This is a wonderful location - right on the Riverwalk and about 1/3 mile to the Alamo. I was pleasantly surprised with the rooms and the service was good too. I suggest you make sure you are close to the concierge lounge - preferably on the same floor. I was on a different floor and my elevator did not go... More

We stayed there for two nights and when I just walked in the room there were some toe nails on the carpet. I called front desk to report it and the lady said she would send somebody to clean it. The room was never vacuumed. The room had a funny odor like old and felty. I will not stay there... More

For a business trip this is a great location to the convention center. It is a good walk to the hustle of the riverwalk. The 2 queen bed room was good size for the area, and the executive lounge was very nice with good food, snacks and breakfast. Under the hotel is a mall that was nice to walk around... More

Location is good but was underwhelmed from the start. My room was an ok size but the decor was tattered and furniture dated. It's not at all what I've become used to from staying at other Marriotts. Stayed at the Hyatt on the same trip over the road and that was far superior.

Beautiful lobby within walking distance to everything. There's a small fee to park at the hotel. The staff who checked us in was fantastic; very helpful and accommodating.

We stayed here for a convention and the hotel was much better then I had anticipated. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and were eager to assist whenever we had questions. I loved that everyone had an opinion about some of the best restaurants on the Riverwalk. We wanted to go someplace that wasn't a "chain" eatery, and staff... More

I haven't stayed here in years. I visited for a few days for a business meeting. This hotel is blah. My room was dated. The lobby was nondescript and the lobby bar was drab. Clearly they take advantage of convention business and their captive audiences.

The staff was welcoming from the moment we got here. Concierge was extremely helpful in picking restaurants...touring locations. I also loved that this hotel was very close to the Alamo which was the highlight of our trip! If I wanted to choose a quieter hotel I would have chosen Hotel Contessa or Valencia. Also centrally located but away from convention... More
