Best Western Condado 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.

We stayed in Old San Juan, and felt safe walking everywhere or taking the shuttle bus (free). Don't know about locations, but thought all Old town is safe, and lots of places to eat.

Condado is also very walkable and has a nice selection of restaurants, though you'll certainly want to go into Old San Juan for at least one day. The more important question is whether or not you want to be on or near the beach. The Sheraton is far from the beach, and if you plan to go to the beach every day, then you're also going to spend a lot of money there on taxis.

Thanks for all the info. Ended up booking at Sheraton OSJ. We'll be visiting many beaches at our ports, so that swung the vote to the Sheraton.
