I was here after a very long day of travel for work. I was so excited to put my head down on a signature Marriott bed and pass out. Unfortunately, the fates had other things in mind. I went to my room and it was ok. The bed was a bit lacking in terms of a Marriott, but doable. I... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this tidy hotel near the river walk. Quiet and attentive staff. Room was very clean and had all the amenities. Breakfast was pricey so plan on eating elsewhere. Lots to chose from on river walk a short walk away. Self park is handy.

Great first impressions warm, welcoming and continued throughout our stay. Valet parking attendant greeted us with a cheerful welcome; told us a little about the hotel and area and restaurants within walking distance. Lobby was beautiful and inviting; complimentary apples and fusion waters. Front Desk staff greeted us with "welcome, we've been expecting you"; very professional "polished" staff. Any time... More

This hotel beats the Marriott Riverwalk. It has the bedside outlets and bathroom vanity at a normal height. Most noticeably, they do not use the horrible scent machines. The hotel is clean and they don't need to try and hide odors. The kids also loved the peacock.

I've driven by this place a hundred times and it looks nice on the outside but it's the inside that really sells the place. There is a nice bar, restaurant, gift shop, pool and garden area with peacocks roaming around. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was really good... More

I searched Trip Advisor for hotels near the Alamo. It's not easy to judge distances, and "near the Riverwalk" is not necessarily "near the Alamo." As it turns out, this hotel is neither near the Riverwalk nor near the Alamo, at least relative to other large hotels in the city. Having said that, though, it is within walking distance of... More

We booked the hotel by bidding on Priceline for a River Walk hotel. While not on the River Walk, the hotel was just a short five minute walk to one of the access points. The front desk personnel were welcoming and helpful, and were able to meet our request for a quiet room away from the general traffic flow. We... More

We traveled to San Antonio for our son's graduation from USAF. Our family members totaled 34, so we decided to rent the Historic Victoria House for our celebration. The service was exceptional, the food was delicious, the price was reasonable, and the environment was picture perfect for memories! We had privacy and intimacy that we could not have had at... More

We have stayed at the place probably 20+ times over the many years as we would drive to SAT from our West Texas town. We have seen it deteriorate during the early 2000's and now the staff is making every effort to update/upgrade the business. It remains a very favorite of ours and it is heartening to see such great... More
