Old San Juan

The Sheraton Old San Juan Hotel & Casino offers a unique location in the midst of picturesque and historical Old San Juan.  It’s the perfect location for meandering around and exploring the narrow winding cobblestone streets where you’ll find an array of quaint shops, art galleries, restaurants, nightlife, and national historic sites.

Offering a modern contrast to its old word location, the Sheraton Old San Juan Hotel & Casino offers 240 smoke free guest rooms with amenities that include the Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed & linens, deluxe toiletries, coffee maker, hair dryer, in-room safe, and high speed internet access.

Besides having so many restaurant choices available in Old San Juan, the Sheraton offers up a few on-site selections of their own.  The Chicago Burger Company features indoor and outdoor seating with great views of San Juan Bay; they serve up a delicious selection of burgers (you can even build your own) plus they offer full bar service – a perfect place to while away the afternoon and enjoy people watching.

Located on the second floor, Palio is the other on-site restaurant at the Sheraton Old San Juan Hotel & Casino which offers authentic Italian cuisine; be sure to try the homemade lasagne or the filet mignon.  Palio is also known for its colorful array of specialty drinks including their signature Tuscan Lemoncello Mojito.  The hotel also offers room service for breakfast and dinner.

The 7,000 square foot casino offers players a chance to try their luck at the 300+ slot machines or gaming tables including blackjack, roulette, and poker.

The top floor of the Sheraton Old San Juan Hotel & Casino is home to their fully equipped Health Club while the rooftop is home to the hotel’s swimming pool which offers expansive views of the cruise pier and San Juan Bay.  Tennis courts are available at nearby Central Park while golf can be arranged at the world-class 18-hole championship Ocean Course located at the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa.

Nearby points of interest within walking distance include the Plaza de Armas, El Morro, Castillo de San Cristobal, Catedral de San Juan, the picturesque views (and pigeons) found at Parque de las Palomas, the San Juan Museum of Art and History, and the artisans found along the waterfront at Paseo de la Princesa near the cruise piers.
