Everything abut my stay just worked. The checkin was fast and efficient and when I opened the door to the room, I was blown away. It was a really nice, good size room with a large sitting area, bathroom and separate bedroom, one of the nicer rooms I have had while out traveling on business. The TV in the living... More

This was our second time staying and I can not express how great this place is. The rooms are amazing and all of the staff are very friendly and very helpful. We will be back every year for my birthday.

Great central location, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and facilities. Only problem during a 7 day stay was they ran out of regular coffee for the room. Short walk to Alamo, San Fernando sanctuary, Mexican market, Rivercenter mall and museums.

I enjoyed my stay there because it was located within walking distance of outstanding dinning. In addition, there was a CVS near by so I could get snacks and water. 5 stars to the valet reps who where knowledgeable to the area and gave me excellent service. Thank you.

The hotel staff was very friendly and and professional from the time I arrived until my departure 3 days later. I would recommend this hotel for anyone seeking a fine experience in San Antonio. The location is great for taking full advantage of the Riverwalk area as will as the other businesses located in the area.

The rooms were comfortable and spacious. I loved them! The sleeping area and sitting area are separate so it was perfect. We could sit on the comfy sofas, chat, watch TV, and then go to bed without bothering others who wanted to stay up. The beds are SO comfortable and the rooms are especially clean. Spacious bath. The location is... More

The hotel staff was very friendly and professional from the moment we arrived until the moment we departed. The facilities were very nice and clean. The Hotel is right on the riverwalk which gives easy access to a lot of restaurants and beautiful view.

Excellent rooms with a separate sleeping area/sitting area. We enjoyed having drinks and breakfast on the outdoor terrace, next to the Walk. Would recommend, particularly if you can snag a bonus while booking like the $75 food and beverage voucher we did.

Staff was great - friendly. The room - while I do not like the decorating style at all - was clean and would have been very comfortable for a much longer stay. Very roomy suite. Nice access to river walk. I did not eat at restaurant, but spent some time in atrium like bar which had a nice atmosphere. Hotel... More
