Stayed here for a week long convention. It was nice to have a full sized refrigerator and microwave and a decent place to stretch out for the relatively modest price. The rooms are good sized, clean, and comfortable. The staff was all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was just ok but it's free so if you don't like it there... More

Located just off the Riverwalk and right behind the Alamo, it is an easy (and safe) walk to restaurnats on the river, Alamo, Rivercenter Mall. Room was spacious, clean, overlooked the Alamo, quiet. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is over the top: eggs, sausage, potatoes, cereal, waffles, fruit, juices, etc.

Two night stay for business. Typical Residence Inn. Pretty good in and out access. Close to freeway and only 15-20 minutes max from airport. As other reviewers said, one block from the Alamo, and a little confusing two-three blocks from the Riverwalk. Views from the room windows are pretty lame. Breakfast was ok, not great, just ok. Valet parking and... More

Great place to stay downtown. A couple of blocks from the River walk. One block from the Alamo. The rooms were lovely. We had a little kitchen with a dishwasher-coffee and popcorn supplied. The complimentary breakfasts were the best we'd ever experienced. Also, different weeknights, they had mixers downstairs with free food and free beer. The pool was nice and... More

We visited San Antonio recently and stayed at the Residence Inn. I enjoyed everything about my stay here! It was steps to the Alamo, the River Walk, and downtown. I took a cab to market square, but it was only $5. The breakfast was AMAZING, they have 4 waffle irons so you don't have people stacked up and waiting. This... More

From the moment we pulled into the valet parking area to the helpful and friendly front desk attendant, we were welcomed and treated very well.

We stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days. I have several things to comment on. Here are my thoughts: Pros: - clean - Nice extra large breakfast area compared to other Residence Inns I have stayed at - Loved the area designated for kids while having breakfast because the TV channel was always child appropriate and not on CNN...

For one, the photo's you see on their website, the hotel actually looks the way it is in their photo's. They DO NOT deceive you! When we went this past weekend to see our newly graduated Airman, we stayed in a 2-bedroom suite and the room was amazing! Separate rooms and bathrooms so a lot of privacy especially for you... More
