This property is walking distance from the Alamo and Riverwalk. It's a very busy area surrounded by many hotels, eateries, and tourist attractions. Parking is expensive: $25/day. Valets are very helpful and quick to respond. You may find a space along College Dr. or another area close by, but most don't allow overnight parking. The rooms are clean and spacious... More

Upon initial arrival, we had a nice accommodating room waiting for us. In our Marriott profile, we have specifics that were noted and honored. As we came in from each in and out, we were greeted by name and welcomed back. This hotel is super quiet within the rooms. Who would have known it was booked to capacity! Convenient to... More

My family & I stayed here for 3 nights. The room was a great price. The hotel is a very short walk to the Alamo, Riverwalk and many other must see attractions while in San Antonio. The staff was very friendly. The valet attendants were quick & helpful. Parking is a bit pricey at $24 per day, but being in... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. Everything was good, especially the location. Just a walking distance to the nearest mall and places of interests. However we didn't know that the hotel charge $24 (incl tax) per day for parking. Although the price for this hotel is cheaper than most hotels at the same location, but don't forget to... More

This hotel is about 2 blocks from the Alamo and a short walk to the Riverwalk. It is a typical Residence Inn. The rooms are large , have a kitchen. The staff will buy grocery items for you, if requested. Our rooms were clean and quite. Checking in if you are driving can be a problem. There is no where... More

We stayed here because we didn't get into the main conference hotel, and it was amazing! Our colleagues were jealous of our hotel! The 5 minute walk to the Riverwalk & Convention Center is easy. The free breakfast is diverse and robust - including really good fresh fruit and toppings for scrambled eggs. It was fresh, clean, and tasty! yum!... More
