Best Western Condada v Sheraton Old San Juan PR

We're going in a few days precruise and wondered about these two hotels. BW has a cheaper rate and includes breakfast. However, wonder if we will be spending a lot on cabs to get around? We're not renting a car.

Sheraton is more $$$ but am wondering if we'll actually save money staying here, since we can walk to a bunch of things, including the port.

Is either location safer than the other?

Any other tips I might not have thought of will be appreciated. :)

Both locations are safe, with plenty of options for dinning. The Sheraton OSJ would be walking distance from the forts, the BW a $12 cab ride. If you are departing from the piers in OSJ, then the Sheraton is right in front. But if you are at the Panamerican pier, then you would have to take a cab from either hotel, for about the same fare.

Just got back from Old San Juan!! Check out Laterraza hotel of San Juan. It Is absolutely the nicest place to stay. I have stayed their twice now, and will stay there again!! If You've never been to the Old City, it is all easily accessible by foot. The hotel is modern, and beautiful, as it is just under two years old. It is located in a building built in the middle 1700's. They have a few 1 bedrooms available, that run at $125-150 a night. It would take you about 10 minute walk from the port to get to the hotel. If you should wanna take a cab from the airport, it runs about $20. Check it out, and enjoy Your time, as I always do :))
