The Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel and Casino is located in San Juan, Puerto Rico and has been reduced to a SPG Category 3 property meaning free night awards start at 7,000 Starpoints per night, and Cash and Points is available for $55 plus 3,500 points.
Getting to the hotel from San Juan-Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport will run you roughly $20 one-way, since Uber is not allowed to pick up at the airport. However, Uber can pick up at the hotel and the ride back is under $10 for UberX.
As a SPG Gold Member, thanks to the status from my American Express Platinum Card, I was upgraded to a deluxe room upon check-in, which means that it offered a nice balcony. The majority of rooms don’t have balconies, though it was nice to receive the upgrade.
In addition, as a cardholder of the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express, I received complimentary access to the Sheraton Club Lounge, a perk of this card. Note, this benefit applies to all stays including award stays as well.

Overall the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel and Casino was a nice property and I would return here again if in the area. It’s a great value as a Category 3, so I’d recommend using SPG points if staying here, but note the hotel adds on a $15 fee per night. The Club Lounge was also a nice feature the property has.
There is a non-smoking casino in the hotel, though don’t expect anything like Las Vegas, as it only has a handful of tables. One negative while I was here, is that the whirlpool by the pool wasn’t hot. I did inform the hotel so hopefully it’s been resolved.
