My mom and I were going on a cruise out of Old San Juan back in June. We flew in the day before departure so we needed a place to stay. I looked on line and came across CasaBlanca Hotel. Liked the look of the rooms, fabulous location only blocks (all down hill) to the cruise pier and the price was right. We flew there and took a taxi to the hotel. The owner was there to greet us and check us in. As we were doing so I realized I forgot my one bag in the taxi!! Needless to say I panicked!!! The owner of the hotel took care of it all. He called the cab company to come get us so we could go back to the airport to get our bag. In the end it all worked out and I got my bag back with no real problems. Except we had to pay for an extra trip to the airport and back. Which the owner of the hotel (please forgive me I can't remember his name!) offered and paid for half the cost!! The lobby of CasaBlanca was so nice and beautiful. I loved how they had the movie Casablanca playing on the TV! Our room was adorable with a balcony and the breakfast we had in the morning was nice in their wonderful little restaurant. I had debated whether or not to go with a "national chain" hotel or a small locally owned one. And I have to say i am so glad with the choice I made!! I am sure I would not have gotten any where near the personal touch from the bigger hotel. If I ever get to Old San Juan again I would with out a doubt book the CasaBlanca Hotel again!!!!
