but had not included the beachfront amenity in my search and ended up with the Hilton Doubletree which appears to recently have been raised to a 4* hotel level. I'll likely end up eating this and booking a beachfront property as the pool area doesn't look that big and though they have a Beach Club relationship with their sister hotel(s), that no longer includes La Concha, just Isla Verde Courtyard by Marriott which requires a cab, no shuttle. I'm sure it's a nice hotel, but we're not interested in flying all the way from Boston to be in the city. Do you know when the Doubletree graduated to a 4* status?

Sorry, not sure if I posted this in the proper forum, but this was a Hotwire Secret Hot Rate hotel, not Priceline. Not sure what the current star rating is for Price.line, but I think it's 3.5* and Hotels..com is the same.

Sorry to see that you don't like the outcome.

 

I have moved your thread to the Hot.wire section

Thanx for reporting this new star rating to the BetterBidding Hotwire Hotel List

 

I don't know when HOTWIRE upgraded this property.

 

Can you please add a reply to this thread with the amenities that are currently showing in the MY ACCOUNT link for this purchase... you can still view this information by going to HOTWIRE and clicking the MY ACCOUNT link near the top right of their home page.

 

We hope you find the hotel better then expected.

As you say you are coming from Boston, and the above dates look to be only a one nite stay, i assume this is part of a longer trip... did you buy one nite in order to learn which hotel it was and now need additional nites, do you already have a different hotel to stay for the balance of your trip, or is this for a pre-cruise/post-cruise stay?

I've reserved rooms at the Caribe Hilton for 2 nights following (Fri/Sat) and El Conquistador for 2 nights after that (Sun/Mon). We 100% want to be at El Conquistador for the last 2 nights, so didn't want to chance that, but the 1st 3 I was hoping for Caribe, Concha, Stellaris or even Gran Melia for the 1st night then back to one of those for Fri/Sat. BTW, I thought I had used the link from this site on the original purchase.
