El Morro Fort
El Morro Fort, or officially Castillo de San Felipe del Morro, stands guard at the entrance to San Juan harbor as a reminder of a by-gone era when invading countries would attempt sea attacks to take this prized city and harbor.
This beautiful 6-level fort was named in honor of Spain's King Philip II. The Fort wasn't initially built as the huge structure that you see today. It has gone through many enlargements and modifications, from the time it was first constructed by Spain through the time that it was occupied by the US Army.
Walk to Old San Juan
To walk from the hotel to Old San Juan, just walk outside the hotel and follow the sidewalk. It is about a 30 minute walk but it follows the coast line and the sidewalk has many places to stop with lookouts. It is a very easy walk. We suggest you walk there and take a taxi back.
