Hello - we are staying one night pre-crusie (Royal Caribbean) in Puerto Rico and are trying to decide between the Marriott San Juan Resort & Stellaris Casino and the Embassy Suites San Juan Hotel & Casino. We will be in San Juan on October 3rd (a Saturday night).
There are five of us so at the Marriott we will need two rooms, but at the Embassy we would be able to get one room - a 2 bed/2 bath - and will save about $100 (room price includes breakfast).
Both hotels have a casino - which is very important to mom since she loves to play the slot machines (this trip is a birthday celebration for her) while the rest of us will hang out in the water. We know that the Marriott is right on the ocean while the Embassy would be a short walk.
It would be great if there was a restaurant within walking distance from the hotel.
We would love to hear opinions on these options. Thanks for your assistance.
