I made a 4 day business trio to san Antonio. This was the second stay I had at this hotel. I will definitely stay there on my next trip. The rooms were very clean and very good daily housekeeping. It is close to great cuisine. The staff at breakfast cared about the experience and insured I had a good start... More

Had a great experience the first time we stayed, that we had to come back for the second time, in a month. The beds are very comfortable, the staff are very friendly and the (hot) breakfast buffet was excellent for the price.

Well I feel in Cuba with a touch of Gilligan Island, there is constantly playing a cuban soundtrack, I am sure I have heard the full album at least 3 times already, the place has a mixture of latin stuff, mexican, caribbean stuff, but with a 70s look with parrots and strange Tiki stuff, but the rooms are very nice...

This hotel is not at the top of my list of hotels to stay at in San Antonio but it's not worst either. We booked this hotel and got a great deal through Priceline. I wouldnt pay the prices they have listed on their website. It's on the riverwalk but just as others mentioned its at the end so there... More

I booked a room on priceline at a reasonable price and this was the first hotel I stay in that I wasnt satisfied with, the location was perfect because everything was so close (Riverwalk). The room that we got was very small and we had no service at all, I had to stop a housekeeper in the hallway so she... More

Yes, it's technically on the Riverwalk but at the back end so it's a good walk (15-20mins) to the heart of the Riverwalk activities and on a hot Texas day, that's a long walk. Given that the location feels remote, I would not have felt safe walking the section from the hotel to the heart of the Riverwalk alone, day... More

Even though you can tell the hotel is an old one the fitness room and the hotel staff is really excellent. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you are happy and bend over backwards to accomidate you. We had a room overlooking the river walk and the view was very nice. The bed was comfortable and the... More
