Hyatt House San Juan: Isolated & Lonely

The Hyatt House San Juan Hotel Review is part of the Despacito! TPOL Moves to Puerto Rico Trip Report.

Getting There: There is no Uber at SJU airport. Pickups are not allowed there. a screenshot of a map

Like the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino, the Hyatt House is in Zone 5.a close up of a receipt


Have you ever found yourself wandering the streets of Brickell on a sunny afternoon, wondering why you aren’t spending it on South Beach? That feeling that you’re missing out is the same way I felt when I stayed at the Hyatt House Puerto Rico which is located next to the Hyatt Place and across the street from the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino. Obviously the hotel is not meant to accommodate those that come for the beaches of Puerto Rico or the charm of Old San Juan. It is meant for business travelers whose companies pay the obscene $300 rate for a typical Hyatt House.a sign in front of a building a car parked outside of a building a building with palm trees and a street a building with palm trees and street lights at night

The Room 

Hyatt House is what a basic New York apartment should look like. A king size bed, a flat TV, air conditioning, and proper appliances are not a lot to ask for. Hyatt House had this and much more.

TPOL’s TIP: Walk over to the Sheraton and use their pool, no keycard required.


I don’t have much to say about this property. It serves a practical purpose and has quality rooms. Still, I would never pay the retail rate and was happy to use cash and points.



  1. It’s not lonely, it’s uh… secluded.
    As to the Brickell statement, I like Brickell. It’s so much nicer than it used to be, back when the area was all soulless condos and offices. Now it has vibe, without the frenetic pace of South Beach.

    • Brickell is great, just not on Sunday when everyone is at the beach and you’re wandering around a ghost town.

  2. I hate that. The only time I’ve ever stayed at a Hyatt House (that wasn’t a mattress run) was by AMS b/c I was at the end of a work trip that required me to overnight to get one of the non-stops home. I was 20 minutes from Amsterdam, but it felt like a world away. I just had dinner alone and watched like…CNN or something. Terrible to feel isolated like that.
