We traveled to San Antonio for a weekend with family. Others in our group had Marriott Rewards so we chose the Rivercenter hotel. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and helpful. We had a corner room on the 38th floor. The room was clean and spacious. The only problem was the noise coming from the street. It was as if we... More

We stayed here in February. We were in San Antonio for a cheer competition at the Alamo Dome, so we went through our gym/the competition to book the rooms. We only had 2 choices of hotels--the Marriott Rivercenter and the Sheraton. We chose the Marriott, which I think was the better choice between the two. We booked 2 rooms (we... More

The Marriott Rivercenter is a really nice looking, expensive (for the area) and well located hotel. That is about where the good part ends. This hotel lacks in many areas and has some benefits. It all depends on what you are looking for. As with all of my reviews: here are the good, the bad and the ugly. GOOD: Location.... More

Usually we prefer smaller hotels with more charm.....however, the Marriott Rivercenter has several things going for it. Primarily, it's within walking distance of the Convention Center...and across the street from the Riverwalk hotel (with which it is often confused). And...it is adjacent to the famed Riverwalk area which offers a plethora of restaurants and honky-tonk shops, strolling musicians, joggers, and... More

I would not rate this hotel as the absolute finest....but it is a well run facility. It is probably the best location in all of San Antonio for the Riverwalk area. The Rivercenter mall is actually attached to the hotel....so you have a ton of choices for things to do. You can ride one of the river boats, go to... More

First the good things: service is as usual very good to excellent Marriott standards. If you want to be downtown near the Riverwalk the location is excellent. Bar is very good, restaurant okay and convenient. The downsides: an old property that has a bit of a mildew odor. Small pool area, no view at all, smells of chlorine which is... More

This is my second stay here in the last 15 months. The location is convenient, adjacent to the Riverwalk and a short walk to the Alamo. Many people complain about how busy the hotel is, which affects check out and the elevator wait. However, on both visits, while the hotel was experiencing multiple convention groups I did not find any... More

After having our at parked and all our luggage taken out, we find out we were at the wrong Marriott. The staff was more than happy to set us up with a room (at the same rate) at this location. It was perfect! The hotel empties out right at the RiverCenter Mall, allowing access to the mall and riverwalk. The... More

Stayed here for five nights during the TMS 2013 convention. The connection with the Rivercenter is nice for shopping and breakfast alternatives. Upon arrival I asked for a good room and was given a corner room with excellent view at the 22th floor. I was also allowed a late departure at 1400.

I am a Platinum elite member with Marriott and as you might expect have stayed in a lot of Marriott's. There are some pluses to this hotel, especially the location. However, there were too many disappointments at this hotel. The parking gate never worked properly and was a real pain to deal with, as your passcard wouldn't work, there were... More
